For You From The Word
As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another. (Proverbs 27:17)
For You To Think About
Many of us can look back at a time in our lives when we needed an objective voice to help us reach a wise decision.
These specially-trained volunteers are matched one-on-one with a woman to listen and provide confidential, nonjudgmental support during an unplanned pregnancy. A Friend gives each woman straight information about pregnancy, parenting, abortion and adoption. A Birthmothers Friend raises awareness by helping a woman objectively look at all her options.
Only a pregnant woman can decide what route to take in her pregnancy. Yet scripture says, “As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another” (Proverbs 27:17). An honest friend, cultivating and challenging a woman, can help bring her decision clearly into focus.
By connecting with a Birthmothers Friend, a woman places herself in line for the blessing of wisdom from a loving Friend whose sole purpose is her well-being – no matter what decision she makes.
For You To Pray
Fill Birthmothers Friends with wisdom as they serve pregnant women. Show each one how to provide objective information that her matched woman needs to make a wise decision.
In Jesus’ name, Amen.
