Reasons to Adopt

Suzanne Mayernick recently posted these stats that made me think how important it is for Christians to adopt:  (as well as show love in other ways.)

  • The vast majority of people who become Christians do so while still children, usually before the age of 14
  • There are 2,000 Bible passages that declare our Father's love for the impoverished and their children and that urge us, YOU AND ME, to defend their cause
  • If a person hasn't accepted Christ as a youth, the probability he or she will EVER know Jesus is only 23%
  • The earth can produce enough food for every man, woman, and child to have 2,270 calories per day-MORE THAN ANY OF US REALLY NEED? (so while God has done His part in creating a world capable of providing what we need, we have NOT done our part in the stewardship of it)

wow...the stat of how much calories for each person the earth produces each day shocked me...especially knowing how many people are dying everyday due to no food!
