I ran across this quote a while back, attributed to Doug Phillips, founder and head-boss-guy of Vision Forum. I haven’t heard/seen him say/write it, but it certainly falls within his belief system, and I think it bears some reflecting on.
The Bible calls debt a curse and children a blessing; but in our culture, we apply for a curse and reject blessings. Something is wrong with this picture.” ~ Doug Phillips
I have never actually thought of it this way.
