Issues surrounding the creation and care of children touch almost every married couple. The marital one-flesh relationship forms the context in which God creates new human beings. These new beings make demands of the parents, challenging and stretching their ability to love, to forgive, to be consistent, and to provide for their children’s physical, emotional, and spiritual needs. In this practical, immediate care for their children, parents are given an opportunity for character growth.
