Obedience, Godly Fathers’ Version

Listen, O Israel! The Lord is our God, the Lord alone. And you must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your strength. And you must commit yourselves wholeheartedly to these commands that I am giving you today. Repeat them again and again to your children. Talk about them when you are at home and when you are on the road, when you are going to bed and when you are getting up. Tie them to your hands and wear them on your forehead as reminders. Write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.” Deuteronomy 6:4-9 NLT

So, on this Father’s Day the operative question is “what are the qualities of a Godly father?” Here is God’s top ten list (Note 1):

Godly fathers:

  1. Are devoted to Christ
  2. Are men of prayer
  3. Love their family
  4. Spiritually lead their family
  5. Discipline and provide correction
  6. Demonstrate forgiveness
  7. Provide for their family
  8. Strive to live their lives above reproach
  9. Model service, generosity, and contentment
  10. Leave a legacy of faith.

This is what Godly fathers do.

The world desperately needs more Godly fathers.
