11 Jul Exodus 1:22 (Abort Unjust Law)
“Pharaoh then commanded all his subjects, ‘Throw into the river every boy that is born to the Hebrews, but you may let all the girls live.'” (full readings)
Rich’s Reflections: Today there exists a prejudice against the unborn. Many babies are aborted just because they are girls (China), handicapped, or inconvenient. In today’s Scripture, Pharaoh commanded his subjects to throw all baby boys into the river. Moses’ mother disobeyed this unjust law, and through a series of miracles her son became the leader who would help set the Israelites free from slavery. Could it be that babies saved from abortion today will grow up to be among the greatest leaders in human history? When we help save a baby’s life by praying in front of an abortion mill, we may be saving the life of a new Moses and thereby saving the lives of millions. Lord, give me the courage to stand up against the unjust law of abortion and protect the lives of children in the womb. Amen.
