“Fellow parents, what has God placed in our quivers? Are children not ‘like arrows in the hand of a warrior’ (Psalm 127:4)? In this new season of adventure, let us reinforce God’s mission by sharpening and sending our arrows much further than we ourselves have gone.”

“The late Howard Hendricks challenged aspiring Bible teachers with this principle: Never do for your students what they can do for themselves.
