Have you ever considered that the reason that the Children of Israel struck fear into the Pharoah's heart was because they had many children? "And the children of Israel were fruitful, and increased abundantly, and multiplied, and waxed exceeding mighty; and the land was filled with them. Now there arose up a new king over Egypt, which knew not Joseph. And he said unto his people, Behold, the people of the children of Israel are more and mightier than we: Come on, let us deal wisely with them; lest they multiply, and it come to pass, that, when there falleth out any war, they join also unto our enemies, and fight against us, and so get them up out of the land." Exodus 1:7-10
If this was the case then imagine what would happen if Christians would start having more children. How exciting would it be if we could "scare" the word by raising multitudes of godly children. We need to view children as a blessing, rather than a commodity we embrace only when it is convenient! Think about it.
