Most people never think about their dreams and consider them as something unimportant for their existence and wellbeing but they are so wrong.
Dreams are very important. They give us tremendous insight into the depths of our subconscious and point out to the issues we are not even aware of having, reminding us to acknowledge them and begin confronting them.
Even dreams which are a result of everyday events, could give us valuable insights and solutions we seek for our problems.
Ancient dream interpretation often used the Biblical meaning of dream symbols to interpret dreams, while modern day interpretation of dreams is usually a combination of ancient dream interpretation and modern psychoanalysis approach.
Babies in dreams are a frequent symbol. These dreams could have different meanings, usually good ones, but sometimes they could signify warnings.
Biblical Interpretation of Babies
We are all God’s creatures, and babies, as the first stage of human development after birth, are often mentioned in the Bible. A lot of wisdom emanates from these words.
In the Ecclesiastes, it is said: “As you do not know the path of the wind, or how the body is formed in a mother’s womb, so you cannot understand the work of God, the Maker of all things”. With these words, we are reminded not to question, but to accept God and his power.
In Proverbs, there is a saying: “Discipline your children, and they will give you peace; they will bring you the delights you desire.” There is also a saying: “Start children of on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from It”, and a saying: “Listen to your father, who gave you life, and don’t despise your mother when she is old.” These words remind us how important proper upbringing of our children is.
In Mark God’s words are: “Truly I tell you, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.” With these words, God reminds us to be innocent like little children otherwise we won’t be accepted in Heaven.
In Psalm 127 it is said: “Children are a heritage from the Lord, offspring a reward from him. Like arrows in the hands of a warrior are children born in one’s youth. Blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them. They will not be put to shame when they contend with their opponents in court”. These words remind us how blessed we are to have children, especially when having a lot of them.
