161 Arrows in the Hand of a Warrior Series


Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord,
    the fruit of the womb a reward.
 Like arrows in the hand of a warrior
    are the children of one’s youth.
 Blessed is the man
    who fills his quiver with them!
He shall not be put to shame
    when he speaks with his enemies in the gate.

Psalm 127:3-5

   I found myself worrying about raising a baby in the culture of the world today – as I’m sure most parents eventually worry about – and I got pretty sad.  I wondered why at all to have kids, what’s the point if I feel so out numbered as a Christian.  Then last Sunday we had baby dedications at church and a pastor shared this verse (above) and explained that we are to be on the offense, not the defense, when raising our kids.  It was exactly the verse I’ve been looking for to meditate on while growing this little girl in me.  

This is a little mini series I did with all the images floating in my head since Sunday, I do hope to get inspired for a larger piece or two in the future.  Here they are individually:
