Test: Romans 2:17-29.
“You then who teach others, do you not teacher yourself? While you preach against stealing, do you steal? verse 21. A father cannot properly discipline his children unless he first learns how to govern himself. As a father, how can you stop your children from coming home late when you yourself are a problem and cause for concern in your whole family, especially to your dear wife when you come home late every night without due reason. Family members want to be with you but you are always out with “ the boys”.
God has entrusted hope and blessing in the hands of fathers, however, if not handled well these can easily turn into a curse and plague for the next generation.
Reflect on verse 21, what is God teaching in this verse? Any area to repent? How are you going to apply it to your life?
Father, in the name of Jesus Christ help me to be a good example to my family. I pray that I will be a hero to my children. Amen.
