Raise Him To Love God
There is a need for us to rethink what it means to be a father. A Father is not just someone who helps to bring a child into the world. He is not even a male body who comes home at night, a provider or a bill payer. A great father is all of these things plus a role model and servant leader. This calls for a huge level of sacrifice. This calls for a huge commitment to Christ
What is the job of the Father when it comes to raising a son? The mandate can be found in Deuteronomy 6.
Deut 6:5 Love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength.
6 These commandments that I give you today are to be upon your hearts.
7 Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.
8 Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads.
9 Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates.
Today’s home is providing the wrong things; things that are perpetuating the immaturity of adolescence. We are no longer raising our children to become adult leaders. We are raising our children to conform to the patterns of this world and its materialism.
Remember, America won’t be changed by the white House, the beginning of true change for America can only be started in your house!
