22nd June 2015


Hi there!

I hope you all had a fab Father's Day! I hope you had as good a day as I did, and that all the wives and children out there spoiled the men in their lives!

Yesterday, I spoke about fatherhood, and what it means to be a Dad and spoke from Proverbs 22, pictured above. In the message version, it says,

"Point your kids in the right direction - 
when they’re old they won’t be lost."

 

I love the simplicity of this translation. After all, who of us would hate for our kids to get lost? The fact is it isn't just down to them, or some external source. When we become parents, we are given a job. A task to guide and educate our children in the right ways. We looked at what Paul taught Timothy in  2 Tim 3:16 and learnt four things that God's word does in;

  • Teaching
  • Rebuking
  • Correcting
  • Training

We are tasked with teaching our children and leading them through life, according to the scripture. They will make mistakes, naturally, and here, we are tasked with rebuking, correcting, and training. We must be able to set an example to them and to live by that example. We cannot ask our children to live a life that we do not live ourselves. 

I think this says it all. We sing this to God, of how He is always there, walking ahead of us. Leading the way, holding us up, helping us up when we fall, and yet we can still know and trust that He loves us and always will. There are times when we will anger Him, but no matter what we do, He still loves and cares for us, and will never turn His back on us, and this is something that we should strive for in our relationships with our own children. 

I pray that we will follow these biblical principles and guidelines, to help us to teach and guide our own children, as God teaches and guides us. 

Have a great week!
