One of the most profound experiences in my legal career involved the adoption of a baby girl with significant health problems and an expected life span of less than a year. In a world where most adoptive parents want a “perfect” baby, my clients wanted this “flawed” baby. It moved my soul in a way no other adoption had because I saw in them—God’s love for me—and—His love for the entire human race.

We are flawed, yet God enabled us to be adopted by Him through the death of His only Son.

Furthermore, He doesn’t abandon us because we struggle with the earthly temptations which inhabit our fleshly and dying bodies. He gives us His Spirit to lead and comfort us. The Bible says: “But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law, To redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons. And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father.” (Galatians‬ ‭4:4-6‬)

 “Abba Father” is a term of endearment, like “Daddy, please help me.”

Although we are ALL “flawed” we are too precious for God to stop loving us. I saw God’s love through my clients’ love for this precious child. I want others to see this love in me. Loving others is a profound way to experience God’s love.
