Chosen: You’ve been called to Be The Dads! Ready?

God has chosen you to be the dads

As a father, embrace your divine responsibility to guide your children in the ways of God. You have been chosen to lead them down the path of righteousness and steadfastly ensure their growth along it. As a husband, actively set a powerful example and diligently provide for your family, mirroring God’s provision for us all. Remember, this sacred duty demands your utmost dedication and seriousness.

You are a chosen people

Today’s Verse of the Day:

But you are A CHOSEN RACE, A royal PRIESTHOOD, A CONSECRATED NATION, A [special] PEOPLE FOR God’s OWN POSSESSION, so that you may proclaim the excellencies [the wonderful deeds and virtues and perfections] of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light.

1 Peter 2:9 AMP

Firstly, let’s choose to be dads who live as a royal priesthood, consecrated to God, and owned by Him. Secondly, let’s actively receive His Word and promises and boldly proclaim His excellence. Finally, let’s actively praise His wonderful deeds, virtues, and perfection in the light, honoring and glorifying Him!

So how can we apply today’s verse of the day to model for our kids that we are all chosen by God?
