BE WELL DIRECTED TO FULFILL PURPOSE
Dr. Mike Okonkwo

17 October, 2021

“Lo, children are an 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.” Psalm 127:3-4 KJV

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 it is shot by somebody, it cannot hit the target. The owner of the arrow is the one that sharpens his arrow and then directs it in the direction he truly wants it to be targeted.

Children 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. No matter how talented a child is, no matter how much God has invested in the child and no matter the plans and purpose for that child, if he is not well directed, the child may end up not getting to his or her destination. 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. In this day and hour, there are distractions here and there- technology and all kinds of peer pressure. If care is not taken and you choose to go 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.

Take a cue from Jesus: Despite the level of understanding that He displayed that made doctors and religious leaders to be astonished, the scripture says he went back home and was obedient to His parents. Consequently, “Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favour with God and man” (Luke 2:52 KJV). Decide today to submit to your parents under the guidance of the Lord and you will fulfill purpose. You will not miss your way.
