What is missing as the root reason for 35-year-old women to ask a question about when is the right time to have children that King Solomon and Google wisdom discerned to avoid asking a psychologist or a love lore advice columnist?
The Chicago Tribune Ask Amy article titled: Women feels the tick tock of biological clock, asked the following question and answer excerpts:
Question Asked – Excerpts
“I am a woman about to turn 35 years old… I have had failed relationships with other men I thought I would spend my life with…. I have been with my boyfriend for a year and a half…… Neither of us have ever had children. We have had many discussions about our future: getting married, living together, and having kids……We have ideas, but no plans.”
Answer Given – Excerpts
“Your therapist knows you…… a life-skill that will help you through many challenging times….the drive to have children before it’s “too late” (however we interpret that) is very real…. My therapist says that fear of my advancing age is NOT a good reason to have children. Can you two turn your ideas into plans? Life is not a straight, smooth, and narrow path. A mature, balanced, self-actualized person learns how to roll with it.”
The Purpose of This Post
Is to relate ancient wisdom proverbial verses and observations made 3000 years ago to the question and answer to discern or solve the conundrum for interested readers the wisdom or folly of whys and wherefores of the question and answers.
King Solomon – Clues
To everything there is a season, and a time for every purpose under heaven: (Ecclesiastes 3:1)
In their hearts humans plan their course, but the LORD establishes their steps. (Proverb 16:9)
In the way of righteousness there is life; along that path is immortality. (Proverb 12:28)
I charge you, O daughters of Jerusalem, that ye stir not up, nor awake my love, until he please. (Song of Songs 8:4)
Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old, they will not turn from it. (Proverb 22:6)
To satisfy his curious mind, Solomon turned to worldly pleasures instead of the pursuit of God. He collected all sorts of treasures and surrounded himself with luxury. In the case of his non-Jewish wives and concubines, Solomon allowed lust to rule his heart instead of obedience to God.
What’s My Point?
The answers to this conundrum were provided 3000 years ago.
My point the answer has been available for centuries. However, every generation ever since in history decided to believe they know better how to plan and live better than the advice of King Solomon and Jesus Christ lessons in life of Wisdom and Love recorded in the Bible.
In My Opinion
If we continue on the same path of Government mandates to choose what subjects to teach our children while at the same time to forbid teaching ‘obedience’s to God’s plan and follow the paths of the Wisdom and Love lessons in the Bible, the same questions this 35-year-old women will come to learn in her youth, we will continue to read the same folly that occur in life that we read and hear every day in the news in our counterparty times/
Except the same follies will be too late, after the folly has occurred same as king Solomon observed in this verse.
No one remembers the former generations, and even those yet to come will not be remembered by those who follow them. (Ecclesiastes 1:11)
What we need io do is to return the opportunity to poor or middle-class parents to be able to afford to choose what religious lessons and values to their children by voting for legislators to support school choice or school vouchers needed. Needed because many parents currently have no choice because ever since Government took over education in the USA, the costs to educate children has risen so high that parents cannot afford to pay two tuitions. One tuition in the form of taxation to fund public schools and a second to fund private schools.
If after discerning the above proverbs and Google reasons, would you agree that if the woman had the opportunity being been taught in her youth to understand in depth the advice on Wisdom and Love in the Bible, and obey, and follow the King Solomon verses advice to instead avoid the Google pursuits in life, her path in life might have provided an opportunity to never have to ask the question she is now asking a psychologist and love lore columnist?
