Have you ever caught yourself mentally questioning parents with big families? Or, are you the opposite, a parent with a big family who sometimes feels judged by others?
Before we judge, maybe it is time to see what the Bible says about families, and who we should trust when preparing to plan our own family.
Why do so many people today seem to look cock-eyed at parents who choose to have big families? According to Scripture, God views a big family as a parent’s blessing. Arguably, most parents stop having kids because they feel they can’t afford more.
Psalm 37:25 says, “Godly parents have never found their children begging bread.” In fact, the next passage in Psalm 37 says that these same parents are so financially well-off that they are generous and actually lend freely. And, that their children are blessed!
So it seems even a family’s financial security is tied more to its godliness than to its size.
