I saw in the Hebrew midwives a reverence for life. When ordered to interrupt the birth of Hebrew women so that male children would die the midwives refused. They treated each to-be-born child with the identical dignity, doing what they were trained to do to foster healthy live births for both girls and boys.
My mind flashed back a month or so to the 40th anniversary of the Roe v Wade decision by the US Supreme Court. I don’t mean for this blog to become political, but I couldn’t help making some connections. Our government like Pharaoh has deemed it acceptable to kill innocent pre-borns. God will deal with this as He wills. My hope and prayer is that the Church, God’s people, will follow the lead of the midwives acting on behalf of the pre-born in order to save their lives and to do so in an manner that upholds the dignity and sanctity of all life from conception to the grave.
These two midwives did what they could to preserve life… may all who call Jesus Lord do the same.
Think about it…
Lord, what can, should, must I do to uphold the dignity and sanctity of all life… from conception to natural death? … Amen.
