My kind of Father

My father so loves, ever willing to do all it takes to see that his children are well provided for. When I was growing up, I used to see my dad as very wicked, too much of a disciplinarian, he is the kind of dad that always want to know what you are doing, who you are with, where you are going or coming from, what you did at school, he never was one to spare the rod. As times goes on, I finally begin to understand that he that the father loves he chastise. His kind of father has made me the kind of person I am today. I honestly can tell you I am proud of whom my father has raised me to be.

Daddy, here is saying Thanks for being my dad; I LOVE YOU with all of my heart.

The most valuable legacy a father can leave his children is the legacy of being an upstanding citizen of God’s kingdom both in heaven and on earth. As fathers, your love can make or mar a child; it is your ability to proof your love in all areas of your child’s life, especially when they are good/bad, right or wrong that decides who they will be. Do not withhold your love from them; it is more difficult to raise kids nowadays than before the advents of Internet, computer and technology in general.

As a father, you need to be committed to your children, Be an active listener, know your children inside out, equip them spiritually, be consistent in your attitude and behavior towards them, protect them, provide for all their needs and most importantly love their mother, don’t ever abuse or beat up your wife as this may affect your children both emotionally and psychologically and change their opinion of you.

Finally, be a relevant father, don’t be absent when your children need you, don’t be lacking also in your responsibility towards them, and be fit for your children to mentor. Knowing how much they shall learn from you, scorn places where loose men wallow, be a father that your children will be proud of.

Peace and Love of God.
