Becoming A Connected Father–Day 6

Ever wondered what the best way to stay connected is? Ever considered the importance of unity both in your marriage as well as in your family? Ever chosen to live your life in a way that nurtures and builds unity? Ever resisted doing or saying things that would cause or create division? With change being one of the only constants in life, are you ready to use change to help you stay united?

It’s always so interesting to get to read one of the devotionals from Manhood Journey and how they speak to men and especially dads. 

As I consider the reality of the importance of being the dad God created me to be for my wife’s sake, my kids’ sake, and this world’s sake, living life as Jesus purposed to the full, more abundantly, and without regrets comes to mind. God created us for relationships! God created us to be in a relationship with Him, God created us to be in a relationship with our wives, God created us to be in a relationship with our kids, and God created us to be in a relationship with others! So let’s be the dads who choose to live connected lives so that by being connected with God we can allow God’s love, plan, and purpose to flow into us and through us into the lives of our wives, our kids, and our world!

So with my usual search for the word “dad” and scrolling through a couple of pages, today’s devotional is going to be “Becoming A Connected Father” from Manhood Journey!

Today’s Scriptures from the Devotional:

‘ Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and shall become united and cleave to his wife, and they shall become one flesh. [Matt. 19:5; I Cor. 6:16; Eph. 5:31-33.]’

Genesis 2:24

‘ For the Word that God speaks is alive and full of power [making it active, operative, energizing, and effective]; it is sharper than any two-edged sword, penetrating to the dividing line of the breath of life (soul) and [the immortal] spirit, and of joints and marrow [of the deepest parts of our nature], exposing and sifting and analyzing and judging the very thoughts and purposes of the heart.’

Hebrews 4:12

Are you ready to read God’s Word? Are you ready to hear God’s Word? Are you ready to listen to God’s Word? Are you ready to understand God’s Word? Are you ready to implement God’s Word? Are you ready to apply God’s Word?

Let’s be the dads who are united with our wives! Let’s be the dads who don’t allow anything to come between us and our wives! Let’s be the dads who won’t allow anyone to come between us and our wives! Let’s be the dads who are united with our wives because the two have become one! Let’s be the dads who let go of the past and cling to and unite with our wives! Let’s be the dads who exemplify to our kids what unity in marriage and love in marriage looks like by modeling it daily!

Let’s be the dads who turn to God’s Word because we know that it is alive and full of power! Let’s be the dads who meditate and study God’s Word because we know that it is what we need in order to be and live lives that are active, operative, energizing, and effective! Let’s be the dads who turn to God’s Word to help cut through the craziness, the chaos, the contention, and the conflicts because God’s Word is sharper than any two-edged sword, penetrating the dividing line of the breath of life (soul) and the immortal spirit, and of joints and marrow of the deepest parts of our nature, exposing and sifting and analyzing and judging the very thoughts and purposes of the heart. Let’s be the dads who want the truth to help bring unity to our marriages and families and use God’s Word to make it a reality!
