Without a doubt, abortion is the greatest bloodstain on our culture. Without a doubt, it’s the main way we, as a nation, reject life. It has become much too convenient and commonplace to kill the unseen children in our wombs. No matter what, we cannot step back on our resolve to speak out for each innocent life and every family affected by abortion. Now is always a time to move forward.
I’ve been thinking lately, though, that pro-lifers ought to take a bit of time to consider how we live our day to day lives. In simple, easy ways – or easily forgotten ones – do we build a culture of life? For instance, you can read my article for Live Action here that discusses how we view children when we see them at the grocery store or at church. Silly? Maybe…but’s itself something I know I had to think about.
What about more serious things like driving tired? Do you know how many people get killed because another driver was asleep at the wheel? Don’t risk people’s lives like that! Pull over, stop at a friend’s house, chew gum, blare music, roll down the window – whatever it takes to not accidentally fall asleep at the wheel. Don’t take risks. Drinking a little too much before driving should go without saying.
How about being an overall careful driver? (You can see I’ve been thinking about driving lately.) Instead of rushing so fast to get to the next place – even if we’re late – what about slowing down and being sure to REALLY watch the road and be extra polite to other drivers. I firmly believe these kind of easy, simple actions can help save lives.
Do you have ideas on how to build a culture of life in the day-to-day things we regularly do? To stop abortion, we often need to step out of our comfort zone. But for these other things, we already do them – so why not do them right?
