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:
‘Fix these words of mine in your hearts and minds; tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Teach them to your children, talking about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. ‘Deuteronomy 11:18-19
God’s Word is more than enough! God’s love is more than enough! God’s presence is more than enough! So let’s dig into today’s scripture and capture all God has for us from the second telling of the law in from the book of Deuteronomy.
Let’s be the dads who make sure to keep God’s Word top of mind today. Let’s be the dads who fill our hearts and spirit what God’s Word has to say to us! Let’s be the dads who keep God’s Word relevant so that wherever we go, whatever we do, and whatever we say, His Word is like symbols on our hands and imprinted our our foreheads! I remember telling some people that there were times in my life where it was like I had a ticker on my forehead that said “Hi my name is Phil, come and tell me all your problems.” Today let’s be the dads who live our lives where there is a ticker that lets people know we are children of God and share the Word of God with others! Let’s bring God and His Word with us everywhere we go! Let’s be the dads who share the love and goodness f God through His Word with our kids! Let’s be the dads who share the truth of God’s Word in love with our kids when we are home or on the road, when they get up and when they go to bed, so that they too can know God, know God’s Word, and live a life purposed after living a relationship with Him!
