What Mothers Always Knew

in
Psalm 8:2
“Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings hast thou ordained strength because of thine enemies, that thou mightest still the enemy and the avenger.”

You wouldn’t guess that a 36-hour-old infant would be able to teach grown scientists about the Creator – especially by making faces. But that is exactly what has happened! The Bible teaches that each of us is an individual, made by God, and known to Him even before we are born. However, those who have tried to promote the idea of chance and natural law have portrayed the newborn as a blank slate upon which What Mothers Knewexperience writes. To the humanist mindset there is no such thing as normal human expressions like a smile – everything is learned.
 
But now researchers, studying 36-hour-old babies, have learned differently. They now confirm that smiling is a natural, human reaction – something that babies do even before they are born. Babies also recognize human faces and can tell the difference between human expressions. Babies also connect expressions they see with their own expressions. Even the newborn in a crib is not kicking and crying without meaning. What’s more, scientists have confirmed one other thing that mothers have always known – babies really enjoy those silly faces and funny sounds we use to get them to laugh.

The Bible clearly offers a better view than modern humanistic evolution when it defines each human being, from before birth, as a unique individual, made by a Creator Who loves us and seeks our love.

Prayer: 
Heavenly Father, I thank You that You have made me and that You assure me that You love me and seek my love. Help me to believe Your promises to me and to show my love for You in everything I do. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
