No, Mr. Obama children are not a punishment. They are:
a blessing and a reward!
Behold children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward. As arrows in the hands of a warrior, so are the children of one's youth.
Happy blessed and fortunate is the man whose quiver is filled with them!
Before I formed you in the womb I knew and approved of you and before you were born I separated and set you apart...
For you did form my inward parts; You did knit me together in my mother's womb. I will confess and praise you for you are fearful and wonderful and for the awful wonder of my birth! Wonderful are your works and that my inner self knows right well.
My frame was not hidden from You when I was being formed in secret, intricately and curiously wrought [as if embroidered with various colors] in the depths of the earth [a region of darkness and mystery].
Your eyes saw my unformed substance, and in your book all the days [of my life] were written before ever they took shape, when as yet there were none of them.
And he made from one [common origin, one source, one blood] all nations of men to settle on the face of the earth, having definitely determined [their] allotted periods of time and the fixed boundaries of their habitation.
So that they should seek God, in the hope that they might feel after Him and find Him, although he is not far from each one of us.
The children God allows to be born into this world are not mistakes or punishments. When you hold fast to the word of God which is absolute truth, you will soon realize that each life has a purpose and plan. In the above verse, why does God determine the exact time and place in which we should live? So that we will seek Him and find Him! Whatever home or situation a child is born into, is so they will seek God or cause that particular family to seek God. God's ultimate will is always our spiritual condition. How many families have not turned their hearts to God because they have aborted the child that God had purposed to bring that family close to Him?
Here's another video that I have heard was chilling. Haven't watched it yet because we are on dial-up. Beware the discussion comments below this video are argumentative and use strong, offensive language.
Think long and hard...
