05 Jun [1st Wed] Difference Makers (Is 49:4-5) by Dr. Pat Castle
Though I thought I had toiled in vain, yet my reward is with the LORD who formed me as his servant from the womb. ~ Is 49:4-5
Reflection: While praying in front of abortion facilities, we compassionately (“to suffer with”) meet the confusion going in and the hurt coming out. We have not toiled in vain. Let us pause to remember that in 1991 there were over three times more abortion facilities than pregnancy help centers and now over four times more pregnancy help centers than abortion facilities. 78% of post-abortion women said that if just one person had encouraged them to choose life then they would not have aborted their child. “One day an old man was walking down the beach just before dawn. In the distance he saw a young man picking up stranded starfish and throwing them back in the sea. As the old man approached the young man, he asked, “Why do you spend so much energy doing what seems to be a waste of time?” The young man explained that the stranded starfish would die if left in the morning sun. The old man exclaimed, “But there must be thousands of starfish. How can your efforts make any difference?” The young man looked down at the starfish in his hand and as he threw it to safety in the sea, he said, “It makes a difference to this one!””
