For You From The Word
Encourage one another daily, as long as it is called Today, so that none of you may be hardened by sin’s deceitfulness. (Hebrews 3:13)
For You To Think About
83% women who experienced the pain of abortion would have made a different choice if they’d been encouraged to consider other options by parents, family members, husbands, boyfriends, social workers, counselors, doctors, or friends, according to a survey distributed by The Elliot Institute.
Those numbers point to the power of encouragement. In Hebrews 3:13, we’re told to “encourage one another … so that none of you may be hardened by sin’s deceitfulness.” Without encouragement, there is a real danger that our hearts can harden. Hardened hearts lead to dark choices. Without encouragement, a woman can be tempted to make a decision against life.
But the numbers tell a wonderful truth. Pregnant women overwhelmingly want to choose life and encouragement makes a difference! If more women had encouragement and support from a special Friend during an unplanned pregnancy, think of how many lives could be saved.
For You To Pray
Provide women with the encouragement and support from a special Friend during an unplanned pregnancy. Use Your people to serve these women, provide support, and allow many lives to be saved. Show me how I can help.
In Jesus’ name, Amen.
