Puritan Board Freshman
The Lord has blessed us with 3 beautiful children, my oldest daughter is 9, my son is 6, and my youngest daughter is 2.
It's not how big the jar is, but whether or not its filled with the fulness of God.How full your quiver is is really a relative question. The Lord gives some people bigger quivers than others. Someone with six children is not less blessed than I am with eleven. That's the wrong way to look at it. Sure, eleven children are all a blessing from God. But those with fewer children are not less blessed for having fewer children. You might say that the blessings are more concentrated.
What I don't like is someone saying to God, "No thanks, we don't want any more." That doesn't sit right with me.
Yes, yes, yes.It's not how big the jar is, but whether or not its filled with the fulness of God.
One jar of baby food - 99 centsPS - as I write, Anneliese has just thrown up all over my wife and is running a bit of a fever - I really hope it's the teething, she's got three coming in at once. Must go...
Very kind of you Colleen. Thank you.Max, I would say you have a full quiver in that you have what the Lord has given, even though the babe was taken also by Him (eventually they all are). We still count the child that we lost as well. As for your niece and nephew, they are in the quiver of their parents. You however can act as covenanted family in assisting in their spiritual growth...that is the greatest gift you can give them. You are quite generous in leaving them as your heirs, but the spiritual is what will make arrows strong and straight.
