Video from Revive Our Hearts

Leaving a Godly Legacy

"When it comes to investing in the next generation, God says you’re like a watchman, a builder, and a warrior." from video introduction


Dannah Gresh: Psalm 127 tells us children are like arrows in the hands of a warrior. Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth says that means parents need to take some careful aim.

Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth: Our effectiveness as warriors, in many senses, determines the effectiveness of those arrows. If they’re crooked, if they’re not shaped correctly, if they’re sent in the wrong direction, then they’re not going to fulfill their purpose.

Dannah: This is the Revive Our Hearts podcast with Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth, author of Lies Women Believe and the Truth That Sets Them Free, for June 28, 2023. I’m Dannah Gresh.

I hope you’ll pay attention if you’re a parent, or a grandparent, or a teacher, or if you have influence on children at all. Nancy’s going to show you why you are a watchman, a worker, and a warrior. Here she is to introduce the series “Leaving a Godly Legacy.”

Nancy: Psalm 127:

Unless the LORD builds the house, they labor in vain who build it; unless the LORD guards the city, the watchman stays awake in vain. It is vain for you to rise up early, to sit up late, to eat the bread of sorrows; for so He gives His beloved sleep.

Behold, children are a heritage from the LORD, the fruit of the womb is a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior, so are the children of one’s youth. Happy is the man who has his quiver full of them; they shall not be ashamed, but shall speak with their enemies in the gate.

And then Psalm 128:.." from the transcript
