This reflection is taken from my book Pro-Life Reflections for Every Day, which is available for purchase at: ProLifeReflectionsForEveryDay.org
“None of us lives for himself, and none of us dies for himself. If we live, we live for the Lord, and if we die, we die for the Lord. Therefore, if we live or die, we are the Lord’s” (Rom. 14:7-8).
Reflection: There are two basic truths that each person has to admit in this life: 1. There is a God. 2. It isn’t me. To understand these lessons is to understand why evils like contraception, abortion, and euthanasia are wrong. Only God has absolute dominion over human life and over its coming and going.
Prayer: In life and death, O Lord, abide with me. I am yours. Amen.
