With the reengaged debate over abortion due to the leak of the pending Supreme Court in Dobbs v. Jackson, we are reminded it is "Happy Mother's Day" and not "Happy You Murdered Your Unborn Baby Day!" Aborted babies do not rise up and call their mother blessed. Only the living can give her praise.
So, we who are living give thanks that our mothers did not kill us in the womb but submitted themselves to the created natural order in love and sacrifice. However, the landscape is drastically changing where instead of honoring life, motherhood, love, and sacrifice, we are becoming a society that honors death, unnatural identities, hatred, and selfishness. Proverbs 8:36 declares that all who hate wisdom love death.
