It is a privilege for a husband and wife to be able to bear children. The decision on when to have children takes faith and is between the husband, wife, and the Lord. (2:25)

It is the crowning privilege of a husband and wife who are able to bear children to provide mortal bodies for these Spirit children of God. We declare that God’s commandment for His children to multiply and replenish the Earth remains in force. We go forward in faith, realizing the decision of how many children to have, and when to have them, is between a husband and wife and the Lord. My daughters recently referred me to a blog written by a Christian mother, not of our faith, with five children. She commented, “”Growing up in this culture, children rank way below college, below world travel for sure, below the ability to go out at night at your leisure.”” She then adds, “”Motherhood is not a hobby; you do not collect children because you find them cuter than stamps. It’s not something you if you can squeeze the time in, It is what God gave you time for.”” And Jesus took a child in His arms and said, ‘Whosoever shall receive one of such children in my name, receiveth me, and whosoever receiveth me, receiveth Him that sent me.’
