Fathers

Fathers are the most powerful men in the world.

Far more powerful than any super hero, the President or the richest man on earth.

They possess the power to encourage, shape and mold their sons into men.

They possess the power to kill dreams, steal innocence, and destroy a boy’s manhood.

No matter his age, a son looks to his father for wisdom, assurance and the bestowing of masculinity.

When a father abandons his son and fathering becomes nothing more than a monthly child support payment,

Fear takes root in a boy’s heart, assurance is lost and masculinity is replaced with insecurity.

Fathers are the most powerful men in the world.

    Definitely.

    This is crucial.

    Rom. 8:14-17
    “…because those who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God. For you did not receive a spirit that makes you a slave again to fear, but you received the Spirit of sonship. And by him we cry, “Abba, Father!” The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God’s children. Now if we are children, then we are heirs — heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory.”

    I love you man.

    THIS IS SO TRUE AND THE PAIN NEVER STOPS. AS A MOTHER OF TWO SONS WITHOUT A FATHER. WE CLUNG TO THE VERSE THAT GOD IS THE FATHER OF THE FATHERLESS. THE ONE THING I FOUND OUT WAS I COULD TAKE CARE AND LOVE MY SONS, BUT I COULD NOT BE A DAD. I HOPE GOD HAS SOME SPECIAL PUNISHMENT FOR MEN, WHO WALK OUT AND DESTROY THEIR SONS. THE THING THAT HURTS SO MUCH IS THEY DON’T EVEN CARE ABOUT THE DAMAGE THEY HAVE DONE. MAY GOD BE WITH YOU, JAMES, AND CONTINUE TO BE YOUR FATHER AS HE HAS BEEN FOR ALL YOUR LIFE.
