The Seasons of Fatherhood

  • Weekly Reflection - Epheisans_2:3  - Proverbs_6:20  - Mark_10:45  - 2Samuel_1:26  - Acts_20:32 
  • A  man’s life can be the pursuit of success. True success is the taming the flesh and channeling desires into creativity that God has given us.  That takes discipline and support. Understanding a father’s authority is to understand wisdom resulting in the blessing for God’s glory. That is an unselfish pursuit.  When we concentrate on ‘self’ we shamefully move away from the cross of Jesus. Knowing Christ faced the ultimate sorrow so we don’t have to should change our pursuits in life and free our creative minds. Further, knowing we are an heir to paradise, simply by our faith in the confession of Jesus Christ, will transcend anything the world can ever attempt to match. 
  • Monday - among whom we all once lived in the passions of our flesh, carrying out the desires of the body and the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, like the rest of mankind- Eph_2:3  - Through  Christ, we are brought near, made part of the foundation of his holy temple.
  •      Portrait of me small Tuesday   - My son keep your father's commandment, and forsake not your mother's teaching. - Pro_6:20  - Adultery turns its back on parental instruction and leads a man into a path of punishment, shame and revenge.
  • Wednesday – For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many." - Mar_10:45  - In God’s kingdom service comes with a price, especially to our egos
  • Thursday -   I am distressed for you, my brother Jonathan; very pleasant have you been to me; your love to me was extraordinary, surpassing the love of women. - 2Sa_1:26  - David’s grief over Saul’s death show a compassion and grace for God’s anointed
  • Friday - And now I commend you to God and to the word of his grace, which is able to build you up and to give you the inheritance among all those who are sanctified. - Act_20:32  - The finality of God’s purpose separates disciples physically, yet united in spirit through Christ Jesus
