If we rationalize our problems when He points them out, we will spend less and less time meditating because we won't want to face God in that area of our lives.
He wants you all to Himself to put His loving, divine arms around you.
In giving us children, God places us in a position of both leadership and service. He calls us to give up our lives for someone else's sake - to abandon our own desires and put our child's interests first. Yet, according to His perfect design, it is through this selflessness that we can become truly fulfilled.
Nations fight against nations, in marriages people fight against each other, children fight against each other. We are in warfare, in a national warfare, and in warfare with each other and with ourselves.
