Born This Day: Every Child Has a God-Ordained Destiny

For You From The Word

Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord. (Luke 2:11)

For You To Think About

mom and newborn babyA mother looks down at her newborn. What will that child become? During pregnancy and in the delivery room, there can be no way to fathom what the future holds for her baby.

Not so with Jesus.  Imagine the scene for Mary after her firstborn arrives:

“OK, Mom, here’s the deal. Your son is going to save the world. He is specially-anointed to deliver all the people who ever lived or will be born. And everyone will worship him.”

That’s pretty much what the angel announces in Luke 2:11: “Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord.”

Who can say what a child may contribute to our world? One baby will become a scientist who discovers a cure for HIV … a statesman who brings together shattered nations … a teacher who inspires hundreds of young people … a parent who raises a godly child … an evangelist who leads untold numbers into eternity … an employee who models hard work and commitment … a kind neighbor who demonstrates kindness in every action …

Jesus had a specific purpose. So does every child. How many parents would choose life if they could see what their child could contribute to the world?

For You To Pray

Heavenly Father,
Every child has a purpose ordained by You. Allow their parents to choose life … so their children can fulfill their destiny.
In Jesus’ name, Amen.
