This is a study that i was able to look into, and I've realized the importance of the fathers role in the homes. Their role as dad, leader, helper, encourager, etc. The definition of Father is stated in this way: Father is a man who has beget a child; and with this child he cares for them, protects them and takes full responsibility for that child. He is the source of previsions. Now that we know the definition, we have to emphasize the importance of fathers managing there role and responsibility for that Child. The fathers impact for his child is crucial, and powerful, the most valuable things a father can give to his children is a loving relationship that is interested in who they are, as God created them. Boys:When a boy is growing up the Father will lead him into man hood, hopefully naturally. He will tell him and show him of all the responsibilities he will have in the future. He will show him life and what it is and what is expected from him as a Child of God and a man. There are sever consequences of boys who are not lead into man hood. Here are some: 1. A son my develop an attitude which says. It is all about me and what i want in life. I'm the one who is to get all i want. 2. The son might develop this view for women as slaves. They are to be used. 3. A son's heart might be hardened and not ready for the Lord. These things that are stated are very important to look out for and hopefully over time we will put into effect leading out boys and girls to women hood. Girls: What about daughters? How are we as fathers lead our girls to women hood, how are we to grow them and help them change into an image as God wants them to be? Here are some ways that a father can lead a girl into woman hood: 1. Give her an expression of non-sexual love and affection to your wife so that your daughter may see it and then to you daughter. 2. Let your daughters do feminine things, and lead your daughter to accept and rejoice in God's design of her and bring her to dependence to God. 3. Let your girls see that you are reading the bible and talk to them about what you are reading, challenge them. 4. Give her a vision of godly woman hood etc.
As you can see that boys and girls are different, they have different needs and they listen a different way. The call for the father is this: God entrusted you with the raising up of your son and daughter for the Lord. God gave you this gift to nurture and mature them so that they will be ready to follow Christ and their God. Question... are you doing this? Is this a daily thing that you are undergoing? Think about it. The results on being involved with your children "dads" are amazing when you are involved in their lives. Toys and stuff like that is important to a degree. You son and your daughter want a relationship with you! Do you want your children to grow? Mature? Have a prosperous life? Do you want them to be safe? and have a good head on them that knows what is right and what is wrong? Dad's you play a very important role in the family. Remember that your children look up to you for strength when they are down, they look to you for encouragement to stay strong and head long! Think about it... and see what you need to change for the sake of your children.
