Lately, I’ve been investing a little bit of my time in thinking about life, purpose, the beauty of God and the gifts He has given to mankind as His beloved children.
I came up with the conclusion that we are pretty lucky and honoured to be counted worthy to be among those that experienced the gift of life and would experience the gift of death (Well, that is if we die before rapture takes place. He is coming like a thief in the night. 1 Thessalonians 5:2 “For you know very well that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night” NIV).
One of the commandments given to us by God is to be fruitful and multiply. Genesis 9:7 “As for you, be fruitful and increase in number; multiply on the earth and increase upon it.” (NIV) We’ve been blessed with the spirit of reproduction through the hands of God.
This blessing involves us raising godly offsprings who would be stewards for God on earth.
Godly families are at the heart of what God is doing on this earth, because it is in this context that children are loved, come to know God, and are trained in His ways.
Thus, God ordained the propagation of the human race through families to promote His purposes.
