|“The glory of children are their fathers.”|
(Proverbs 17:6, KJV)
Fathers play such an important roll in the lives of their children. Fathers pour confidence, hope, love, and security into them and in turn, their children reflect that. It’s one way of showing honor. In the natural, the role of the father is to reflect God to their children.
If you are a father, always keep that in mind. You are investing in your children and your input in their lives is so valuable.
When you think about your own Father, maybe he had some characteristics you don’t want to reflect. That’s where God makes up the difference. Don’t dwell on your father’s shortcomings, instead, dwell on the the good things he poured into you. Be thankful for the life you have and who you are. Honor your father today because God promises to bless you. Reflect Him by showing honor and let His glory shine on you!
|A Prayer for Today|
|“Dear God, today I pray for fathers everywhere. I pray that you guide and direct them and turn their hearts towards their families. I pray for peace, strength, and blessing on Fathers today and everyday. In Jesus’ name, Amen.”|
