I am an uncle. This means I have either a brother or sister with a child or my wife has a brother or sister with a child.
But what might this mean in the world around me?
It might only mean that God has blessed me or my wife with a brother or sister who has a child. But – it could mean more that this.
This could be an example of God’s choice and God’s will. It is God’s will for some couples to have children and some couples not to have children. Bible examples point this out. Some women in the Bible have prayed and have change God’s will so they did have children when at first it seemed it was God’s will that they not have children.
Science seems to be messing with God’s will these days. Today, couples may seek out “scientific methods” in order to have children without going through prayer. Is there a reason from God for a couple not being able to have a child? This should be addressed first. If God says, “This couple should not have a child”, would it be good or right to go against what God says? I think not if there was no prayer and searching for God’s reasoning first.
Today’s use of scientific methods gives each of us a way around God. We don’t have to trust God or have faith in God’s judgments. Today we can go around God’s back and say, “I don’t care what you think, God, I am going to have it my way.”
Scientific methods are good if used along with a trust in God’s judgment. Let each of us be careful to have faith in God’s judgment and if we think differently use prayer first to change God’s will in a matter.
