Training Our Youth: Hitting the Mark
Psalms 127:1-4 says "Except the LORD build the house, they labor in vain that build it: except the LORD keep the city, the watchman wakes but in vain... Lo, children are a heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward. As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man; so are children of the youth." The Bible proclaims, "as arrows are," meaning that our youth given the proper training, can become weapons of war against the Devil. As parents, we must raise them in the Lord. The Scriptures also teach that our youth can be the example of the believers. Enjoy this teaching with Pastor Larry as he touches on hitting our mark, by raising up Godly children unto the Lord. The Bible is full of practical wisdom for our youth today.
Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.
- Proverbs 22:6 (KJV)
