Father’s Do: Reflection #3

‘Fathers, do bring your children up in the training and instruction of the Lord.’ (Ephesians 6:4).

Glory of God

God is with us all the time and cares about every part of our lives.  ‘Whether we eat or drink or whatever we do, we will do it all for the glory of God.’ (1 Corinthians 10:31).  What an amazing verse! If we can eat and drink for the glory of God, ordinary family life is holy.

Fathers are living models and everyday examples in our homes. We will so live that our children experience the goodness of their heavenly Father through their earthly father. We are instructors. We will teach our children the word and the ways of the Lord. He will be at home in our home – in our work and our play, in our sorrows and our joys. We will sing and speak of Jesus every day. We will pray with and for our children. We will train our children to experience and to enjoy God in all they do.  God is good – All the time.
