In other words, here we find the palpable proof of how much we love God – by loving our brothers! But mind that this love for our brothers (children, parents, husband or wife) does not reach the level of idolatry! What does idolatry mean? To put the ones whom you love above everything, above God. God should always be on the first place.
For those of you who wish to have a child “by force!” Leave it to God, because he knows when the right time will come. Some people, even if their life is not very ordered from a spiritual point of view, “push” God to give them a child when they want. In His love, God gives them their desired child but with time they will see that, growing up, he becomes anxious because he inherited the passions of his parents, and they, themselves will fall into a greater state of anxiety, because they have conceived a child who resembles them in their passions, since they did not tried to purify themselves before asking for a child.
Pain is a bad thing, but behind it, behind the suffering and the test lies the blessing of God, the rebirth and the refashion of man and of family. Almost everyone owes their return to this aspect. Behind any trial there is God’s will and of course at that time we cannot see the benefit, but in time we will be able to see it. We have so many examples in this regard!
