There’s constant debate about when life begins. Does it begin at the time when the egg and sperm meet, before the child is born, or after the child is born? As Christians, we know that life is a precious gift from God. There’s something significant about the period of time when no one can tell that a woman is pregnant. Only God knows this tiny little human He has breathed life into even exists. When that mom goes in for her first doctor’s appointment, it’s all about the heartbeat. Hearing a baby’s heartbeat for the first time is one of the most significant moments in the life of an expectant mom.
God’s desire is that every life would be treasured, even those who can’t speak for themselves. Believers should stand up against the brokenness in our world. Psalm 10 gives us direction on how we should respond to this significant call on our lives.
