Just For Dads: Be A Positive Christian Role Model

Just For Dads: Be A Positive Christian Role Model – Day 7

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“.


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


‘The vision of Obadiah. This is what the Sovereign Lord says about Edom— We have heard a message from the Lord: An envoy was sent to the nations to say, “Rise, let us go against her for battle”— “See, I will make you small among the nations; you will be utterly despised. The pride of your heart has deceived you, you who live in the clefts of the rocks and make your home on the heights, you who say to yourself, ‘Who can bring me down to the ground?’ Though you soar like the eagle and make your nest among the stars, from there I will bring you down,” declares the Lord. ‘

Obadiah 1:1-4

‘All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.’ (2 Timothy 3:16-17) So let’s be the dads who study God’s Word! Let’s be the dads who spend time in God’s Word! Let’s be the dads who receive teaching from God’s Word! Let’s be the dads who receive rebuking from God’s Word! Let’s be the dads who receive correcting from God’s Word! Let’s be the dads who receive training in righteousness from God’s Word! Let’s be the dads who are thoroughly equipped for every good work!

Let’s be the dads who walk our lives humbly for we know that when we humble ourselves, under God’s mighty hand, He will lift us up in due time! Let’s be the dads who choose to live humbly because we know that pride comes before the fall! Let’s be the dads who choose to live humbly because we know that a prideful heart brings deception! Let’s be the dads who choose to live humbly because we know that walking in pride and arrogance opens the door to being humbled and brought down!
