Survival Gear for Dads + 7-day Reading Plan by Manhood Journey

Survival Gear for Dads – Day 4

It is amazing to me how quickly time flies and getting to look through various dad devotionals helps me grab hold of and make the most of each day. After a week of grabbing onto Love Slows Down, I did a search to discover what the next devotional series would be and found Survival Gear for Dads | Devotional Reading Plan | YouVersion Bible. Ever found it hard to be a godly dad? Ever found it exhausting to be a godly dad? Ever found it challenging to be a godly dad? Ever found it thrilling to be a godly dad? Ever found it confusing to be a godly dad? Ever found it rewarding to be a godly dad? As today’s devotional tells us “Being a godly father is an exhausting, challenging, thrilling, dangerous, confusing, and rewarding endeavor. It’s both a place you are and a journey you’re on. It’s a destination you arrive at and a process of becoming.” I am excited to get to read another devotional from the Manhood Journey and to read that this plan “will help you gear up for the journey, get a sense of where you are right now, and what steps to take next.” So let’s get into it and see what we can learn and what tools we can add to our toolbelt to be a part of our survival gear for this journey of being a godly dad!


Let’s check out our scriptures for today’s devotional:


A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for a time of adversity.

Proverbs 17:17

As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another.

Proverbs 27:17

Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.

John 15:13

God’s Word is alive and active and is able to meet us right where we are at. So let’s make sure we spend time in God’s Word in order to hear what He has to say. Allow God to lead and guide you in the ways you should go and how to study His Word. This year I have mixed things up and instead of going through a devotional that brings me through the Bible in a year, I am working my way through devotionals on the theme of dad.

Let’s be the dads who love our fellow brothers in prosperity and adversity! Let’s be the dads who love our fellow brothers and will stick with them and give them a hand up if and when adversity comes their way! Let’s be the dads who love our wives and our kids and support and encourage them through adversity! Let’s be the dads who have a legacy of love, unconditional love for our wives, our kids, and the people God brings across our paths!

Let’s be the dads who are willing to lean in and have the tough conversations with our wives, our kids, and the people God brings across our path because we know that it will allow both parties to be sharpened! Let’s be the dads who are willing to connect and have contact, even if and when it hurts in order to help our wives, our kids, and the people God brings across our path so that we can sharpen one another, even if it may hurt at the moment! Let’s be the dads who love our wives, our kids, and our God intimately!

Let’s be the dads who love our wives, our kids, and the people God brings across our path sacrificially! Let’s be the dads who love sacrificially and are willing to give! Let’s be the dads who love our wives, our kids, and the people God brings across our path as Jesus has loved us! Let’s be the dads who love unconditionally, intimately, and sacrificially for the glory of God!
