Calling All Men

huddle

Men.  Who won the Super Bowl?  What driver is leading the points race?  What team is in the lead in the Eastern Conference?  Where is that 9/16″ deep well socket at?  Most guys could answer these questions very quickly.  What about these:  How is your families spiritual grow going?  What Book of the Bible are they reading?  What are their dreams? What is the Lord showing them right now?  Most of us cannot answer this second set as easily.

Here is just a peek into what the Bible has to say bout this:  Ephesians 5:25 Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her.  Ephesians 6:4 Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger, but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord.  Proverbs 22:6 Train up a child in the way he should go…  1 Timothy 3:4 He must manage his household well, with dignity…

I think we can all work on forward progress in leading our homes.  Read the Bible.  Read books.  Listen to podcasts.  Find an example of a godly husband/father and latch on.  Let’s up the prayer for and over our families.  God has called us to be the pastors of our homes. Let’s rise to this calling and lead our families in a manner that is honoring to God!
