“Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be courageous; be strong.” – 1 Corinthians 16:13
Last week at the White House, President Biden hosted and honored the Kansas City Chiefs for their victory over the Philadelphia Eagles in Super Bowl VLII. One of the players, the team’s kicker, Harrison Butker, decided to make the most of the moment and send a strong message to the President and to the rest of the Biden White House.
Butker who along with the rest of his teammates stood behind the President, wore two very important things that sent a clear pro-life message. He wore a tie that read, “Vulnerari Praesidio” which is Latin, and is translated as, “Protect the most vulnerable.”
He also wore a gold pin on the outside of his suit jacket that is identical to the exact size and shape of a ten-week-old pre-born baby’s feet. After his visit to the White House, Butker released a statement saying he wanted to use the opportunity to send a powerful message to, “the most pro-abortion administration in our nation’s history.”
He also said in the statement, “I want to give the most vulnerable, the unborn, a voice at a place where every effort has been made to allow and normalize the tragic termination of their lives.” What an awesome moment this was to see Butker be given such an influential platform from the Lord, and for him to seize that opportunity to not only celebrate being a champion on the football field but to also be a champion for human life.
May this serve as an encouraging reminder that the Lord has given us all a sphere of influence and that we are always to use whatever platform we have been given for the glory of God.
LET US PRAY…
Father, we praise You, for the courageous and strong stand for human life that Harrison Butker took at the White House. Lord, help us to use whatever platform we have been given to influence our world for You. Father, may we never overlook an opportunity to influence our culture for You no matter how small it might be. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
