Godly Role Model

Fathers, do not irritate and provoke your children to anger [do not exasperate them to resentment], but rear them [tenderly] in the training and discipline and the counsel and admonition of the Lord.
Ephesians 6:4 AMP

"The Christian father is really an instrument in God's hand. The whole process of instruction and discipline must be that which God commands and which He administers, so that His authority should be brought into constant and immediate contact with the mind, heart, and conscience of children. Christian discipline is needed to enable children to grow up with reverence for God, respect for parental authority, knowledge of Christian standards, and habits of self-control. As the father is faithful in role modeling, what children learn about God will put them in good standing throughout their earthly lives, no matter what they do or where they go."

Prayer for the day:

Lord, you are the one true Father who remains faithful and full of unconditional love. Today, we pray specifically for fathers and fatherhood across our land. Your Word in Ephesians 6:4 clearly instructs fathers to bring up their children in the discipline and instruction of the Lord. We thank You for the men who are leading according to Your statutes and the ones that are laying their lives down for Your purposes. We pray that You will continue to use these men to lead their families and other men. We pray You will strengthen the fathers of our nation and that You will continue to empower churches, organizations, and individuals to invest in fathers and fatherhood for the sake of our families and children. May our prayer bring peace and glory to every home and life today. In Jesus' most precious name, Amen.
