The Left-handed Gene!

Left-handed gene

After studying the DNA of 400,000 people, research scientists in Britain claim to have found the human gene that is linked to left-handedness.  (photo)

Studies indicate that about 10% of the human population is left-handed, and the research scientists even suggest that left-handed people may have better verbal skills than right-handed people, and that they may even be better at sports.

The article, featured in CNN Health, also said that left-handed people may be more susceptible to schizophrenia, while right-handed people may be more susceptible to Parkinson’s disease.

Indeed, these are interesting findings; but wouldn’t it be amazing if we could check a person’s DNA and find out whether someone will get saved or not!  This would make soul-winning a simple task!  But, of course, there is no human gene that can indicate this.  Only God knows who will be saved and who will not.

Our job is not to check a person’s DNA to see if they will be saved, but to share Christ with them, and pray for them, and encourage them to be saved.  That is what God asks of us.

Act 1:8 “But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.”
