Wise Fathers


Proverbs 4:1-14


Not only are fathers to provide for and protect their families, they are also to be spiritual leaders, who wisely guide their families.


If you want to be a wise father;


1. Give Christ first place.


  - Only when a father has a right relationship with the Lord can he have a right relationship with his wife and children.


2. Give a good example.


  - We've all heard that a picture is worth a thousand words.


  - A good example may be more effective than a 100 lectures.


3. Give loving discipline.


  - Proverbs 13:24


  - Proverbs 23:13a  "Do not withhold discipline from a child"


  - Proverbs 29:17


  - Children need limits.


  - Hebrews 12:11
