"Behold, children are a heritage from 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.
Happy is the man who has his quiver full of them;
They shall not be ashamed,
But shall speak with their enemies in the gate." Psalm 127:3-5 (NKJV)
Have you ever thought how here in the Word children are described not as your "best friend", that something that was missing in your life, or your caretaker when you get older. They are described as "arrows in the hand of a warrior"! Our children are brought here to be mighty men and women of God. Treat them that way, pray for them that way. Pray our children are bold, strong and fearless in the Lord as they walk in the world today. Pray for the parents/adults in their lives are strong models of what living a Godly life is.
Love and Blessings!
