Children Are a Reward

The world teaches us that children come with a cost. But they don’t teach you that they come with a reward. The reward is the harmony created in a home centered on God and His purpose. In all the years I’ve been listening, no mom has ever told me she wished she had fewer children, but at least 100 have told me they wish they had more.

Children, too, are a gift from the Lord, the fruit of the womb, a reward. (Psalm 127:4) Not a burden, a reward.

Barbara blogs at Mommy Life. I frequently visit Barbara's blog but this particular quote I found at another neat site, Voices for Life, which offers a pro-life quote of the day. Check them both out.)
