UNCOMMEN: Dads 2 – Day 4


Happy to have found another devotional by UNCOMMEN that will last 2 more days. This is a sequel to the first UNCOMMEN Dad’s devotional and will look to challenge us to be better dads, better Christians, and better men! This devotional will do so by tackling subjects like effort, trust, consistency, and more. I am excited to see Jesus in and through this devotional and how He can and will infuse us with life-changing power to make us become UNCOMMEN Dads!

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

Proverbs 13:24

Let’s be the dads who use discipline to teach our kids life lessons!

Let’s be the dads who use the Bible to help interpret the meaning of the Bible!
