Maximized Manhood – Day 4

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

As today begins and the idea in my mind is finishing the week strong, I am excited to get to see what today’s devotional is going to bring us. I have so enjoyed Lonnie’s sharing of Protector, Provider, and Priest and can’t wait to see where today will bring us. Lonnie’s post and video combo is a great one-two punch to help us connect with him and the topic of the day.

Let’s be the dads who are ready to dig in and dig deeper in order to be the men, the husbands, and the dads were are called to be! Let’s be the dads who turn to God to help us see gaps to fill and weaknesses to strengthen! Let’s be the dads who pursue becoming the dads God created, called, and purposed for us to be!

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 The fad of the absentee Dad is outdated, and we as men have to step up to the plate and be the fathers, husbands and leaders God has called us to be.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:

‘Good people leave an inheritance to their grandchildren, but the sinner’s wealth passes to the godly. ‘

Proverbs 13:22

‘Direct your children onto the right path, and when they are older, they will not leave it. ‘

Proverbs 22:6

God’s Word is a lamp unto our feet and a light unto our path! All scripture is God-breathed, God-inspired, and given by divine inspiration! All scripture is useful and profitable for teaching, rebuking, correcting, and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be complete, and fully equipped for every good work. So what better place to kick off and start our day and even this devotional than meditating on God’s Word?

Let’s be the dads who are good people! Let’s be the dads who leave an inheritance and legacy for our kids! Let’s be the dads who turn our lives over to God and receive Jesus into our hearts so that we can be transformed and live our lives to the full for the glory of God! Let’s be the dads who choose to direct our kids on the right path! Let’s be the dads who help our kids know the Lord and build their own personal relationships with Him! Let’s be the dads who desire for our wives, kids, and family to live their lives to the full by living them in a relationship with Jesus!
