THE UNDENIABLE AND UNFORGETTABLE STRENGTH OF A FATHER. 1

Fathers have had a bad representation of who they are, some say they have more privileges than women, some say women should have equal rights like they have but personally, I think a woman was born to do everything a man is not capable of doing, which makes the two genders equally important.

Fathers act as a shell in a child’s life, fathers are one of the crucial influences for a child along with their mothers. there can be no denial on the fact that fathers are an essential part of our support system.

Along with mothers, who teach us important values and skills. fathers have an impact on relationships that children make as they grow and help in making us who we are today.

A perfect example is carrying a baby in the womb, menstruating, breastfeeding a child, the list goes on. 1corinthians 7: 3&4Let the husband render unto the wife due benevolence: and likewise also the wife unto the husband.

The wife hath not power of her own body, but the husband: and likewise also the husband hath not power of his own body, but the wife.

So many people have complained that the bible gives more power to men than women, I once heard a lecturer say the bible is mysoginistic but there are so many evidences in the bible that shows God respects and loves women so much.

Unlike mothers, fathers keep their love and affection for the children hidden so that they don’t go weak when kids encounter difficult times in life.

Fathers deserve all the love and they deserve to know how much they mean to the kids and the family by celebrating Father’s day.

We are the apple of his eyes, it is one thing to have power and not be aware of it and another thing to be aware of it and not use it positively. No matter how stubborn a man is, there is always a particular woman who influences him even if he denies it.

We know there are a million different types of dads, from the funny dads to the sport-mad dads, from the sentimental dads to the brand-new daddies and they all need celebrating in their own way!https://www.gettingpersonal.co.uk/fathers-day-card-messages

Father’s Day is the one day of the year especially dedicated to the man in your life who has always been there, made you laugh with his ‘dad’ jokes and give you the best (and possibly worst!) advice you could ask for.

Fathers are just amazing, a woman carries a baby for nine months but a father carries the family for a lifetime.

A father is always available to solve everyone’s problems but have we ever taken the opportunity to ask them whether they are ok.

The fact that they don’t talk much about what they are going through, doesn’t mean they don’t need a shoulder to cry on.

When a woman abandons her children and comes back years later to apologise, she is forgiven easily, I call it the nine-month speech but that almost never happens to a man, not to say abandoning your children is good, it obviously an irresponsible behaviour but all am emphasizing on is that who will listen to a man’s plea for mercy, who hears the secrets tears of a man apart from God.

A man almost never gets away with anything that a woman can easily get away with.

They hear things like a man never cries, he should always sacrifice his happiness for that of his family.

No matter how much money a man makes, his family spends 90% of it, stingy men excluded. To every rule there is always an exception, whether male or female, wickedness has no gender. everyone has to be discerning to choose a lifetime partner and the spirit of discernment comes from the good lord. Here are the four types of men:https://www.tyndale.com/sites/readthearc/4-types-of-the-fathers-and-the-one-your-children-need-you-to-be/

The first type of father is the “Failing Father.” This father is absent, unknown, and out of the picture. Did you know we are raising a fatherless generation in our culture? There are many reasons why children don’t have a father in their lives.

It has been said that, each day, 20 million children wake up without a father in their home. Isn’t that devastating? My heart breaks for the fatherless generation that is being raised in our midst.

Studies show that the absence of the father expresses itself in male children in two very different ways: It is linked to increased aggressiveness on one hand, and greater manifestations of effeminacy on the other.

A 1987 study of violent rapists found that 60 percent of them came from single-parent homes.

A Michigan State University study of adolescents who committed homicides found that 75 percent of them were from broken homes. Girls without fathers fare no better.

They become sexually active sooner and are more likely to have out-of-wedlock children. (167-168)

The second type of father is the “Fledgling Father.” The fledgling father is in the home, but his priorities are out of order. He is not tuned in to his children, their needs, or their interests.

He is present and wants to be faithful, but he struggles in this role in a big way. He provides, but he doesn’t connect.

And as a result, there is significant conflict between the father and his children. During one season of my ministry, I spent significant hours counseling a fledgling father.

The conversations were often the same. He would describe conflict, how he just couldn’t get his kids to see things his way, and how he blew up at them.

The desire was there, but the execution lacked significantly. One thing I wanted him to change, but he never did, was the possibility that there was another way to look at things . . . that maybe he was the one who needed to adjust his approach and expectations.

The final category of fathers that I want to look at today and in my next post is the category of the “Father of Faith.” A Father of Faith isn’t just a Faithful Father. He goes beyond that.

A Father of Faith is one who is certain to bring Jesus into his marriage, parenting, work, and hobbies.

The Father of Faith also brings his marriage, parenting, work, and hobbies to Jesus. The Father of Faith seeks continual encounters with Jesus.

Like other dads, Fathers of Faith struggle. But the key to their success is that they bring those struggles to Jesus. The New Testament gives us a picture of a Father of Faith by the name of Jairus. Let’s look at Mark 5:21-24 and 35-36. Take a look at Jairus, this Father of Faith.

21 And when Jesus had crossed again in the boat to the other side, a great crowd gathered about him, and he was beside the sea. 22 Then came one of the rulers of the synagogue, Jairus by name, and seeing him, he fell at his feet 23 and implored him earnestly, saying, “My little daughter is at the point of death. Come and lay your hands on her, so that she may be made well and live.” 24 And he went with him. And a great crowd followed him and thronged about him. . . .

35While he was still speaking, there came from the ruler’s house some who said, “Your daughter is dead. Why trouble the Teacher any further?” 36 But overhearing what they said, Jesus said to the ruler of the synagogue, “Do not fear, only believe.”

What will keep you from being a Father of Faith? For Jairus, it was fear. 

You see, what you didn’t read here, but is in the text, is what happened between verse 24 and verse 35.  While Jesus was on the way, he got interrupted.

He stopped, cared for an unknown woman’s ailment, and healed her. It was during this interruption that Jairus got the word that his only daughter, twelve years of age, had died. But take a second look at Jesus’ words.

Overhearing what they said, Jesus said to the ruler of the synagogue, “Do not fear, only believe.”

Jairus’ struggle is our struggle—the struggle between fear and faith. What fears keep you from being a Father of Faith? Here are five common fears that fathers face.

1. Vulnerability—Men typically don’t like to be vulnerable. It just feels weak. So, to compensate, we put on a mask.

We use a facade; we cover up. And the problem with this is that it affects our ability to relate to God and to others.

It affects relationships and our need to be accountable. But what we must realize is that in our weakness, God becomes strong.

2. Rejection—Here’s how this works: Even if we don’t realize it, we fear being vulnerable because we fear rejection. At home, we fear being rejected by those we love—parents, wife, and kids.

At work, we fear being rejected and passed over for promotions. So, we fail to become the leader God has called us to be—all because of our fear of rejection.

3. Losing Control—This one is a huge problem for men and women! We think, What if my life and relationships don’t turn out the way I want them to? Guys, if you’re anything like I am, you want to “fix it,” right? Men like to fix stuff.

But, what if you can’t fix it? You feel helpless—like you’ve lost control. This is a real fear. We forget that control is an illusion. We were never in control anyway. God always is. And the fear of losing control is grounded in our next fear . .

4. Failure—What if I try and I don’t succeed? We have an inherent fear of not measuring up. We fear making bad decisions or being a poor leader. Our fear of failure is a result of our insecurities and perceived weaknesses.

5. Insignificance—Here’s what this fear looks like: What if I give myself completely to something, and at the end of the day, it doesn’t seem to matter? Am I really making a difference? As a pastor, I struggle with this fear frequently.

But parenting is a work over the long haul. Don’t believe the lie that what you are doing doesn’t matter. In my next post, I’ll get more specific about Jairus’s story and how we, too, can be Fathers of Faith.

For now, spend some time reflecting on what type of father you are and the biggest fears that are keeping you from realizing your potential. What you are doing does matter, and growing as a father is vital in leading your children today.

father absence produces children who grow up to be angry and bitter

We must all be wise in our choice of spouses but how wise can one be without the lord. The old king James bible posits ”the fear of the lord is the beginning of wisdom”.

When it comes to knowing people for who they really are, it takes the spirit of discernment. President Ronald Reagan emphasized the importance of family by telling the Americans that great changes happen at the dinner table.

Every deviant you see in the society came from a family so we all have to choose wisely, you are born a male who will obviously grow up to be a man but it takes a lot of efforts to be a father. happy fathers day. Stay safe and remember. ”we are family”

Here are some beautiful fathers day quotes:

”Behind every great child is a truly amazing father- unknown

”The older I get, the smarter my father seems to get.”- Tim Russert

”A father carries pictures where his money used to be.”- Steve Martin

”I cannot think of any need in childhood as strong as the need for a fathers protection.”- Sigmund Freud https://epaper.timesgroup.com/
