Wisdom For Each Day – September 21, 2014

From time to time someone writes me who was adopted as a child, and is now haunted by the idea that they had been rejected by both of their birth parents, and therefore they must have been unloved and unlovable.  Those feelings have oppressed them most of their lives.

What they have forgotten – and what I always try to point out to them – is that they weren’t unloved and unwanted by their adoptive parents – not at all.  That couple had a choice in the matter – and they deliberately chose to bring this child into their family.

When you accepted Christ, you were adopted into His family forever.

He chose us in him before the creation of the world…to be adopted as his sons through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will.

Ephesians 1:4-5
