This reflection is taken from my book, Pro-Life Reflections for Every Day, which is available for purchase at: ProLifeReflectionsForEveryDay.org
“Whatever authorities exist have been instituted by God.” (Romans 13:1)
Reflection: Some people say that the solution to the abortion problem is to change people’s hearts. In fact, changing people’s hearts is the solution to every problem that the world faces.
But that doesn’t mean that we don’t have laws. The fact is that while there are people around whose hearts are not in the right place, there have to be laws to restrain their heartless activities.
Prayer: Father, I thank you today for law and for lawmakers. As you guide and convert our hearts, make them also obedient to authority, and make authority obedient to your law. Amen.
