TOPIC: THAT CHILD IS NOT A MISTAKE
“I have become estranged from my brothers, and an alien to my mother’s sons”- Psalm 69:8, (KJV)
POINTS OF EMPHASIS
How easy most Christians want to be like the great King David today. In fact God said he is a man after His heart. But let’s look at his background.
It is interesting how David seems to talk about two groups of children. He was estranged from his brothers (Jesse’s family) and an alien to his mother’s children. It implies both sets of children rejected David supporting the idea that his mother was either a prostitute (with other children) or possibly another married woman whose husband rejected David, forcing Jesse to look after his illegitimate son.
According to Strong’s dictionary, the Hebrew word for estranged “zur” means to “turn one aside from lodging” and can also refer to a person who has come from “adultery – to come from another man” or another woman. In fact, the word is rooted in the Hebrew word “mamzer” which means bastard or illegitimate.
Zur intimates David was not included in regular family activities such as meals. In fact this may be what verse 21 suggests when David says they gave me “gall for food” and “vinegar to drink.” It appears the brothers made David’s life miserable.
Though despised and rejected by his family and humiliated by those in his home town, God saw David’s heart and how he responded to the rejection and the ugliness that filled his childhood and chose this boy as the next king of Israel. We gain a keen insight in the redemptive nature of God, who will use anyone despite their background and heritage as long as they have a heart for God.
That child you are about to abort thinking is a mistake is never a mistake. Do not take the life you cannot give. God has a better plan for that child. Give him an opportunity to live.
And you that think that child you gave birth to is a mistake, hence you maltreat him/her, remember that child did not bring himself/herself to this world but through you.
Take good care of him/her. You might have been caught with pregnancy in that sin of fornication/adultery. Give that child a good life to live. Accept full responsibility of parenthood over him/her. He/she has a bright future God has destined him/her to fulfill.
Should I condemn a life I can’t give?
Father give reasons to live unto those who taught the world is not worth living in Jesus name
I shall condemn no child henceforth.
