Reflection on Psalm 139
Rabbi Loren Jacobs' message, based on Psalm 139, makes the case for the sanctity of all human life, including unborn children. We must know that we are never alone. God was with each one of us from our very beginning, at the moment of our creation and before, and He will be with us at our end and beyond! God Himself is very much involved in our life! Read this message and be inspired.
