11 Nov Sound Teaching (Titus 2:8) by Dr. Rich Reich
“Your teaching must have the integrity of serious, sound words to which no one can take exception.” ~ Ti 2:8 (full readings)
Rich’s Reflections: As LIFE Runners, we are the voice for the unborn. It is our responsibility to speak with “the integrity of serious, sound words” in defense of the unborn; “words to which no one can take exception” (Ti 2:8). If the unborn child could speak, what would he or she say? The following is a poem written by Leslie Rummel entitled “Voice of the Unborn Child”:
I am here! Please don’t be deceived. I AM a human being, from the moment I was conceived! So why is there such sadness? And why is there such gloom? For God is carefully weaving me within my mother’s womb! Is that the voice of anger? Or is it doubt and fear? Is it possible that the world out there doesn’t want me here? Am I unwanted? For I’m so meek and mild. Does anybody hear me now? I’m the voice of the unborn child. Are people disappointed ’cause I’m not in the plan? Jesus help me now. I just don’t understand! Despite what has happened, please do me no harm. Let me come into the world and be loved in someone’s arms. My plea is that you save my life. Can you hear my cry? Have mercy on your child within and please don’t let me die! The Father has a plan for me and He will help you see. I’ll be a blessing to someone who’ll take good care of me! I ask you now to let me live. Please know that it is true. You will NEVER be alone ’cause God will help you through. In the name of Jesus, and in your pain and strife; hear the voice of your unborn child. Give to me, my life.
