As Believers, we have the greatest example of a father in our Heavenly Father. This Sunday we celebrate the gift of fatherhood, but let us also remember to use the gift of access to our Heavenly Father daily. The relationship with Him is our most important, in life. The Word is very specific on how we should reflect the Father’s Love when blessed to parent children:
1 - God cares about the relationship between fathers and their children.
And he will turn the hearts of fathers to their children and the hearts of children
to their fathers, lest I come and strike the land with a decree of utter destruction.
2 - Parenting is a temporary stewardship. Marriage is forever. The best
thing you can do for your kids is to be a good husband.
Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife,
and they shall become one flesh.
3 - Godly parenting is founded in reverencing the Lord.
In the fear of the LORD is strong confidence: and his children shall have a place
4 - Godly parents guide their children.
Behold, children are a heritage from the LORD, the fruit of the womb a reward.
Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the children of one’s youth. Blessed is
the man who fills his quiver with them!
