You proclaim human life sacred and precious but from abortion parlors to street violence, Americans are killing Americans at an alarming pace. It pains You when we treat so life callously.
It is heart breaking when that most responsible claim it’s perfectly legitimate for a mother to kill her unborn child. Or, the ludicrous claim…“The guns did it.” The cause of this horrific carnage is the wickedness in our hearts unbounded by moral guidelines. When the legitimacy of Godly standards is mocked and the Bible is removed from public view, the results are as predictable as the sunrise. People’s evil nature reigns.
Neither fewer guns nor more laws will heal our hardened hearts. Only Your love will restore our humanity. Soften my heart. Help me love others as You love me.
Scripture: “The human heart is the most deceitful of all things, and desperately wicked. Who really knows how bad it is?” Jeremiah 17:9
