Maximized Manhood with Lonnie Barker - A 7-day devotional reading plan - Manhood - Marriage - Ministry

Maximized Manhood – Day 2

Yesterday we found an incredible devotional for us to go through together. So I am excited to dig a bit deeper today and see what we can receive and learn through God’s Word and this devotional today!

Today’s devotional is described as follows:

If there ever was a time for men to show up and rewrite the narrative of what it means to be a man of integrity, a good husband and a better father, that time is now. The fad of the absentee Dad is outdated, and we as men have to step up to the plate and be the fathers, husbands and leaders God has called us to be.

Scripture from Today’s Devotional:

‘But those who won’t care for their relatives, especially those in their own household, have denied the true faith. Such people are worse than unbelievers. ‘

1 Timothy 5:8

‘And God will generously provide all you need. Then you will always have everything you need and plenty left over to share with others. As the Scriptures say, “They share freely and give generously to the poor. Their good deeds will be remembered forever.” For God is the one who provides seed for the farmer and then bread to eat. In the same way, he will provide and increase your resources and then produce a great harvest of generosity in you. Yes, you will be enriched in every way so that you can always be generous. And when we take your gifts to those who need them, they will thank God. ‘

2 Corinthians 9:8-11

I find it so important to start my day in God’s Word. Be the verse of the day like “Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins.” 1 PETER 4:8 (NIV)! Be it going through a reading plan like today. Spending time meditating on God’s Word is key to helping me get my day started on the right foot and getting filled up to overflowing by God for all He has planned for my day! God’s Word is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path! God’s Word can cut through the crazy to get to the core of the matter! And even today as there is a national election outcome being reported, receiving God’s Word first that tells me to above all, love each other deeply because love covers a multitude of sins is a powerful message to receive even before looking for or finding out what happened!

Let’s be the dads who care for our relatives! Let’s be the dads who care for our wives and kids! Let’s be the dads who receive and proclaim the truth! Let’s be the dads who love our wives and our kids and serve them so that we don’t behave worse than unbelievers!

Let’s be the dads who trust God to generously provide all our needs! Let’s be the dads who choose to be generous, not out of compulsion but out of love and desire, but as cheerful givers! Let’s be the dads who are being so cheerful with our generosity because we know that we will always have everything you need and plenty left over to share with others! Let’s be the dads who share freely and give generously to the poor! Let’s be the dads whose good deeds will be remembered forever! Let’s be the dads who realize that God is the one who provides seed for the farmer and then bread to eat and that we are supposed to sow the seeds and eat the bread! Let’s be the dads who realize that in the same way, God will provide and increase our resources and then produce a great harvest of generosity in us! Let’s be the dads who when we take our gifts to those who need them, we will witness that they will thank God!
