This scripture here says as arrows are in the hands of a mighty man, so are children of the youth. Do you know an arrow cannot shoot itself? The arrow has to be shot by somebody. No matter how good the arrow is, until somebody shoots it, it cannot hit the target. The owner of the arrow is the one who sharpens his arrow and then directs it in the direction he truly wants it to be targeted. Therefore, parents have a huge role to play to ensure that their children turn out well.

Children also, as arrows, should willingly submit themselves to parents so they can be prepared as mighty instruments that hit targets. There must be a willing submission. In other words, no matter how talented a child is or how much God has invested in the child, and no matter the plans, agenda, purpose, and design that God has for the child if the child is not well directed, the child may end up not fulfilling purpose. That places a responsibility on children to submit to parents so that they may be adequately directed.

Children are prone to a lot of things. And in this day and hour, many things are begging for their attention. There are distractions here and there, some of which include technology and all kinds of peer pressure. If care is not taken and you choose to go in a particular direction without guidance, you may end up being a disappointment in life. Not because God has not planned something great for your life but because you did not submit to the mighty hand that is supposed to shoot you.

I encourage every child to decide today to submit to their parents and leaders that God has planted in their way, under the guidance of the Lord, and you will fulfill your purpose. I pray that you will fulfill your purpose. You will not miss your way.
