Happy Fathers Day to all the fathers out there. I was reading SLMNews blog today, a daily read for me, and Palmetto Patriot had a very insightful post on the need for more Southern children as demographics continue to turn against us. He could not be more right. Not only does the Bible encourage large families, but speaking as the father of 6 children, 3 boys and 3 girls, it is a huge blessing beyond description. Watching your children grow and even exceed your own abilities is exciting.
If you are happily married and God fearing I strongly encourage you to have a large family. You will be blessed for the rest of your life. Financial concerns is the first thing I always hear from people attacking big families. There is a large financial burden. My TV is far from the largest, vacations are smaller and practical, my vehicles are not brand new, and we don’t eat out every night. Now which one of those things would be more important that one of my children? Obviously, none of them.
