Scripture of the Day - March 21, 2012

Ephesians 6:4 And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.

Fathers are expected to be loving and kind to their children. They are expected to instruct their children in the ways of God. Deuteronomy 6:7 And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children. The ways of God ought to be the passion of fathers and that passion will be passed down to their children. They will see the godly example of their fathers and follow after it. The will heed the instruction of their fathers and prosper. (There are always exceptions to the rule unfortunately.)

As head of the home, fathers have the responsibility to set the example. It is imperative that they set a godly example because God will not bless a man who is rebellious to His ways. Provoking children to anger with harsh put-downs and nasty comments are notGod's ways. Forcing children through violence and fear are not God's ways. Whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. If a man wants love and respect from his family he must first set an example of love and respect.
