Remember that old playground song: "Bob and Sally / Sitting in a tree, / K-I-S-S-I-N-G. / First comes love, / Then comes marriage, / Then comes baby / In a baby carriage."
Even though there is a bit more involved than kissing, there are still lots of new babies in carriages every single day. In fact, worldwide, four babies are born every second. It's extremely humbling to think about God using us to give birth, adopt or foster other human beings, while also helping form them into adults. In a sense, God entrusts us with the ability to shape our future through parenting.
With such an awesome responsibility in front of us, we would do ourselves a huge favor by preparing ahead of time for this daunting, yet joyful task. And as people prepare themselves to take on the role of parenting, they can be motivated by many great reasons to be a parent, but there can also be some wrong motivations to have children. And those negative motivations are what I want to bring to light. more >>
