In June we have a Sunday set aside to honor fathers. Honorable fathers are men of good character and are a vital necessity for a healthy society. Honoring fathers is an important brick in the family which is foundational to any society. Fathers are here to defend, provide, and cherish their wives and children.
Honor Fathers Especially –
Respectable Fathers – A Vital Necessity
History and statistics show us that one of the major factors in the break down of our society is homes without fathers. It is especially hitting black families a stunning blow. But any home without a father suffers. Husbands and wives, men and women, are both necessary in the family.
The pattern for fathering is passed from one generation to the next. A sad reality is since mothers and fathers both have gone into the workforce, too many children are raising themselves.
Dependable Fathers – Half of A United Unit
It is a crime against society to drive a wedge between men and women when the two genders need to unite. Our society and our children depend on good homes. A single parent home shouldn’t be a common happening.
Women need to acknowledge that no one can do it all. We are told we can have a career, be a mother, and juggle all the items flying through the air, and we don’t need a husband. But the truth is, we just cannot do it by ourselves. We honor fathers as part of our recognition of that fact.
Moral Fathers – Scriptural Basic
Even if we could keep everything flying that still isn’t the way God meant for homes to operate. God planned for families to have a father and a mother.
As we are told in scriptures, fathers are to raise their children in the nurture and admonition of the Lord. Those that do become worthy of their children’s obedience when God says “Honor fathers”.
Why Honor Fathers?
It is important to honor men. The traits that make men manly are the ones that make them good fathers. Our society is in dire need of men of good character to step up and be honorable fathers. Honor fathers to encourage a healthy society.
“Honour thy father and mother; (which is the first commandment with promise;) That it may be well with thee, and thou mayest live long on the earth. And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.” (Ephesians 6:2-4 KJV)
