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 Ė it could mean more that this.
This could be an example of Godís choice and Godís will. It is Godís 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 Godís will so they did have children when at first it seemed it was Godís will that they not have children.
Science seems to be messing with Godís will these days. Today, couples may seek out ďscientific methodsĒ 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, ďThis couple should not have a childĒ, would it be good or right to go against what God says? I think not if there was no prayer and searching for Godís reasoning first.
Todayís use of scientific methods gives each of us a way around God. We donít have to trust God or have faith in Godís judgments. Today we can go around Godís back and say, ďI donít care what you think, God, I am going to have it my way.Ē
Scientific methods are good if used along with a trust in Godís judgment. Let each of us be careful to have faith in Godís judgment and if we think differently use prayer first to change Godís will in a matter.
