Father’s Day: “Real Dads”

Deuteronomy 11:18-21 NLT

18 So commit yourselves completely to these words of mine. Tie them to your hands as a reminder, and wear them on your forehead.

19 Teach them to your children. Talk about them when you are at home and when you are away on a journey, when you are lying down and when you are getting up again.

20 Write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates,

21 so that as long as the sky remains above the earth, you and your children may flourish in the land the LORD swore to give your ancestors.

Psalm 78:1-7 NLT

1 O my people, listen to my teaching. Open your ears to what I am saying,

2 for I will speak to you in a parable. I will teach you hidden lessons from our past — 

3 stories we have heard and know, stories our ancestors handed down to us.

4 We will not hide these truths from our children but will tell the next generation about the glorious deeds of the LORD. We will tell of His power and the mighty miracles He did.

5 For He issued His decree to Jacob; He gave His law to Israel. He commanded our ancestors to teach them to their children,

6 so the next generation might know them — even the children not yet born — that they in turn might teach their children.

7 So each generation can set its hope anew on God, remembering His glorious miracles and obeying His commands.

Ephesians 6:1-4 NLT

1 Children, obey your parents because you belong to the Lord, for this is the right thing to do.

2 “Honor your father and mother.” This is the first of the Ten Commandments that ends with a promise.

3 And this is the promise: If you honor your father and mother, “you will live a long life, full of blessing.”   

4 And now a word to you fathers. Don’t make your children angry by the way you treat them. Rather, bring them up with the discipline and instruction approved by the Lord.

Colossians 3:21 NLT

21 Fathers, don’t aggravate your children. If you do, they will become discouraged and quit trying.
