What difference does it make?
This was the response Hillary spat when asked about the reason for an attack on an American Consulate in Benghazi. When she callously responded in this manner, Republicans pounced. And rightfully so. Unfortunately, the lesser informed probably still Benghazi’s that specialty ice cream producer charging exorbitant prices for their tantalizing wares. Our Country lost four American public servants and half the Country cares more about a government subsidized cell phone plan.
But, what difference does it make?
Lifesite News shared a story this week which literally turned my stomach.
Recently, Life Site News brought to light a disturbing practice implemented by an energy plant in Oregon. The Covanta Waste-to-Energy Facility accepted medical waste containing the remains of aborted babies to aid in generating electricity. After receiving national attention, Marion County Board Commissioner Janet Carlson said,
“We did not know this practice was occurring until today. We are taking immediate action and initiating discussions with Covanta Marion to make certain that this type of medical waste is not accepted in the future.”
Bu what difference does it make?
The Supreme Court ruled abortion legal 41 years ago. Since then, over 53 million babies have been discarded as medical waste In the wake of the Roe V. Wade decision. With sharp instruments and harsh chemicals, doctors rip the most innocent of life from the womb. Why not recycle human tissue into electricity? What difference does it make?
Our own President champions abortion, not wanting his own daughters to be one day “punished” by an unwanted baby. He even supports the killing of an infant born alive in a botched abortion. But really, what difference does it make?
Why do Americans shake their heads in disbelief when kids kill other kids over a pair of tennis shoes or a boy stabs to death a beautiful young lady for declining his invitation to prom? From the conception of life, our culture breeds a society of death. Then, as the child grows, public schools propagate the lie that humanity exists only because of accidental processes occurring over millions of years. For 12 years, students are taught they’re nothing more than glorified apes. Why should they be expected to act any different than warring and unpredictable animals? But what difference does it make?
It makes much difference to God.
Psalm 139 shares,
“For you created my inmost being;
you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.
15 My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. 16 Your eyes saw my unformed body;
all the days ordained for me were written in your book
before one of them came to be…”
The God of the universe knits people together in their mothers’ wombs, not as byproducts of evolutionary processes but as masterpieces with true purpose….a purpose far greater than being tossed into a medical waste heap. When people see each other as God sees them, America can expect to see a decline in violence. The Country can expect to see a spike in the respect of life from the cradle to the grave. What difference does it make?
A whole heckuva lot to a Holy God.
