A Father's Faith

" Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward. As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man; so are children of the youth. Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them: they shall not be ashamed, but they shall speak with the enemies in the gate." Psalm 127:3-5

Often in our society, men are under the impression that children are the women's responsibility and that a man's status is somewhat weakened if they show tenderness towards a child. Actually in the above verses we find that well trained children are a source of strength to any man and happy is the man that realizes God's blessing in his children.

These verses, along with many others in the Bible, should help us fathers to be diligent in our responsibility of raising children. Let's determine to be found faithful in our own daily life, as well as in the lives of our children. As Paul writes in Timothy, we should be " ...an example of the believers..." to our children.
