“Are you going to have more?!” “You’re done right?!” “You know what causes that right?” These are just some of the annoying questions people ask in regards to having babies. What is wrong with our world?! We can’t have too much money, vacations, vehicles, jewelry, clothing etc. but we can have too many babies? Too many precious, eternal beings?
I don’t so much have a problem with the world responding this way to women having babies, it’s when the church sounds like the world that my heart is sad.
What does God say about babies: “Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward.” Psalm 127:3
Seems pretty straight-forward to me. They are a heritage and reward from Him. Other translations say: inheritance, blessing and gift. Since when do Christians not want an inheritance from the Lord? When was the last time you said to the Lord: “Please Lord! No more blessings! No more gifts!”? But that’s what the world is trying to convince the church of and sadly it’s succeeding.
Here is a video of me singing to my sweet baby Noah. A baby the world told me I shouldn’t have! Don’t listen to the world, listen to the Word. Sing to your babies and remind yourself that you get to be the one that will hold their hand and love on them your whole life.
