Adoption is a gift

Just as salvation is a gift in many ways adoption is a gift. They did not pay us to adopt them. They did not give us gifts. We gave them the gift of adoption and being part of a family.

He came to us with nothing except himself. When the adoption was final and we were taking the children, we gave him the clothing to wear. Just like us coming to God. Our righteousness is as filthy rags. We gave him new clothing to wear. God also clothes us in his righteousness.

Adoption is costly. We didn't keep careful records of the cost because honestly it would be more than we want to know. Adoption does cost. I will say that if God calls you to adopt he will provide the funds for it. At the same time the cost for God to adopt us was the death of his son, in our place.
