Facts fathers should know.

13 March 2015, 09:47

As keen researchers have seen first hand the deep hurt and devastation that fatherlessness brings to a child’s life. Our prisons are full of men and women who are lived restlessly after been neglected by their father, wounded by the men who would have loved them the most. Many of these children will follow the pattern of irresponsibility that their fathers did. But so many mothers have sacrifice to this children survival; they were never intending to carry the weight alone. We thank god for them, but research is proving that a child also desperately needs a daddy.

There is no way around this fact. God desire for every fathers is to courage step up and do whatever it takes to be involve in the lives of his children but more than just been there providing for them. Is to work with them through their young lives and be a visual responsibility of the character of God. Their father in heaven. A father should love the children and seek to win their heart; he should protect them, discipline them and teach them about God. He should learn how to work with integrity and treat others with respect, he should call out his children to become responsible men and women to live their lives for what matters in eternity.

As a father you are accountable to God for the position of influence he has given you. You can’t fall asleep with a will only to realize that your job or your habit has no internal value but the souls of your children do. Some men will hear this and agree to it but have to result to live without but there are some men who regardless of the mistakes they make in the past, regardless what their father did not do us will give all the strength for all of our days to loving God for all that we are and to teach our children to follow the footsteps of God.

We are inviting any man whose heart is courageous to join us in this resolution and I hope the decision is already be made, you don’t ask who will take care and guild of your family because by Gods grace, I will, you don’t ask who will teach my son too follow Christ because I will. Who will take the responsibly of providing for my family I Who will ask god to break the chains of destructive pattern in my family history ,I will.

Who will pray for and bless my children to boldly pursue whatever God calls them to do. I will am their father. I accept the responsibility .I want the favour of god and its blessing in my home. Any good wants that. Where are you men of courage, where are you fathers who fears the lord.is time to rise up and answer the call that god gave to you and say .I will, I will, I will. Happy father’s day
