7 Sins Of A Disengaged Dad: 7 Day Bible Reading Plan

7 Sins Of A Disengaged Dad: 7 Day Bible Reading Plan – Day 4

Are you looking for wisdom in the Proverbs? Are you seeking direction in the Proverbs? Are you searching for discernment in the Proverbs? After searching for a devotional to kick off three 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!


Scriptures from Today’s Devotional:


‘Go to the ant, you sluggard; consider its ways and be wise! It has no commander, no overseer or ruler, yet it stores its provisions in summer and gathers its food at harvest. How long will you lie there, you sluggard? When will you get up from your sleep? A little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to rest— and poverty will come on you like a thief and scarcity like an armed man.’

Proverbs 6:6-11

‘Lazy hands make for poverty, but diligent hands bring wealth. He who gathers crops in summer is a prudent son, but he who sleeps during harvest is a disgraceful son.’

Proverbs 10:4-5

‘A sluggard’s appetite is never filled, but the desires of the diligent are fully satisfied. ‘

Proverbs 13:4

We need to spend time in God’s Word that is alive and active! We need to spend time reading and listening to God’s Word so that we know God’s will! We need to make time to wait on God and listen to how God’s Word is speaking to us and how we should and need to respond! Let’s find a way to spend time in God’s Word and then apply it in our lives!


Let’s be the dads who work as unto the Lord so that we accomplish His plans and His will even when we aren’t being watched by others! Let’s be the dads who work hard and for God’s purpose so that we are like a light shining on a hill directing people to God! Let’s be the dads who work hard to train our kids to be successful in God’s will and God’s way! Let’s be the dads who consider the wise ways of the ants in order to understand the seasons of life and the work require to be done in each so that we can be successful! Let’s be the dads who are diligent in the work we do! Let’s be the dads who avoid the pitfalls of being lazy in order to avoid poverty! Let’s be the dads who is prudent so that we won’t disgrace our families! Let’s be the dads who are diligent in order to be satisfied!
