So now the big news is that Sarah Palin’s unwed daughter is pregnant. Is that the end of the world? No. Is it punishment? Well if it were I would love to be punished for my sins that way. A child is a gift, a life, a blessing. It is a gift given in spite of us, because we are loved. We are loved when we obey and we are loved when we sin. We are so loved that even in our own selfishness He still pours out goodness. So, yes the young Miss Palin is guilty of sin. Relations outside of man-woman marriage is sin. But there is forgiveness, and love for her. And even though she doesn’t deserve such a precious gift as her child in the womb, the Lord in His goodness is giving her one anyway, may she be faithful with the task she is now being called to. And may the Lord protect her and her soon to be husband, and may He surround them with love and may the American people give them respect and privacy.
And uh, none of us, no matter how good are deserving of a gift so precious as a child, that is grace.
