“Behold, children are a gift of the LORD, the fruit of the womb is a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior, so are the children of one’s youth. Blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them; they will not be ashamed when they speak with their enemies in the gate.” (Psalm 127:3-5)
Business magnate and philanthropist Carlos Slim once observed, “Most people try to make a better world for our children when what they should be doing is making better children for our world.” He has a point.
Like arrows in hand, we prepare our kids. We train them. We fit them to the string and launch them into the world, praying that God will help them fly true and hit the mark, making an impact for His glory.
And if God has blessed us with a full quiver, we repeat this process again. And again. And again. Twelve times over, in our family’s case. What an awesome responsibility and humbling privilege parents have of pointing our children to Jesus and training them up in the fear and admonition of the Lord.
