Just For Dads: Be A Positive Christian Role Model

Just For Dads: Be A Positive Christian Role Model – Day 14

Yesterday’s takeaway was about the dangers of pride, titled “Help yourself to everything“! 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 Devotionals Scripture:


‘Do not rebuke an older man harshly, but exhort him as if he were your father. Treat younger men as brothers, older women as mothers, and younger women as sisters, with absolute purity. Give proper recognition to those widows who are really in need. But if a widow has children or grandchildren, these should learn first of all to put their religion into practice by caring for their own family and so repaying their parents and grandparents, for this is pleasing to God. The widow who is really in need and left all alone puts her hope in God and continues night and day to pray and to ask God for help. But the widow who lives for pleasure is dead even while she lives. Give the people these instructions, so that no one may be open to blame. Anyone who does not provide for their relatives, and especially for their own household, has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever. ‘

1 Timothy 5:1-8

Do you realize the importance of God’s Word? Do you realize the value of God’s Word? Do you realize how having a solid foundation makes a huge difference in being able to build a good life? Do you realize how having a firm foundation allows you to stand firm through the storms and the waves, the troubles and the trials, and the wind and whatever comes your way? So let’s be the dads who build our lives upon God’s high standards given to us through His Word!


Let’s be the dads who lead by example and treat older men with respect, not rebuking harshly but rather exhorting as if he were your father! Let’s be the dads who treat younger men like brothers! Let’s be the dads who treat older women like mothers! Let’s be the dads who treat younger women as sisters! Let’s be the dads who do all of this with absolute purity! Let’s be the dads who put our religion into practice by caring for our own family and repaying our parents and grandparents in a way that will please God! Let’s be the dads who demonstrate our religion as defined as true religion by taking care of widows and orphans! Let’s be the dads who provide for our relatives! Let’s be the dads who provide for our household! Let’s be the dads who provide in order to not be found denying our faith and being considered worth than an unbeliever!
