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

Survival Gear for Dads – Day 6

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:


‘ “Whoever can be trusted with very little can also be trusted with much, and whoever is dishonest with very little will also be dishonest with much. ‘

Luke 16:10

‘No one should seek their own good, but the good of others. ‘

1 Corinthians 10:24

‘Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.” ‘

Hebrews 13:5

God’s Word is so incredible. It’s trustworthy throughout the generations! It’s unfailing and never changing! God’s Word is the same yesterday, today, and forever! God is the same yesterday, today, and forever! So let’s grab hold of what His Word tells us today!

Let’s be the dads who can be trusted! Let’s be the dads who are trustworthy no matter how much or how little we are given to take care of! Let’s be the dads who aren’t dishonest! Let’s be the dads who aren’t dishonest with even a little because it will point to a problem in our hearts and so put up barriers to getting trusted with much!

Let’s be the dads who are seeking the good of our wives! Let’s be the dads who are seeking the good of our kids! Let’s be the dads who are seeking the good of all those God brings into our lives! Let’s be the dads who aren’t selfish or self-seeking! Let’s be the dads God created, purposed, and plans for us to be and become!

Putting all of these together, let’s be the dads who are good stewards and demonstrate good stewardship!
