There has been a great deal of controversy in America over the question of when life begins ever since the Roe v Wade decision by the Supreme Court which legalized abortion in the U.S. For some it doesn’t matter when life begins at all, they just want the freedom to abort if they so choose. Others seek to protect the unborn from the point of conception.
We are not here to argue party politics or government policy, but we are interested in what God has revealed to us in the Bible. What does He say? Why does it matter?
When does life begin?
To answer the question, “Does it matter when life begins?”, we must first know when life begins. The Bible answer is that life begins at conception, in the womb of the mother before the child is ever born.
God bless all our “moms” on this Mother’s Day!
Here are a few passages from the Bible dealing with the concept of motherhood. They remind us that children are a gift from God; they teach us of the importance of our mothers and the honor they deserve.
Spend some time reading, meditating and praying on these things that they might fill your heart and transform your life, today!
Thank you, God, for three mothers who mean so much to me; for my precious mom who is so kind and helpful to everyone; for my beloved wife, the mother of our children, who loves each of us with all her heart; and for my dear mother-in-law who gave me my wife and is always there for us.
