Hi, guys —

  • Why does God give children to those who do not want children (unmarried people for example), and not to couples who would like to become parents, but can't?

Thomas, a trusted friend replied:


I know first hand, how difficult it can be for someone, who wanted children, not to be able to conceive naturally, for my wife and I were just not able.

That being said, we were able to adopt and still create a family despite the fertility issues.

The fact that many people abuse sex and create unplanned pregnancies is just a side effect of the freedom we have. God made us free. We are not robots, so we often do things that defy the way He intended us to behave.

That being said, in His permissive Will, He allows things that are not good to happen because He loves us and would never coerce us into submission. Ultimately, He can use even evil circumstances to bring about good, otherwise He wouldn't have allowed any evil to occur.

So, in any given situation, it is impossible to know the full mind of God but, in general, we can know that He will work good for those who love Him, despite how it looks on the surface. He never promised that we wouldn't have a suffering-free life, and infertility is a suffering that is really hard.

I know that personally, but I have always felt God's loving presence with us.
