Unless God is in the business of building a home, the effort is in vain. In Psalm 127, God reveals that the best reward a man can receive is not what his hands can provide, but only what God can give him – a child.
Sons are indeed a heritage from the LORD, children a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the sons born in one’s youth. Happy is the man who has filled his quiver with them. Such men will never be put to shame when they speak with [their] enemies at the city gate. -Psalm 127:3-5
Imagine it’s Christmas time. You have given your child a gift that took a lot of your time and money. After your child unwraps the gift, he or she begins to complain about having to care for the gift. How do you feel concerning their attitude and what do you say and/or do as a result of their reaction?
How do you think God views it when parents complain about the gifts of children that He has given them?
