Fathers And Children

Luke 1:17

And he shall go before him the spirit and power of Elias, to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just; to make ready a people prepared for the Lord.

This is the beginning of a five part series on parenting, which includes fathers, the church and pastors, believers following Jesus' model prayer, and the lack of fatherly guidance.

That said fathers are the head of the household, and the wife and children are to be submissive unto him as he submits to the Lord. He is to emulate the moral righteousness of God in teaching his children. The father is to teach the children God's moral laws what is means to obey them as well as the consequences of disobeying them. Fathers who are teaching their sons and daughters godly principles is preparing for God a new generation of believers. This is so that each generation of people will live in holy obedience unto God. Fathers who fail to teach his sons and daughters were a great sin against God's OT people and can be attributed to today's conditions where the children are running amuck. It can also be said the when fathers fail to show and teach love to their sons and daughter, then the children lacks this knowledge and seek love in improper places.

Fathers, you are an important figure in the lives of your children as they are a gift to you from God. Therefore, love them, pray for them, instruct them in godliness, and lovingly discipline them when needed as God does to you.

Fathers and children are to have a strong bond of love and fellowship with one another as God the Father have with His children/believers. God the Father is the head of our lives, and Jesus Christ makes it complete. Fathers you are the head of the household and the wife makes it complete, and children are the gifts. Children are to obey their parents as believers obey God.

Husbands, wives and children constitute the family.
