Eyes On Jesus - 14-day discernment devotional By Tim Ferrara from Discerning Dad

Eyes on Jesus – Day 9

As we head into this day, let’s focus on today, let’s be present with our wives, our kids, and everyone else we will be with today. Let’s focus on them and hear them rather than listening to respond, let’s listen to them in order to understand. Let’s keep our eyes on Jesus and allow the Holy Spirit to help us with responding and answering and put our focus on being present, listening, and understanding.


Scripture from Today’s Devotional:

‘And this I pray, that your love may abound more and more [displaying itself in greater depth] in real knowledge and in practical insight, so that you may learn to recognize and treasure what is excellent [identifying the best, and distinguishing moral differences], and that you may be pure and blameless until the day of Christ [actually living lives that lead others away from sin]; ‘

Philippians 1:9-10

God’s Word speaks to us right where we are at. God’s Word is active and alive! God’s Word even though we may have read that chapter or that verse many times is able to speak to us today something we missed before. Let’s make time to and take time to hear from God through His Word!

Let’s be the dads who love our wives, our kids, and those that God brings across our paths. Let’s be the dads who spend time with Jesus in order to be filled with the fountain of life and then are able to overflow love into the lives of others! Let’s be the dads who radiate and outpour love into the lives of our wives, our kids, and our world! Let’s be the dads who share what love really is from what we have learned in and through God and His Word! Let’s be the dads who share what love really is in a practical way so that our wives, our kids, and our world know that we do love them! Let’s be the dads who are looking, listening, and praying so that we can recognize and treasure what is excellent, by being able to identify what is best and distinguish between moral differences! Let’s be the dads who meditate on God’s Word, lean in on and draw closer to God so that we can become more and more like Jesus and become pure and blameless until the day of His return! Let’s be the dads who live our lives in ways that draw people away from sin and towards God!
