I just read a good article on the website CMOMB–Christian moms of many blessings. It was entitled "Why Do I Have All These Kids?" and written by Beth Jones, founder of Quiverfull Digest.
She was responding to one of the excuses that many use for not having more children–that they can’t handle anymore, are too stressed out, etc. Here is what she said,
"Are the babies God has given me really the source of the stress I may be feeling – or is it my flesh – selfishness and lack of spiritual disciplines that are the real reasons I’m tired, stressed-out, etc. Would having fewer children really mean I’d have my act together, have more money, be full of energy, do more for the kingdom, etc.?"
Good questions to ask ourselves, huh? I
And a great reminder, so thanks!
