I am not a mom of lots of kids (although some think three should be a family limit), but I know a few and do you know that they receive been most criticized by their church family: snide comments, chuckles and down right rude comments! I've heard Christian bash other Christians because of their choice to have a large family. Things like, "Don't they know what causes that?!?" or "Someone needs to get that man a box of condoms!"
How is it that Christians are so quick to rejoice when a man who's been unemployed for 6 months gets a job, but we judge or make fun of a family wanting more kids than what is culturally acceptable.
Children are a blessing, a gift and have more eternal weight and value than any $20,000 raise someone might receive!
We must check the motives of our heart and be very careful how we poke fun of people in our Church family who do things different than ourselves. It's a slippery slope of dissension in the body of Christ!
