Heart of a father

The Heart of a Father

See how very much our heavenly Father loves us, for He allows us to be called His children, and we really are… I John 3:1 NLT

The Heart of a father is found in the heart of God. In order for a man to be the kind of father that his children need, a man must understand what kind of father God is to his children. Here are four important areas to consider:

Leadership – From a father’s steps, a child needs to see the importance of wise choices and good decisions; from a father’s love, a child needs to discover purpose, identity and true worth.

Care – A man’s work is honorable and is a doorway through which a father helps to express his love and care for his children in practical ways.

Time – Every moment a father spends with his child is another opportunity for good to happen in a child’s life.

Himself – Even greater than a father giving his child the gift of time is when a father gives the gift of himself. A Dad is loved because he give his children the one thing they treasure most – himself.

overcoming

“The marvelous richness of human experience would lose something of rewarding joy if there were no limitations to overcome. The hilltop hour would not be half so wonderful if there were no dark valleys to traverse.”– Helen Keller

“In every adversity there lies the seed of an equivalent advantage. In every defeat is a lesson showing you how to win the victory next time.”–
Robert Collier

Challenge

“Most of the important things in the world have been accomplished by people who have kept on trying when there seemed to be no hope at all.”–                                       Dale Carnegie

“The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands in times of challenge and controversy.”–

Martin Luther King, Jr.
