Children are a blessing

Throughout the Bible we see how God blesses those who are most faithful to Him. The blessings that He provides are children. When He told Abraham to look up at the stars, He was blessing him. When Hannah prayed He blessed her with a child. We constantly see how God blesses His people...... with children. God describes children as a blessing and a reward. However these days children are not viewed as a blessing. We see them as little noisy, naughty, expenses that keep us from doing what we really want to do. People limit the number of "blessings" because they only think about their cost, whether that be time or money. People have their two children and say "I'm done" like they finished a chore. Is that what children are, a chore? No, they are a blessing. God loves children, and when He gives you one He is trusting you with one of His precious possessions. God has given me my two blessing, for now, and I am going to do my best to care for them as blessings and not chores.......
