Ephesians 6:4 NASB "Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger, but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord."I'm sure we have all heard that old adage "monkey see monkey do"! That couldn't apply more to our children, they do what they see us fathers doing! So, the question is, what are we doing that they are seeing?! Today's verse speaks to the father's and relates to how we should be with our children. The sad reality is that the statistics are overwhelming that our children are suffering due to fatherless homes. It's one thing to be a dad and a completely different thing to be a father- one takes 30 seconds of pleasure and the other a life time of love. I am blessed to still have my father in my life, still showing me the example of what it means to be a godly father and for that I am blessed. Happy Father's Day this weekend to all the fathers and if you don't have children of your own, there are many who are fatherless, this could be your year to be a father and share the love of God our Father! peace, tom
