God was grieved and pained over the action of people. He is still grieved by the sinful choices of men today. What does this tell us about God’s most freeing choice? That He cares for all of us. Only a God who cares for His creation could be grieved by their disobedience. If He didn’t grieve then He wouldn’t care. We have an amazing God who cares for His creation.
We all have the same amount of it, and yet we never seem to have enough of it. When you think about it time is one the most valuable commodities that we all possess. After all, there are only twenty-four hours in a given day no matter how wealthy one is, or how poor. The value in time is how we make use of it.
Maybe this is God’s way of reminding us about the end and how, as painful as it may be, we have the potential for life after death. We have Jesus, and those who put their faith and trust in Him as Lord and Savior will never again taste death.
We will face these and other questions, and dads better have an answer. Now, I do not have all the answers, but I know where to look when I need help. God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble (Psalm 46:1). We can sit down with our children and find Him in the Bible.
I have daughters. While I can still set examples for them, be it through Bible reading, prayer and family time, I can set an example for them on how men should treat women. In doing so, I can teach them what to look for in a man.
One Million Dads started with 2 guys, new fathers, who wanted to make an impact for the kingdom. We saw a great need to encourage Christian fathers. In a society that thrives on stark individualism, we felt a need to say, “Hey, we know what you are going through.”
I love my daughter. She is the apple of my eye. She is my princess. I can honestly say that she has had me wrapped around her little finger since the day the doctor handed her to me. One prayer I have is that I hope she doesn’t turn out to be a “radical feminist”.
I hope, for my child’s sake, that Donald Trump’s presidency is a successful one. His is a unique presidency to say the least. Yet, we will all take part in the residual affects whether we voted for him or not. Christians, though we feel victorious now, would do well to remember that it is on our knees that we are saved and not through the ballot box.
What would the church look like if we truly gave God his due? What if, instead of trying to climb the ladder at work, trying to get on a certain committee at church, or attain some goal that we think will make us happy, we truly honored Him first in all things?
