January is the anniversary of the Roe vs Wade decision and Sanctity of Human Life Sunday. Recently Care-Net, an organization that supports Pregnancy Resource Centers, coined the phrase “Pro Abundant Life. “ I love this word picture. In John 10:10, Christ says, “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it a abundantly.”
At His Love Family Resources we are Pro-Life but not just pro-baby life. Our desire is for the mother and father -to-be to have abundant life, the kind Jesus describes in John 10:10.
Here at His Love we believe that Pro-Abundant life means embracing marriage. It’s been proven statistically that children do best in life when they are raised in a home with two parents who support each other and their children. Seems like God knew what he was doing when he designed family.
Pro- Abundant life means embracing the whole family: Dad, Mom, and children. That’s why we work so hard to help give parents emotional, physical, and spiritual support. If a mother makes a decision to give birth to a child, but the father of the child is not willing to be involved, she needs our support and the support of the bigger community. If we want her to choose life, we must help her with her needs such as: finding a home, transportation, a job, and childcare. Caring for a child is a huge job. She definitely needs help.
We are Pro-Abundant Life! Jesus came that we might have life to the full! He wants us to share that life with others.
