The Happy Duggers

Have you ever noticed how happy this family is wherever they go?  Michelle just announced that she is pregnant with her 20th baby and the whole family is excited for this new life.

People are very critical towards her.  How could she possibly want to bring another life into this populated world?  I can answer that.  We need more people like the Duggers in this world. 

Their motto is to love God and love others and they live it.  They are trained to work hard and not complain.  They will contribute mightily to this society.  They won't be asking for government handouts. 

I have watched their show for a long time.  The camera men say that what you see is what you get.  The children are never fighting.  They love being a part of a big family.  They have family devotions every day...reading God's Word and praying. 

There is Scripture calligraphy on the walls of their home.  They give to the community.  They pass out cookies to the firemen and policemen and then thank them for their hard work.  They go to places that have been hurt by tornadoes and help.

We need people like the Duggers.  This world needs people like them.  All the people that are critical of them, I am just curious how happy they are with life.  Most critical people I know are very unhappy people.  A grateful heart that trusts in God and His provision and leading is usually a happy person.

I love the Duggers.  I am happy that people are able to see a family living out God's Word.  They are an example of what Christians should look like...loving, serving, and pleasing others.  They are content in life and loving God. 

Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself.
Luke 10:27
