Sermon Series: Love & Respect – Raising Up World Changers
In Psalm 127:4, you will find an amazing statement about your child. Many of us know of the previous verse, in which we are told, “Behold, children are a gift of the Lord; the fruit of the womb is a reward.” That’s a nice, warm, safe verse.
But then look at verse four: “Like arrows in the hand of a warrior, so are the children of one’s youth.” Think about those words. The psalmist refers to your child as an arrow—a weapon! And that is no mistake.
God has great plans for your child. Arrows are not meant to be kept safe in the quiver. He wants you to eventually release that arrow to make an impact on our world with the love of Christ. And guess who gets to be the primary “crafter” of the arrow? Parents and mentors.
There are four parts of an arrow that can be used as a biblical battle plan for parenting:
The arrow’s Fletching: Worth & Value
The arrow’s Shaft: Christ-like Character
The arrow’s Nock: Relationship with Jesus
The arrow’s Head: Mission
