Responsible Fathers

Fathers Are You Fulfilling Your Duty?

“Hear, my children, the instruction of a father, and give attention to know understanding; for I give you good doctrine: do not forsake my law.  When I was
my father’s son, tender and the only one in the sight of my mother, he also taught me, and said to me: ‘Let your heart retain my words; keep my commands, and live.  Get wisdom!  Get understanding!’…”
(Prov. 4:1-5).

One parent said, “We will not influence our children in making choices and decisions in matters of religion!”  Another parent replied, “But why not?  The ads will!  The press will!  The movies will!  The neighbors will!  The forces of sin will!  The politicians will!  We use our influence over flowers, vegetables, cattle, etc.  Shall we ignore our own children?  May
God forgive us if we do!”

All parents have a God-given duty toward their children; and this responsibility begins with “dad.” Paul said, “And you, fathers, do not provoke your children to wrath, but bring them up in the training and admonition of the Lord” (Eph. 6:4).  Truly, friends, our nation needs more dads like that.
