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.
