A Tale of Two Women

For You From The Word

The second man said, “Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom.” Jesus answered him, “I tell you the truth, today you will be with me in paradise.” (Luke 23:42-43)

For You To Think About

Two women discovered they were pregnant, though they didn’t plan to be.

crying womenThe first woman railed at God. “How could You let this happen?” she screamed, shaking her fist at heaven. “If You’re really God, You can deliver me from this ordeal!”

The second woman bowed her head. “Help me, God,” she prayed. “This is very hard. Remember me and my child.”

When Jesus hung on the cross, two men on either side of Him also suffered. One lashed out in anger. The other asked Jesus to remember Him and help Him. Jesus promised the second man eternal life.

There is no question – the two women in our tale are in a very difficult situation. And God loves each woman deeply. He cannot love either one more or love her less. The difference between the two is their attitude. God honors an open heart. When someone faces an unplanned pregnancy with a heart that is open to God, He can work powerfully to transform lives.

For You To Pray

Loving Father,
Work in the hearts of those who face an unplanned pregnancy. Give them an openness and receptivity to Your powerful work in their lives.
In Jesus’ name, Amen.
