What The Bible Says
Good Samaritan's Penny Pulpit by Pastor Ed Rice
In God's economy good fathers are first to be good husbands with over a year's practice of selfless-love and Godly leadership in the home. There, with the wife of his youth, who has vowed submission and obedience to her husband, he is to practice and hone the three primary leadership skills: 1) Keep the main thing the main thing and plan each day and year towards goal fulfillment. 2) Include and motivate all individual participants; and 3) Meet all group needs for progress and success, and all individual needs of accomplishment and fulfillment; i.e. be a need-meeter. There are natural leaders, but most of us need to cognitively focus, labor, and train intensely on these three principles of leadership.
Add a child to this Godly endeavor and fathers can add three more challenges: 1) Hold onto the child's heart, “My son, give me thine heart, and let thine eyes observe my ways” (Proverbs 23:26). The Proverb's proceeding three verses tell how, the trailing six failure's tragic consequence. 2) “Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it” (Prov 22:6). Fathers who did not properly heed the spankings called for in Proverbs 13:24,17:6,25, 19:18,22:15,23:13, 14, 29:15 and 17 try to say that 22:6 is a principle not a promise, but it sure enough is God's Word. 3) “And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord” (Eph 6:4). A child without discipline has lifetime anger issues, authority issues, and acceptance issues, and we have raised such a triple-A generation by ignoring God's rules in home and child-rearing. God can fix your home. God can fix your child. In some cases, God alone. Happy Fathers Day.
