Also you don't really choose your children, you just kind of get stuck with whatever you get. So, how do you know that there aren't other children out in the world more worthy of your care than the ones that you just happen to share DNA with? Doesn't seem fair to me. (In case you can't tell, I'm being more than a little tongue-in-cheek with these responses. No offense is intended.)

As Christians we are actually required to be biased, because GOD Himself is biased (Malachi 1:2-3; Exodus 33:19; Romans 9:18). It's not fair, but then again was it fair that Jesus Christ had to suffer and die for the rest of us when He never did anything wrong? But I digress, because I don't think we, as sinful human beings, want to travel too far down that road of fair vs. unfair when it comes to GOD. Because if we got what was fair, then we would all be in Hell right now.
No offense taken Nate. I always appreciate your replies.
