Ever had one of those days when the lights on the dashboard of your car light up? I know my old, original version Prius had that happen towards the end of my time owning it. Do you realize there are lights on the dashboard of life too and that anger is one of them? Interestingly enough as we head into the third day of our devotional that is going to be our topic. After searching for a devotional to kick off two days back, searching in the bible.com site for “dad” and scrolled through the many devotionals I have completed then this one just popped out from the scrolling, and here we go. Today’s devotional shares, “Most sin can be traced to one of these seven sins. So, know them. Fight them in your home. Fight them in your heart. Be the example that maybe you didn’t have growing up. You can learn to overcome the sin that’s holding you back.” So let’s take the next week to learn to be ready and prepared to fight them in our homes and hearts!


Scripture from today’s devotional:


‘Whoever is patient has great understanding, but one who is quick-tempered displays folly. ‘

Proverbs 14:29

‘A hot-tempered person stirs up conflict, but the one who is patient calms a quarrel. ‘

Proverbs 15:18

‘Fools give full vent to their rage, but the wise bring calm in the end. ‘

Proverbs 29:11

God’s Word is active and alive! God’s Word is the right place to turn when we are seeking wisdom and direction! God’s Word isn’t our last resort but rather should be our first place to search!


Let’s be the dads who are patient! Let’s be the dads who spend time in God’s Word in order to have understanding and allow the Holy Spirit to keep us from losing it and rather remain patient and calm even when the situation is heated! Let’s be the dads who avoid looking foolish by being quick-tempered! Let’s be the dads who are looking to be peacemakers rather than those who stir up conflict! Let’s be the dads who are patient and calm quarrels rather than hot-tempered and stirring up conflict! Let’s be the dads who can control our temper and as such help keep the situation calm! Let’s be the dads who don’t give full vent to rage because we know it won’t help the situation! Let’s be the dads who are interested in keeping situations calm!
