Fathers and Faith

Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it (Proverbs 22:6).

Happy Father’s Day to all our dads, grandpas, uncles, and others that help guide us along our earthly walk. God has commanded us to help our children learn of Him and His saving grace. My dad made sure we had daily family devotions and prayers. We lived on a dairy farm and my father would stop milking the cows and walk up to the house to have breakfast and devotions with us as a family. Actions speak louder than words and Dad’s example is something I try to do — daily be in God’s Word.

We are to help educate our children and grandchildren about God’s gift of salvation and in the way He would have us live our lives. An excellent resource to guide you is Train up a Child, a short Bible study found on our LWML website. An important task we have is to help the next generation learn about the saving grace God so richly gives us.
