Instructions for Fathers

Listen to the Message
Ephesians 6:4
Being a father has never been easy. 
“Fathers, do not exasperate your children; instead, bring them up in the training and instruction of the Lord.” ‭‭Ephesians‬ ‭6:4‬ ‭NIV‬‬
1. Be Gentle
  • Exasperate means “to provoke it irritate”, and it means “to make worse”.
2. Be There
  • You have to make your kids a priority. 
  • A father’s attitude must be “do as I do” not just “do as I say”.
  • As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord. Joshua 24:15
  • No amount of success can take the place of the role you play with your children. 
  • When a boy knows that he is important to Dad, he knows that he is important, period. 
  • When a girl knows that she is treasured by her father, she knows that she is a treasure. 
3. Be An Example
  • This means that they need to hear in your words and see in your actions what it means to be a follower of Jesus Christ. 
  • Your kids are following you, where are you leading them?
