Matt and Lauren Chandler to Married Couples: God’s Design Is for You to Have Children

In a new Tuesday video series promoting Matt Chandler’s upcoming book Mingling of the Soul: God’s Design for Love, Marriage, Sex and Redemption, the Texas pastor and his wife Lauren told husbands and wives that God’s big plan for them is to have children.

Examining God’s command to Adam and Eve to be fruitful and multiply, Matt Chandler urged married couples, „You’ve been designed by God physically, emotionally to have children. … God’s big plan is for a man and woman to marry … and have children unless they’re called to singleness.”

Couples questioning God’s design in their lives should consider their motives, he said. „I think the question I’d like to ask back [is] I want to know why you wouldn’t want to have children. I think more often than not what gets revealed is a selfishness of heart or some kind of fear that’s either rooted in an experience or not rooted in reality at all.”

Matt Chandler concluded by advising married men and women to „pursue the gift of God in children.”
