Steadfast Provider

Steadfast Provider – Rock in the Storm – Faithful Father Series

This is post 8 of 8 in the series “Faithful Father” As a father we provide for our children in many ways. It is east to think, ‘Well they have a roof over their head, food in their belly, and clothes on their bodies. I’m doing alright.’ and to a certain extent that is true but the logic is flawed. We provide more than tangible things for our children and… Read More »Steadfast Provider – Rock in the Storm – Faithful Father Series

A Month (or More) in Prayer Journaling

I’ve posted about this on my personal Facebook as well as the Just Hold Fast page and it was something that had been on my mind and heart. I don’t pray enough, or didn’t. I don’t know the barometer of what is ‘enough’ because the Bible tells us to never cease praying (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18). What I do know is it lingered there, in the back of my mind and… Read More »A Month (or More) in Prayer Journaling
Compassion = Benevolent

Compassionate Friendship – Benevolent Bonding – Faithful Father Series

This is post 7 of 8 in the series “Faithful Father” Bonding with our children is so important that the Bible made sure we understood the need to provide benevolent bonding for our children. Proverbs 22:6 tells us what that bonding can lead to. I consider my home an institution and I think that men should look at their own home that way as well. Consider the children you are… Read More »Compassionate Friendship – Benevolent Bonding – Faithful Father Series
God's Authority

Respected Authority – Discipline and Honor – Faithful Father Series

These are easy to delineate but I can guarantee that I, like others struggle with them. The first and absolute authority is God. If you are a Christian and you believe that you are the final authority in your home, you… Read More »Respected Authority – Discipline and Honor – Faithful Father Series
Leading and Prayer

Loving and Leading – A Compassionate Leader – Faithful Father Series

  • by
This is post 5 of 8 in the series “Faithful Father” Leadership is a subjective skill because the base definition of it leaves it as an open-ended trait. Men can posses the ability to lead people in different ways. God has a way of raising up people to lead that others simply never expected. Every married man has a command from God to be leading his family spiritually. We must… Read More »Loving and Leading – A Compassionate Leader – Faithful Father Series
Racism

Racism: Religion and Science Agree, It’s Wrong

  • by
This is a bit of an armchair article so you are welcome to take it with a grain of salt, or a mountain. I can not in good conscience write for a site that believes 100% in God and all he is then ignore the injustice that has occurred in Charlottesville. I’ll approach this from a Biblical point of view and from a scientific one. I think that addressing both… Read More »Racism: Religion and Science Agree, It’s Wrong
Walking the Walk

Walking the Walk – Living Like Christ – Faithful Father Series

This is post 3 of 8 in the series “Faithful Father” You talk the talk but are you walking the walk? It is an age old idiom and as we continue the Faithful Father series we need to move beyond simply talking about God and the work Jesus did to acting upon those words. Our children learn so much from us at home because they spend so much time with… Read More »Walking the Walk – Living Like Christ – Faithful Father Series
