Children are a blessing. That is clear throughout scripture. One of the clearest statements is in Psalms.
(Psalms 127:4-5 KJV) As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man; so are children of the youth. Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them: they shall not be ashamed, but they shall speak with the enemies in the gate.This goes against our family planning, two child mentality. The only place where the benefit of children is in doubt is in the last days. Jesus spoke about this.
(Luke 23:29 KJV) For, behold, the days are coming, in the which they shall say, Blessed are the barren, and the wombs that never bare, and the paps which never gave suck.I think the point Solomon is making is that the “barren” (6115) “womb” (7358) is not a desirable condition. The married couple that has no children will always be reflecting the previous verse that says, “not enough.”
So? You may be unmarried. You may be childless for reasons beyond your control. There may be other issues. But there is something about life that says we are the losers if we do not have children. If you are choosing that condition because you want to advance your career or some other self-centered motivation, you lose.
