A national television audience Saturday watched running back J. K. Dobbins score four touchdowns to help No. 1 Ohio State crush Michigan, but it also learned how Dobbins’ mother nearly aborted him before changing her mind.
The junior rushed 31 times for 211 yards in the Buckeyes’ 56-27 win over their archrival and currently ranks fourth among all major college football players with 1,657 rushing yards, the NCAA notes.

WHAT DO YOU THINK?- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him.

If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
