A Warrior's Arrows
The eleven children of Jonathan and Sarah Edwards have blessed our nation: By 1900, a reporter tracked down fourteen hundred of their descendants, among whom were 13 college presidents, sixty-five professors, two graduate school deans, one hundred lawyers, sixty-six physicians, eighty holders of public office, including three senators and three governors of states. “Sons born during one’s youth are like arrows in a warrior’s hand. How happy is the man who fills his quiver with them!” (Psa. 127:4, 5a) There is a ripple effect to righteous training in the home.
