We see something similar when an only child has a new baby brother or sister in the house. Not getting attention sothey cause trouble. Parents try to reassure the child that they love him because the child thinks that the parents will love her less because of the new baby. Think about the Duggers-19 children and counting. This is what Michelle Dugger said: “We would love more! I know that my mommy years are probably numbered, and I don’t know how many more children God will see fit to give me. ... [I]t is something we’ve been praying about because we do love children. Each child really is a gift and that doesn’t mean just our children. We asked the Lord to give us a love of children the way He loves children. That is something that we’ve prayed about, and we’ll just see what the Lord has in store for our family in the future.” See all of these children does not lessen their love, it enhances it.

Come on now, we only have so much time and energy to go around and someone will get slighted. This is true from a human perspective, but I’m saying all of this to get us to realize that God does not have that problem. God has an unlimited amount of Himself to go around so more children only enhance His love. With each addition to His family, His love only expands- He loves every one of His children boundlessly. He loves His church- each individual part, and the body as a whole- fully.
