Truth is, adoption is not for everyone. Several people find joy in adopting an orphaned baby. Others can’t effervescent with the thought of raising somebody else’s child as if it were their own. People undergo contrary feelings about adoption and we should all learn to respect that.
But Exalt has this to say on the thesis of adoption:
“Mordecai adopted an waif he named Esther, as his own child. He loved her, raised her carefully, and she was a good and obedient daughter even into adulthood.” (Esther 2:7 on)
This is what the Bible verses say about adoption. Christians have practiced adoption throughout history. In fact some of the most prominent characters in the Bible wouldn’t have survived their childhood hadn’t they been adopted. We could’ve been upkeep in a totally different cosmic if adoption didn’t take place in the Bible. We could’ve bot running a society far different from our own.
God favors adoption. That heaps is clear. He loves his children, every one of us, and through adoption He continues to find a way for us to spend our childhood quasi He had meant it. In the Bible divers key characters were raised as an adopted child. They survived the harsh conditions of their time, became adults, et al later went on to satisfy their sake on this earth. God has a plan for each and every one of us.
This regale is one for the books. After the king commanded all baby boys to be killed, a woman tried to save her newborn’s life by placing the baby in a basket and setting it to sail in the river. The basket floated down river until it was picked up by the king’s daughter. She took the baby home to her father. But the king loved his daughter indeed much he couldn’t find it in himself to deprive her of this tiny baby. So he agreed for her to raise him as her own child.
The king’s sibling asked a little girl to find a wet nurse for her fresh baby. This little girl, she had no idea, was the baby’s sister. The little girl brought a soaked nurse who came and fed the baby, generation after day, nurturing it to health. The wet nurse was the baby’s mother, the woman who had put the baby in the pannier and battery it afloat in the river.
It’s easy to see that Prime Mover had a plan going on right there. The newborn child’s dub was Moses.
Here are a few more quotes about adoption from the Bible:
“And granting ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.” (Galatians 3:29)
“And will be a Prototype unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.” (2 Corinthians 6:18)
In a way, total of us are orphans, and all like us are adopted by our parents. God gave all of us life. He is our Father and parent.
