WHAT IS A FATHER?


The representation of a real father is often skewed in our culture. So here are some affirming and encouraging truths about fathers.

  1. A Father Loves with a deep abiding love. He is gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and rich in affection.

  2. A Father is Faithful and always committed to those he loves. An anchor that will hold you and a rock on which you can stand. He is dependable and reliable.

  3. A Father is Truthful and will give it to you straight - however it will be in the way he determines best.

  4. A Father is Supportive giving encouragement and help anyway he can. "A father's encouragement is the greatest motivational tool on earth" - Andrea Garney

  5. A Father is Patient and Understanding who listens and shows mercy and gives forgiveness when required.

  6. A Father is Strong and Courageous going in front of his family right into danger. "Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be men of courage; be strong" (1 Cor 16:13) Just like our Heavenly Father our fathers will fight for us and protect us.

  7. A Father Gives of Himself - his time, his energy, his finances, and his love. "The desires of the diligent are fully satisfied." Proverbs 13:4
