A Segway Tour from the Sidewalk to the Sin Sick World


There’s a video of a man rolling through a crowded park on a Segway. His mission is to comment on everything he sees as an unbelievable phenomenon. Whether it’s a dog pooping, a flip phone or the feel of a homeless man’s dreadlocks, the Segway man  enthusiastically draws attention to it by exclaiming, ”Would you look at that? Just look at that!”

If you’d like to see the video, click on this link:  Look At This On a Segway – YouTube. It’s really funny and after seeing it, you may tend to look at everyday life with a different set of lens. 🙂

Joking aside, wouldn’t it be nice if we could observe God’s handiwork with the unabashed appreciation and wonder it deserves? I have an idea. Amazing moments are best when shared. So, let’s you and I board our imaginary Segways and take an imaginary guided observation tour. Let’s get rolling!

Can you believe all there is to see? The Rocky Mountains in the West and the Smoky Mountains in the East. The wheat fields in Kansas and the Blue Bonnets  in Texas. The colorful birds in Hawaii and the ice glaciers in Alaska.  

One day we ask our guide, “Sir, what do you consider the #1 greatest accomplishment in all of creation? Will you show us?”

He smiles, is quiet for a moment as he blinks away a tear. “Of course I’ll show you. I’m glad you’re enjoying the beauty of creation. But you live in  a sin sick world. It’s not what it was in the beginning. Therefore, the place we’re going is not always a happy place.  And yet, you need to see this place.”

When our guide leads us into a dark room, we strain to adjust our eyes. A shadowy image appears before us, moving slowly.

“What is it?” We whisper as if we stand on sacred ground.

“Look closely.”

At that moment, the image changes its position. We can hardly believe it. A tiny body, ten fingers, ten toes and a beating heart.

Together, we cry out. “It’s a baby!”

“You’re inside a mother’s womb and yes, you stand on sacred ground. And the child, like all other children, is the greatest creative masterpiece of all time.”

“Then this is a happy place, isn’t it? How could it not be?”

“Because the plan is for the enemy to invade this place and end the child’s life before she has a chance to see the world as you see it.”

“But why? Can’t someone stop this evil thing from happening?”

“Human beings were created with free will, which is a precious thing. But when the free will is abused, it affets the innocent, as well as the guilty. As I said, you live in a sin-sick world.”

By now, we’re crying, unable to speak.

“Don’t despair for the child. I will take her with me. And years from now, when you come home, you’ll meet her. Meanwhile, you must pray and do everything you can to stop this madness.”

The guide extends his nail-scarred hands to embrace us. “Because of you and millions like you, the babies will not have died in vain. I will not have died in vain.”

Sobered, we leave the room and board our rolling machines to continue our tour. But we’ll never be the same. We now have a mission. We must pray for ways to defend the unborn. And we must share God’s love and forgiveness to all who’ve been affected by this holocaust. Perhaps, as we hold up the cross for our sin sick world to see, people will respond and in turn say to others, “Would you look at that? Just look at that!”

Tuesday, January 22, will mark 40 years since the Supreme Court of the United States handed down its 7-2 decision in the Roe v. Wade case . . . Since that fateful day, over 54 million babies in the U.S. have been legally murdered through surgical abortions . . . .  answersingenesis.org  Tim Chaffey


Every 27 seconds, a baby is killed by abortion.

                                As difficult as it is, we must look at the facts and decide what we can do to make a difference. Any ideas?

    Liz, what a wonderful way to bring this subject / tour to us. This is real! I could hardly read it through tears. The world needs to wake-up. Thank you; spread The WORD! a.m.

    • Thanks, Amelia for your comment. Our hearts are truly broken over this atrocity. How could mankind ever have let this happen? It seems impossible to turn it around, but then again, God is a God of the impossible! Love you, Liz

  2. I heard that stat yesterday, Liz. So sad. Just think of all the talent that we’ll never know. Thanks for the stirring post. This needs to stop.

    We are forever grateful for our two children’s mothers who had the courage to have their babies and give them to strangers. We have been blessed beyond anything we could have asked or imagined! That is what God has promised us!!! Harriett

    • That is so neat, Harriet. I had forgotten your children were adopted. God bless you and all who have filled the gap and made a life for so many. And thanks for the mothers who gave them life, twice.
