“Build houses and settle down; plant gardens and eat what they produce.
Marry and have sons and daughters; find wives for your sons and give your daughters in marriage, so that they too may have sons and daughters. Increase in number there; do not decrease. Also, seek the peace and prosperity of the city to which I have carried you into exile. Pray to the Lord for it, because if it prospers, you too will prosper.” Jeremiah: 29v5-7
Too many want decrease when a brother falls in some way. The true God says “You might be slaves for a time but don’t decrease, prosper and enlarge for your future is full of hope, and a glorious outcome!!!!!”
