A Godly Father, Not Just a Great Dad

There are many great dads out there in the world; fathers who are responsible, loving, kind, great providers, there for their families, and yes even a lot of fun.

 

But my prayer has always been
for our child(ren) that they not only have
a great dad, but are further blessed to have
a GODLY FATHER:

A dad who, above all else, loves the LORD with all his heart, soul, strength, and mind.  (Luke 10:27)

A dad who reverences and fears the LORD. (Proverbs 14:26)

A dad who lives out and teaches God’s Word daily for himself and to his family. (Deuteronomy 6:7)

A dad whose life is evidenced by the love of Christ. (1 John 3:23)

A dad who is a man of prayer, praying diligently for his family and others. (1 Timothy 5:17)

A dad who loves his wife as Christ loves the church. (Ephesians 5:25)

A dad who raises his children in the love, discipline, and instruction of the LORD. (Ephesians 6:4, Proverbs 22:6)

A dad who provides not only for the physical needs of his family, but more importantly, for the spiritual needs, which are eternal. (1 Timothy 4:8)

A dad who, even in his imperfectness, understands that his role as a father is one of the highest callings upon his life graciously given to him by God and who strives passionately after it.  (Genesis 18:19, Joshua 24:15)

 

THIS is the type of godly man, godly father I desire for our children, for our family, as my husband.  And this is the type of man our son and I have been so blessed to receive!

My husband is far from perfect, but he is without a doubt a GODLY MAN – a man who truly seeks after God and His love and wisdom.

 

Happy Father’s Day to the best father and husband I could have ever asked for for our family!
