Just For Dads: Be A Positive Christian Role Model

Just For Dads: Be A Positive Christian Role Model – Day 11

Yesterday’s takeaway was about the dangers of pride, titled “The bride wore black“! I found a devotional that was a bit longer and that sounded powerful as a message so that it could help us learn and become the dads God created and purposed for us to be. So I chose “Just For Dads: Be A Positive Christian Role Model” because, over 21 days, we will get to read and learn about how to be a positive Christian role model for our family! Over 21 days, we will get to learn about topics like: “self-discipline, love, patience, and much more
! This devotional will not only help us be the dads but it will also help us “in our day-to-day life to show our children what it truly means to be a role model and follower of Christ in every sense“.


Today’s Scripture Reading:


‘In reply Jesus said: “A man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, when he was attacked by robbers. They stripped him of his clothes, beat him and went away, leaving him half dead. A priest happened to be going down the same road, and when he saw the man, he passed by on the other side. So too, a Levite, when he came to the place and saw him, passed by on the other side. But a Samaritan, as he traveled, came where the man was; and when he saw him, he took pity on him. He went to him and bandaged his wounds, pouring on oil and wine. Then he put the man on his own donkey, brought him to an inn and took care of him. The next day he took out two denarii and gave them to the innkeeper. ‘Look after him,’ he said, ‘and when I return, I will reimburse you for any extra expense you may have.’ “Which of these three do you think was a neighbor to the man who fell into the hands of robbers?” The expert in the law replied, “The one who had mercy on him.” Jesus told him, “Go and do likewise.”’

Luke 10:30-37

God knows what we are going through and the help we need! God doesn’t want us to worry but rather that we cast our care upon Him! God’s Word meets us right where we are at and speaks right into our very situation! Let’s be the dads who pause to hear from God and His Word!

Let’s be the dads who help those in need no matter where they are from and what they look like! Let’s be the dads who won’t ignore and walk by someone in need by crossing the street in order to avoid them! Let’s be the dads who won’t cross the street because we think we are too busy or too important to help! Let’s be the dads who see someone in need and help! Let’s be the dads who see someone in trouble and help! Let’s be the dads who see someone in trouble and have compassion for them and go to them to help! Let’s be the dads who see someone needing help and help! Let’s be the dads who will be called good because of our actions like the Samaritan who we read about who is described as the Good Samaritan! Let’s be the dads who are good neighbors so that we live loving our neighbors as ourselves!
