Now the time came for Elizabeth to be delivered, and she gave birth to a son. And her neighbours and kinsfolk heard that the Lord had shown great mercy to her, and they rejoiced with her.
Luke 1. 57, 58
It is in the natural order of things to rejoice and be glad when a new life comes into the world. And yet there are those who regard these precious gifts from the Lord as if they were something they may reject.
