Honor Our Father

 

 

What’s the best thing a father can do for his children?

 

  • Pay their way
  • Encourage them
  • Love their mother
  • Honor God

I’ll take “honor God” (“all of the above” is also a good choice).

Whether your father honored God or not, you have a choice. Choose wisely.

1 Kings 2:3
Keep the charge of the Lord your God, walking in his ways and keeping his statutes, his commandments, his rules, and his testimonies, as it is written.

      That’s a good question, Kathy. That’s not the best choice of words on my part. I meant financial support. I chose the phrase “pay their way” because I think it can have a negative side–when financial support substitutes for love or personal responsibility. Good parents provide financially for their children’s needs, but not necessarily their every want.

        Good evening….Shirlee….thank you for replying back…& clarifying that 1st option…for me…you explained that perfect for me…thanks….& I agree…back when our older child..
        Chris was in high school…we had him buy a used car..really used…but he was able to pay for it in cash…pretty cheap…so car ins was cheap…for him…& during his senior yr I think while he had this car…he was upset one day…because he would see all these kids come to sch in very nice…elite cars…like Toyota deluxes…etc…& he would say…to. Us..why can’t I have a car like that…instead of this car…& we would tell him nicely but bluntly…you are aware that they are not making the payments nor are they paying the car ins …their parents are..&….when the time comes for them to have to stand on their own two feet & try to do it…they will have major adjustments to make…& buddy you will kind of already have learned to do that…we couldn’t afford to do those things for him…so…he had to pay them himself….& he did a great job..Shirlee….& always has since then…very proud of him….thanks again…for those options…..
