So how is it that we have come to the point that we believe debt,material things,worldly entertainment,careers are all wonderful and children are a nuisance that should be carefully calculated? This concept is totally contrary to what the Bible teaches. I hate to say it but this attitude is as prevalent in the church as it is in the world. It is a selfish mindset that focuses on self and what is the easiest most convenient for *me*.
We have been tricked into thinking that a woman's place is in the workforce and children are a burden. The Bible for me is the ultimate decider on this subject and it is full of references to the fact that children are indeed a **BLESSING** and a **REWARD**. The Word says that children will make us **HAPPY**....that is if you have a quiver **FULL** of them. (Im pretty sure thats more than 2.5).
It is so sad to see Gods blessing devalued into a calculated afterthought....like after we have 2 or 3 cars or after we have alot of clothes. After our insurance kicks in. After we go on a fancy vacation. After I go to college and establish my career. Who blocks the blessings of God? Who wants to wait for His rewards?
What would happen if the church caught a passion for bearing Godly seed?
