“Sons are a heritage from the Lord,
children a reward from him.
Like arrows in the hands of a warrior
are sons 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 enemies in the gate” (Psalm 127:3-5).
God gives children to men, men have the responsibility to take care of God’s heritage.It baffles me when i see children been misused or mishandled by their own Biological parents. I wonder what would move a parent to determine to sell her own child and for how much? imagine a mother deliberately abandoning her child, exposed to cold and hunger to die. Other instances a mother aids the kidnap or killing of her own child for whatever reasons known to her. In similar vein, under-age children are made to labour for survival, some are pushed into prostitution while others take to thuggery and armed robbery.Then i ask, do such people ever thought that they are privileged and empowered to be a recipient of God’s gift? Do they really know that many are desperately seeking to have such a gift without success? How are you handling the gifts of God in your care? They are like arrows in the hands of a warrior- A warrior with an arrow is a confident, brave and powerful person. Such a warrior is a blessed man because he has all it takes to be successful in life’s expedition. It is a great privilege for any man to have children, because defeat by his enemies become impossible. Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he/she is old, he/she will not depart from it.Children today are the adults and leaders of tomorrow. If you are favoured to have one, train him/her by all means you can.
