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
