I don’t think men realize the influence they have on their kids. They’re to be a representation of Christ and sadly few are. Bravo and God bless those that are.

I agree. Mine was not much in that area, so I never really learned. Screwed up my first family pretty bad, doing better the second time.

First family? Are you divorced?

I’m sorry to hear that. Hope all is well

Oh yeah it is. I’ve learned a few things

It may be just how my reader is seeing the different posts

That’s a great title to make a full post about. You should do it. As a dad myself I had an encounters with a demon asking me what he can give me if I in return would worship him. By the way this happened to me in a dream I had.

Good idea thanks
September 19, 2016 at 12:24
That’s a very good topic that would help lots of dads out there.

Not sure I am qualified honestly…my history is rather checkered in that area. First time I did it, anyway
September 19, 2016 at 13:14
Remember Wally, God doesn’t call the qualified He qualifies the call. By you not being qualified, you are qualified for the task. Glory to the Lord.

Well said friend
Awesome, Wally! Great t-shirt. Satan’s tactic since the dawn of time has been to try and separate men and women. That’s because together and united, we are powerful. Dads are really the first line of defense in a family,so I guess we shouldn’t be surprised that they are so under fire today. But who better to make sure the whole world sees and understands this, then those of us who have felt that loss? So even our checkered pasts can serve a useful purpose.

True that IB
Reality is families tend to go the way Dad goes
You actually shared that on a post I forgot to leave a comment on…my bad …life overwhelmed me and I forgot
September 19, 2016 at 13:54
Oh I wish our society / culture could get the fact that dads are so very integral to children growing up with sound and healthy self esteems—being 100% focused on their families—maybe then the divorce rate, suicide rate, teen pregnancy rate…the explosion in non traditional growth in family rates would all turn around if our dads would all get that being husband, dad….is primary!!
September 19, 2016 at 14:48
Yep…and that they need to STAY
September 19, 2016 at 15:06
It’s that whole ‘man up’ to responsibility notion—
a notion that has been allowed to become oh so passé, as manning up is now a faux pas as it is so utterly politically incorrect to dare say and responsibility….well it is all just so yesterday…..
will someone hit everyone on the head who ascribes to such dribble—oh that would be the majority of our western society!!!!
September 19, 2016 at 15:50
Heck I even got that part right the first time
September 19, 2016 at 14:50
Wally, this is very accurate.
September 19, 2016 at 15:51
Thank you Steve it is huh
Been there some

Reblogged this on A Mom Looking Up and commented:
Oh wow, this is so, so true! It is obviously working, too! Not only are there dead beat dads in the general sense, but men seem to be slacking in the areas of Biblical church leadership and taking seriously their role as spiritual leader of the home.
September 19, 2016 at 15:49
Thank you for sharing this
September 19, 2016 at 17:33
Wally, some say husbands and fathers should be the “priest” for their family. I wouldn’t use that word but the Lord definitely holds us accountable as the spiritual leaders of our families. With the Lord’s help, I’m trying to better this time around.
September 19, 2016 at 17:41
Yeah Tom I so get that being my second time. I have raised two families.
With you…not sure I would say priest either but we are for sure accountable

Very very true

We see it ever day, don’t we?
September 20, 2016 at 04:42
Yep! This post is one of my concerns as a Pastor…for the dads and the kids who are impacted when the men are astray…

My dad just turned 87 a few days ago, and even though I didn’t know him very well growing up, it was always there, always involved, on board, and now is a dear friend. What a treasure fathers are meant to be!
September 20, 2016 at 17:08
Oh…that is a very nice story. May I ask why you didn’t know him very well?
September 20, 2016 at 17:35
Up and gone waaayy before we were up to school, home at night from a stressful day’s work I suppose, working very hard for us and making decisions based on what was best for his family. The builder gen, you know? Fabulous people, and thankfully have gotten to know him MUCH better as we both grow older!
September 20, 2016 at 18:03
Ah…I get that. Did some of that myself. Yep
September 21, 2016 at 08:21
Great point Wally. As I have said before, the biggest undeserved mission field is the home. As dads are called to be spiritual leaders in the family, get them and…
In modern times Satan is now going after moms too.
