Children- Blessing or Burden?
Voddie Baucham in Family Driven Faith writes, "we are anti-abortion, not pro-life". Children in this culture are viewed as a curse or a burden and not a blessing. We say that we are against abortion, but do we applaud the family who decides that children are a blessing and decides to have more children or do we just roll our eyes and say they must be out of their minds. Many people are just indifferent and stand in judgement of larger families. Larger families experience contempt from the world and from other well meaning Christians and family members who have had their views of children shaped by the worlds' views. Pregnancy should be joyfully embraced because ALL children are a blessing from the Lord! Motherhood is an awesome job and we should embrace it with a thankful heart.
