Don’t you see that children are God’s best gift? The fruit of the womb His generous legacy?
Psalm 127:3 (The Message Bible)
The KJV states it this way:
Lo, children are an heritage from the LORD, and the fruit of the womb is his reward.
Don’t we all seek God’s blessings on our life? How much more should we desire children, which are God’s best gift?
And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it…
This Genesis Charge has never been taken away by God. It is still in effect! If you simply take a tour of our country you will see miles and miles of vast, empty land. We have hardly filled the earth as of yet.
Marry and have children. Then find spouses for them so that you may have many grandchildren. Multiply! Do not dwindle away!
Jeremiah 29:6 (NLT)
And the LORD your God will make you abound in every work of your hand, in the fruit of your body…
And whosoever shall receive one such little child in my name receives me.
The Bible states on many occasions that children are a gift from God. When we openly receive them into our family, we receive Christ also.
Take heed that ye despise not one of these little ones; for I say unto you, that in heaven their angels do always behold the face of my Father which is in heaven.
Your wife shall be as a fruitful vine by the sides of your house: your children like olive plants round about your table.
Another blessing given by God, in the form of a fruitful wife who produces many children.
