“God actually gets credit for the first “adoption program.” Our holy God, the Creator of all mankind, looked at those whom He created (us!) and saw that we were fatherless. To adopt us brought no surprises: He knew that we were murderers, gluttons, and idolaters. . .
Our hope is that, as we adopt in 2012, we will always be motivated by the sacrifice that was made on our behalf: We were adopted by the Holy Creator, and we have the tremendous privilege of calling Him, “Abba, Father.” And that is very cool.”
