Friends, it is time to step it up.
Something has weighed heavily on my heart. It concerns LIFE . . . and LIFE SUPPORT.
There is no doubt that Care Net has always been about LIFE. Through our Pregnancy Decision Line and our pregnancy centers, we encourage those considering abortion to choose life.
Because of your prayers and generous giving, we are about the business of saving the lives of unborn children.
But if we are to follow Christ’s example, I believe we must take our passion even a step farther. We must partner together to provide critical LIFE SUPPORT—ensuring future of the child, the mother, and the father through a full system of support when they make a decision for life.
Consider the story of the Good Samaritan (Luke 10:25-37). Jesus told how a man was beaten and left for dead on the side of the road. A Samaritan saved his life by rescuing him and dressing his wounds. But he didn’t stop there.
According to Scripture the Samaritan took the wounded man to a nearby inn and paid for his continued care until he could stand on his own two feet. The Samaritan had compassion on someone who was extremely vulnerable, and he had the power to make both an immediate and long-term difference.
I think God is calling friends like you to not only save lives, but offer life support to mothers and fathers who choose life through the counseling and resources of our pregnancy centers across the country.
I’ll share more on this blog and elsewhere in the upcoming months. But please know that right now, your gift will help save the lives of unborn children and offer life support to strengthen fledgling families in critical condition.
Thank you in advance for making it your mission to save lives and give life support. I hope to hear from you soon, and may God bless you.
