6 Biblical Traits of a Godly Dad

Today we get to continue digging into the traits of a godly dad. It’s interesting to just go with whatever the search results provide as the devotional to dig into. Today’s devotional from Bible.com is looking to empower us to be the dads. Today’s devotional from Bible.com is looking to help us address our feelings of inadequacy by providing us with the traits we need to be the dads. Today’s devotional from Bible.com is looking to help us get out of the starting blocks and into the race by sharing 6 biblical traits we need to model in our own lives in order to be the dads God created and purposed for us to be. So let’s dig in deeper as we jump into this new devotional in order to be able to learn and practice what God’s prepared in advance as good works for us to accomplish. Let’s grab a hold of these traits in order for us to be the dads, the godly dads we need to be for our wives, our kids, and our world.

Today’s devotional connects with the following verses:

‘Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters, ‘

Colossians 3:23

‘If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you. ‘

James 1:5

‘The way of fools seems right to them, but the wise listen to advice. ‘

Proverbs 12:15

‘Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.’

Matthew 6:34

I am so thankful that God’s Word is alive and available to me daily. I am so thankful that God knows what I need before I even ask. I am so thankful that God’s Word never returns void. So I reach out to Him today as it begins and I prepare for an amazing reunion with my daughter after months of her being off at boot camp and getting to watch her graduate today.

So as we prepare for today let’s be the dads who remember that what we are to do isn’t for the pleasure or joy of man but rather for the purposes and the plans of God! Let’s be the dads who aren’t interested in pleasing man more than pleasing God! So let’s be the dads whose work is done with all of our hearts because we want to make it a pleasing aroma and offering to God as we are living sacrifices to Him. Let’s be the dads who are more interested in glorifying our Heavenly Father who created us with the gifts and talents to get it done.

Let’s choose to be the dads who when we don’t know what to do, we do what we know to do and so invite Jesus into our very situation asking Him for wisdom to help us get done His plan and His purpose for His glory! Let’s ask for wisdom with confidence knowing that He will give it to us without finding fault! Let’s ask for wisdom confident that He will give it to us generously!

Let’s choose to be the dads who aren’t so prideful we aren’t willing to listen. Let’s be the dads who can take and even receive advice and feedback that will help us become better for the glory of God. Let’s be the dads who want to be the best version of ourselves possible and as such don’t think we have all the answers and so seek God’s wisdom and surround ourselves with godly men who can keep us accountable and help us to be the dads God created and purposed for us to be.

So it’s today! This is the day that the Lord has made so let’s rejoice and be glad in it! Let’s not be worrying or get anxious about tomorrow because tomorrow isn’t guaranteed, yesterday is gone, so let’s make the most of today as it will have enough things to keep us busy. Let tomorrow worry about itself! In this world we will have trouble and so will today but take heart because Jesus has overcome the world! Let’s be the dad who live out our today to the full as God has purposed and planned, trusting in Him, leaning on Him rather than our own understanding and allowing God to make our path straight!
