It’s come to my attention, that yesterday, I failed to adequately rebut the pro-life side. They, who are always pro-life…of the unborn. Regardless of the circumstances, the health and well-being of the mother, or the wishes of the father. But, who’s to say that the innocent won’t become the next Mozart, Einstein, Whitman, Emerson, etc.? Are all abortions from the lower class or lower income families? Does that matter? Are those types less valuable than others? Less deserving of treatment as human beings? Are not we all the same?
Don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t do something. Dare to dream, dare to hope. dare to set ambitious goals; but while doing so, strive, sprint toward your goals, your hopes, your dreams. If you don’t achieve them, who will? You might get bogged down in the attempt, you might grow despondent, you might even fail …a few times. The important thing is to never give up.
I believe there are only three questions we’ll be asked at the end of our lives (or will ask ourselves, depending)
- Did we do our best to achieve our goals, reach ours hopes, and accomplish our dreams?
- Did we always treat others the way we would want to be treated?
- Did we love the Lord with all our heart, soul, mind, and understanding?
We are made to glorify God. We can do it as teachers, bosses, students, parents, husbands, wives, siblings, servants, writers, artists, engineers, in a myriad of ways each as unique as every one of us. Individuals with individual ideas on how best to glorify God. But, in the end, we need to look to ourselves, the state of our hearts, to see if our intentions were self-serving or God-serving.
Often, our dreams are for a better life. We hope for a better tomorrow. Yet, we work for today, the now.
