I’ve been mulling over a particular thought lately, and I decided it would be great fun (and sharpening of mind) to open a discussion about it. Like always, I’m only interested in thoughtful and respectful comments; all others will be deleted.
I will not be able to join the discussion until later, as we are headed toward our soon-to-be home (no, we’re not in yet!) to work like mad. But I look forward to joining later.
Here is the thought:
What is the purpose of children in the life of a Christian? And, how does the answer to that question change our life-decisions?
In formulating a one-sentence answer to the first question, (it’s harder than you think), it sparks some very interesting thoughts about life in EVERY area. Even for me, who ponders these “issues of life” often and deeply, this question has been an important one and really challenges me in a lot of ways.
