Georgia Right to Life is surprisingly like the farmer in Jesus’ parable. Like him, we sow seeds of truth—God’s truth about His gift of life. In our case, it is His truth about the preciousness of physical life, while the parable is about eternal life.
Like the biblical farmer, we sow broadly, and our planting has similar results: Some seeds land on inhospitable ground and fail to grow to maturity. But other seeds fall on good soil. They grow well. They multiply into an abundant harvest.
We at Georgia Right to Life sow the message of the sanctity of life. We sow it in the fields of public opinion and in the fields of broken lives. We scatter our seed far and wide and then we cultivate it…and we pray.
In the short-term, we enjoy a bountiful harvest. A harvest of changed hearts and minds. A harvest of saved unborn lives, saved one at a time. A harvest of mothers spared damage and regret. It is demanding work that must be done day after day, every day. As we work, we put our trust in the Lord of the harvest.
Imagine holding in your hand, a single stalk of wheat. In your hand is the fruit of the harvest.
“To be honest, when I found out I was pregnant, I Googled ‘abortion’ and your site popped up. When I called the help-line, I was encouraged and realized that I was not alone. This help-line played a big role in me deciding to keep my baby. Thanks so much!”
Georgia Right to Life keeps planting the truth and cultivating it for the coming harvests. The ultimate harvest we all want is justice—justice restored to all persons, born and unborn, in our state and in our country.
And you and I can already see many signs of that future harvest sprouting. You can see more and more states, like Georgia, adopting Personhood as their pro-life message for the 21st Century. You can see more and more young people getting involved as pro-life apologists through our Campus Outreach. We trust you will see more and more abortion clinics closing and Planned Parenthoods going out of business as they lose state and federal tax dollars. We trust you will see more and more politicians closing the loophole of rape and incest in abortion laws.
For the coming harvests, the seeds of God’s truth are available, but the truth is not enough. The seeds of truth must be planted broadly, and the workers are few. We must continue to get the seeds into the needy fields of individual lives and of culture. So this is where you come in.
We need “seed” money to equip young people to winsomely advocate for Personhood on college campuses all over Georgia through our displays and our training.
We need “seed” money to develop and refine our websites so that we are the premier source of 21st Century pro-life educational and reference materials in Georgia.
We need “seed” money so that we can buy more billboard space to connect young women in unplanned pregnancies to the help they need.
We need “seed” money so that we will continue to be leaders in the Personhood movement that is starting to sweep the country.
Clearly, some of us are still going through tough times. But it is precisely at times like these that we need to till and to plant.
I am praying earnestly that this letter will generate much needed seed money. Can I count on your generous gift? Can you send a check for $15? Or, perhaps you could send $25, $50, or even $100. I’m also praying that some of you may consider a tax-deductible gift of $500 or $1,000.
We are preparing the soil, and we are ready to plant. Come, sow seeds with us.
Together for Life,
Daniel C. Becker
