This morning’s post was written by Kelly Crawford from Generation Cedar. Kelly is the helpmeet to Aaron, and mother to 8 precious blessings.
I heard it again…quite a typical comment about grown children of large families:
“She was the oldest of six and felt like her mother required too much of her….so she doesn’t want a large family.”
Size of family debate aside…the issue here is not the number of siblings or the work load, but rather a fundamental lesson of the Christian life that the parents failed to transmit.
The conclusion that “I had to work too hard...” does not echo the perspective of a follower of Christ. The first misunderstanding is that life is somehow not largely about work.
Join me each Thursday as I share a devotional that has encouraged me in my walk as a wife and mother.
