Yes, true today in many countries too. I've always wanted children, but unfortunately never found a man I wanted to marry! Maybe I'll still get married (got willing) but I'll never have children. A great sadness in my life.

Barrenness was often seen as the judgment of God against a home. In that culture, every young woman wanted the same thing. They all wanted to be a mother who would bear many sons for their husbands. And, they all wanted to be the woman through whom God would send the Messiah. To be barren crushed both those dreams. To be barren in that culture meant that a woman was always exposed to the danger of being divorced by a husband who wanted sons. It meant that when her husband died, she would be alone and destined to a life of poverty. No man would willingly marry a woman who was known to be barren. It was a hard, harsh life. Did You Know? Vic.

HAVE A BLESSED DAY

Let's make the journey to heaven together.
