Like Father; Like Son

Like Father; Like Son

Do you have a passion to obey God? When it comes to obedience, passion is more than a feeling. It is a powerful desire to follow Christ and adhere to the biblical truth our Lord gave us. One important reason that a man should obey the truths of Scripture is to model obedience for his wife and children.

As a husband and father, you are responsible for teaching Godís Word to your family. The Lordís plan is to have children learn the purpose and benefits of obedience through a godly mom and dad. This protects little ones from the pain and suffering that sin always causes. In this way, boys and girls develop a solid foundation that will help them to mature into the next generation of godly leaders and role models.

Qoheleth (the Teacher) summarizes Ecclesiastes, his book of godly wisdom, by stating, ďNow all has been heard; here is the conclusion of the matter: Fear God and keep his commandments, for this is the whole duty of every person.Ē (12:13).

A fatherís main goal should be to lead his loved ones by obeying his own heavenly Father. Amen. Like Father; Like Son.

Grace and peace to you,

For Mercy Street Ministries, Iím Stan Baldwin.
