On raising our children

My son, be wise, and make my heart glad, that I may answer him who reproaches me.  (Proverbs 27:11)

The confidence we should have in our children,

the way we raise them up to the Lord,

is that when we are confronted by those who oppose us,

our children will have our backs.

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 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)
