What are the challenges and encouragements for parents? Like this man, who you are may not be most important. It is important, however, that you be where you should be, doing what God has called you to do. You need to be faithful, upright, and demonstrating integrity in your parenting tasks. You need to know the enemy and how you are to fight him. Each day, you need to let fly arrows of scriptural truth and wisdom. You may never know how God may use one of those arrows to change your child’s heart, alter the course of his/her life, and use him/her to impact many others for His glory.
