Except the Lord build the house, they labor in vain that build it: except the Lord keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain.
It is vain for you to rise up early, to sit up late, to eat the bread of sorrows: for so he giveth his beloved sleep.
Lo, Children are an heritage of the Lord: and the fruit of the womb is his reward.
As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man; so are children of the youth.
Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them: they shall not be ashamed, but they shall speak with the enemies in the gate.
I think that it is so sad, that in so many churches today that people seem to think children are an inconvience. I believe that if more Christians would start leaving their family size to the Lord, that we could have such an influence on America and the world. We as mothers have the privilege to possibly be raising pastors, and missionaries, and future mothers. What a great ministry. How exciting!
