For You From The Word
Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith and in purity. (1Timothy 4:12, NIV)
For You To Think About
Evidence suggests that the battle for life is being won in the hearts of our youth, particularly among Millennials (or Gen Y) – those born between the early 1980s and 2000.
- 2010 Knights of Columbus/Marist poll: 58% of Millennials believe that abortion is morally wrong
- 2004 Rock the Vote poll: 54% of new voters were pro-life. Among first-time minority voters, 61% of Latino and 59% of African American respondents were pro-life.
- 2004 Hamilton College/Zogby poll: among 18-29 year-olds, 70% females would not consider abortion if they became pregnant in high school.
One good reason Millennials are known increasingly as “the most pro-life generation in America”: since the 1973 Roe v. Wade Supreme Court ruling which legalized a woman’s right to choose Millennials have lost one-third of their generation to abortion … those who would now be their friends, colleagues, and associates.
For You To Pray
Thank You for moving in the hearts of young people, leading them to believe in the value of life. Strengthen their convictions and resolve. Use the Millennial generation to point many more people to Your truth.
In Jesus’ name, Amen.
