As I looked around at this particular congregation, I wondered whether there may be that "select few" who would offer encouragement - beginning with the leadership - to a growing family such as this, or if most of them - like the super-majority of society - have been naysayers, making "jokes" about fertility and pressuring young families such as these to stop having children.
As a family, we have observed and concluded that many Christians are admittedly Pro-Life, as long as parents adhere to a 2.5-child family and not one more.
If you consider children an unworthy burden, I urge you to challenge your view to come in line with God's Word... learn of His position on children.
If you see a young family joyfully embracing the blessing of fruitfulness, encourage them, for the Scripture says:
"Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward."
Let us embrace a Whole-Life stance and consider that to be the biblical "Pro-Life" approach.
~All children are a blessing from God.
~We are instructed to approach our Saviour as a child.
Let's not model for them an unbiblical worldview that leads them to believe that they're taking up too much space, using too many resources, or will demonstrate responsibility by not having too many children of their own when they are married adults.
