§ What is Pro-Life Unity?

To achieve Pro-Life Unity we will establish standards that we all agree upon, and efforts that we all regularly participate in. By working together we can challenge the culture of death and the apathy which is pervasive in our society.

Psalm 98:4   Thought/Prayer:  Word in a Word.  Topics:  2 at end.

“Make a joyful noise to the LORD, all the earth: make a loud noise, and rejoice, and sing praise.”  WBS (Read this scripture and more at http://prayerpivot.com)

I’m sure many people have noticed the interesting little word at the beginning of the word “grinch.”  It’s:  “grin.”  Did Dr. Seuss plan it this way when he wrote How The Grinch Stole Christmas?  Some people may know the answer to this, but we don’t need it, really.  It’s just there to see:  The word grin is in the word “Grinch.” 

The quizzical little character The Grinch is bound and determined to stop Christmas.  The point is, he doesn’t understand about it.  So he is very “grinchy” and wants to end it so no one has any Christmas.  (In fact, according to Merriam Webster online, the word grinch was coined from this character, meaning one who loves to kill others’ joy.)

But his plans don’t work out, as the people Whoville demonstrate that more than presents (or lack thereof, Grinch-inflicted) is involved in Christmas.  It goes on in spirit.

Can we envision the Grinch grinning at this point?  Maybe he makes a “joyful noise” – although this story is not about scripture verses or the Lord.  But maybe if we can see the grin in grinch, we can find this ourselves when needed.  Maybe, when we are feeling stingy and upset over something others are enjoying, we can see a little grin start around the corners of our mouth, just a little beginning to regaining our proper and respectful composure and keeping it where is should be:  happy and joyful for others.

Lord, we all have times when we are chary of others’ happiness.  But help us to see true meaning in the joys of others, and help us to find it for ourselves – Your joy, Lord, not just that of a storybook character.  Help us to grin instead of grousing and grinching.  A smile might mean just something to someone in need – as it comes to them in the form of assistance of some type.

Topics:  Pray for a positive attitude and that it will be effective when we see a need that we can help fill.
