Children or Debt: Which would you prefer?

"The Bible calls debt a curse and children a blessing;

but in our culture, we apply for a curse and reject blessings.

Something is wrong with this picture."

~Doug Phillips

  2. Thanks for visiting Mary Anne! Your family is beautiful as well! Hoping for any girls?

  3. I like this quote. It is a terrible tragedy in our culture that children are viewed in this way. They are quite literally our future and birth rates even among Christians are dropping because of the way we think about children. The Bible says that blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them (children) and I firmly believe it. It may be a challenge, but it is so rewarding, and it also allows opportunity for us to raise our children to know Christ.
    Anyway, thanks for the quote - I haven't heard it before, but I'm going to hold onto it.
