Children are a heritage from the Lord,
offspring a reward from him. – Ps 127:3
The view that we are blessed if we can afford children is completely opposite of the biblical view that children ARE blessing. Children don’t drain our wealth, children ARE our wealth! Don’t believe me? Read the Old Testament. In the Old Testament, offspring was the highest form of blessing God bestowed on the nations He blessed. They were greatly desired and valued because they were the future.
