This reflection is taken from my book, Pro-Life Reflections for Every Day, which is available for purchase at: ProLifeReflectionsForEveryDay.org
“God greatly increased the number of his people and made them too strong for their foes” (Psalm 105:24).
Reflection: Dr. Joseph Chamie, Director of the Population Division at the United Nations, has said, “A growing number of countries view their low birth rates with the resulting population decline and ageing to be a serious crisis, jeopardizing the basic foundations of the nation and threatening its survival.” Keep this in mind the next time someone talks to you about over-population.
Prayer: Lord, continue to make your people fruitful. Bless all nations with the gift of life and the joy of welcoming it. Amen.
