On the Sixth Day (5/6): God instructed the male and female “man” to multiply and increase in number. From those initial two people, we are now approaching 8 billion people on the face of the earth.
Then God said, “Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals and over all the creatures that move along the ground.” So God created mankind in his own image,in the image of God he created them;male and female he created them. God blessed them and said to them, “Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky and over every living creature that moves on the ground.” Genesis 1:26-28 | NIV
Humans continue to honour that initial instruction to multiply and are doing a great job. However, love of the Lord may not be keeping pace with the exponential population growth.
There are distractions to the instruction to multiply with a minority of great people choosing a childless future; one in which their names and legacy end. This again is not what God intended. He wants us to live for ever and to live a legacy in earth.
