What More Young People Learn Each January

For You From The Word

We pray this in order that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and may please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God. (Colossians 1:10, NIV)

For You To Think About

Teen: "I am the pro-life generation"In a Gallup survey, 72% of teenagers stated they believe abortion is morally wrong. Nowhere does this pro-life trend reveal itself more than in the numbers of young people who participate in the annual March for Life, held in Washington, D.C. on or around January 22 – the anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the 1973 Supreme Court decision to legalize abortion.

Here’s what teenagers tell us what they learn in January:

Choices have impact. “I learned every choice we make directly affects so many people. When a woman chooses abortion, her choice affects the woman, the unborn baby, the father of the unborn baby, the families, friends, and God.”

Choices can have a negative outcome. “I learned that innocent people are losing their lives because of a choice.”

Choices can have positive outcome. “I learned that doing the right thing may not always be the popular or cool thing to do, but when you do the right thing, you probably won’t need to tell God, ‘I’m sorry.’”

Good choices won’t strand you. “I learned there are always people who are willing to help you and love you, no matter what has happened.”

Choice is not the same as information. “I learned many facts about abortion that I never knew.”

The young generation is not only the largest pro-life generation in history, but they also continue to grow and learn life lessons.

For You To Pray

Heavenly Father,
Thank You for moving in the hearts of young people to have a passion for life. Allow these young leaders to continue to learn life lessons. Let them share their passion with their peers and move an entire generation to say yes to life.
In Jesus’ name, Amen.
