Psalm 127:4 As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man; So are children of the youth.
Being a parent is one of the greatest blessings that God has ever given any of us. We get to raise up and train children that He has given us. They are not ours to keep but to prepare and work with till they set out on the plan God has for their lives.
We should take very seriously the privilege we have of being parents. Teach your children to love and honor God. See them as your way to glorify God. See them as a way to make a difference in this world. They are your arrows, your weapons to influence the world for the gospel.
Arrows are long-distance weapons. They go where you are not. So you spend years preparing your children to launch them into the world to share your faith. What a privilege to be a parent!
