Building a Nation, by Colin Campbell

Children are Building a Nation

Children are wonderful.
They are beautiful.
They know how to get your attention.
We adore their chubby cheeks.
Their cute ways.
Their big innocent eyes.
Their little pitter patter of feet.
Their unending questions as they seek answers.
They are our flesh and blood.
They hold our DNA.
They are our future.
They are our heritage.
They are our true riches (money and possessions cannot compare!)
They are gifted, talented and creative.
They are tomorrow’s leaders.
They are tomorrow’s provision for our family and nation.
They are tomorrow’s security.
They draw love and many other virtues from us.
They make us a charactered people as we build character in them.
We must take responsibility for them so they will in turn take responsibility for us.
Without children there would be no family, no Home, Sweet, Home.
No family vacations.
No birthday parties.
No romances.
No weddings.
No future work force.
No future soldiers to fight evil.
No future fathers and mothers.
No babies.
No families.
No nation.
It is foolish to raise cats, dogs, and goldfish to satisfy our paternal and maternal instincts
Animals and things are no substitute for children.
By refusing children we accept the destruction of our nations.
Parenting children is NATION BUILDING.
Our western nations have become sterile, selfish, spoiled and boring.
We have sacrificed our families and nations on the altars of selfishness, careerism, and materialism.
Without families we have become lonely, deprived, unfulfilled, and uncharactered.
We have no families to come home to.
No laughter, no singing, no natural family to entertain us.
We have no one to care for.
No one to love.
In turn, we have no one to love us.
We have been deceived.
We have created our own holocaust.
We have destroyed ourselves through contraception, sterilization, and abortion.
Pro-choice is the choice of destruction.
We have broken the generational chain.
The dynasties are quickly ending.
Hell claps its hands.
Heaven weeps.
What have we left to live for?
Every Christian husband and wife should aim to build a dynasty for God.
The world, heaven, and all creation waits to see what can come out of your home.
Give your children your very best effort.
Your home is your sculpturing studio.
But you are not sculpturing clay, stone or paper mache.
You are sculpturing flesh and blood.
As your children are molded in the ways of God you are sculpturing nothing less than the glorious likeness and image of God.
The whole world is waiting.
This is the desperate need of the nations.
What are you waiting for?
It is high time to stand up and take your place in the greatest building project of all time–THE FAMILY.
