Fathers are God’s creation to share life. Godly fathers share life with their families by providing for them, by leading them spiritually, and by sharing not only their lives but the gospel of Christ with them!
1 Timothy 5:8 – If anyone does not provide for his relatives, and especially for his immediate family, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever (NIV).
Malichi 2:7 – “For the lips of a priest ought to preserve knowledge, and from his mouth men should seek instruction—because he is the messenger of the Lord Almighty.
1 Peter 2:9 – But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.
1 Thessonians 2:8, 11-12 – We loved you so much that we were delighted to share with you not only the gospel of God but our lives as well, because you had become so dear to us. . . . 11 For you know that we dealt with each of you as a father deals with his own children, 12 encouraging, comforting and urging you to live lives worthy of God, who calls you into his kingdom and glory.
