Before I go to bed, let me share with you the clip of my message I shared with the people of God here in Austin, Texas.
For those who cannot understand Amharic, all I am saying is this:
“Children are a heritage from the Lord,
offspring a reward from him.
Like arrows in the hands of a warrior
are children born in one’s youth.” (Psalm 127:3-4)
Our children are like arrows in the hands of a warrior!
Are we using “our arrows” to reach others with the Gospel?
As immigrants, we may fall short when it comes to understanding the language and culture of the people we live with. But if we train our kids how to live out the Gospel, we can become relevant and beneficial to our neighbors and the whole society at large.
May God help us all! ///
