WALKING WITH GOD—Children
God opened Rachel’s womb in (Gen. 30:22). In this verse, I thought about what it meant to have children.
Reproduction is a way of God’s plan to be fruitful on earth. God proposed an increasing number of people on the earth, “God blessed them and said to them, ‘Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it…” (NIV, Gen. 1:27).
Also, God regards children as heritage and a part of the genealogy of Blessings, “Children are a heritage from the LORD, offspring a reward from him” (Psalm 127:3). As inheritors, children should be educated, disciplined, cared, and protected by parents so that they will be able to pass on God’s precious heritage to the next generation.
