But if any provide not for his own, and especially for those of his own house, he has denied the faith, and is worse than an unbeliever. 1 Timothy 5:8
The role of Father is very important, and God has revealed this to us throughout The Bible. Just as we call God our Heavenly Father, there is no greater positon of authority in the world. That’s why the position of Father needs to be taken serious and not abused or squandered.
God shows us in this scripture, any Father who doesn’t properly provide for their family is worse than an unbeliever, some translations use the word “infidel” Regardless it shows you God expects us to take care of the families that he has blessed us with. Our highest priority should be our family, if we fail there we fail everywhere.
Fathers, do not exasperate your children; instead, bring them up in the training and instruction of the Lord. Ephesians 6:4
As a Father its important to learn how to raise our children, we must teach them discipline but also show them love and compassion. We need to be building up and encouraging our children, not just criticizing them. We should always look to Jesus as an example of how to be a good Father.
Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it. Proverbs 22:6
Although we want to always be loving and kind, we still need to teach our children. We can’t expect children to know what they don’t know. Its our duties as Fathers to prepare our children for the world. To teach them right and wrong and most importantly teach them about God
For I have chosen him, so that he will direct his children and his household after him to keep the way of the LORD by doing what is right and just Genesis 18:19
You didn’t become a Father by mistake, many guys will claim they had a child by accident, ect. This is a cop out. God has chosen you to be a Father for your child. Its time for you to man up and fulfill the role of Father that you were chosen to be
Being a Father is the most rewarding calling you can ever have, and its important to know that we are not alone. God has provided us with instruction and wisdom in Jesus Name Amen
