Wise Fathers Are Like Christ
“Where do I belong?” is our sermon series as we are walking through the book of Ephesians. It also is a question of balancing the roles of being a follower of Jesus while at the same time the everyday life of work and home. Ephesians gives us deeply practical advice on church, marriage, parenting, forgiveness and much more all while exalting the sovereignty of God. The advice is rooted deeply in how our great God loves us in the same way.
This week we walk through Ephesians 6:1-4 where the passage singles out fathers not in praise but rather a sober warning, not some well-deserved special recognition but rather a statement of enormous God-given responsibility. When fathers break down, when we misrepresent God, our children suffer, a point so obvious as to not need elaboration.
Our Soul Tattoo for the week is “Children will imitate us in life before they will ever do what we tell them to do.”
