29 Feb Pro-Life is Pro-Love (Jn 13:34-35) by Anna Dwinger
“A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” ~ John 13:34-35
Anna’s Reflections: Somehow pro-life has become thought of as the “anti-woman” term, or “pro-hate.” The Devil has blinded the eyes of those that claim to be pro-women and pro-choice. How can anyone think that being pro-life means that we also hate women? To our opponents the child in the womb is not thought of as more important than, or equal to the woman’s life. This seems bizarre to a believer. We know that God has made us and known us from the beginning. Even BEFORE we were ever born, God knew our name and drew up a plan for our life. We are precious to Him. It’s time to change the minds and hearts of the unbelievers. We need to prove to them that we are pro-love! Our message needs to be of Christ’s love for them, and the women, and the unborn child. If they spew hate, we must come back with words of God’s love for them. Show them compassion at every turn. Pray for them. Hurt for them. Let them see the love we have for each other, and for them and their hearts will be convicted. Proverbs 25: 21-22 says, “If your enemy is hungry, give him food to eat; And if he is thirsty, give him water to drink; For you will heap burning coals on his head, And the LORD will reward you.”
