  Study Tools

THE SECOND MOST BEAUTIFUL WORD IN OUR LANGUAGE IS M-O-T-H-E-R. MOTHER. ON TOMORROW, ALL ACROSS THIS LAND WE’LL BE JOINING IN TO HELP HER CELEBRATE HER DAY. AND SO, OUR PROGRAM TODAY IS DEDICATED TO ALL THE MOTHERS IN OUR AUDIENCE BUT IT’S "FOR" ALL THE FATHERS OUT THERE. SOME PORTIONS MAY NOT BE APPROPRIATE FOR LITTLE EARS SO YOU MAY WANT TO DISMISS ANY CHILDREN FROM THE ROOM UNTIL WE’VE FINISHED. OUR TOPIC FOR TODAY IS "HOW TO MAKE YOUR BABY’S MOTHER HAPPY EVERYDAY".

MOST OF US, WHEN WE HEAR MOTHER’S DAY MESSAGES , TRADITIONALLY HEAR ABOUT HOW MOTHERS HAVE SUFFERED AND SACRIFICED AND ENDURED HARD TIMES AND, WE SET ASIDE THIS ONE DAY TO RECOGNIZE HER FOR HER UNSELFISHNESS. BUT THAT WAS THEN AND THIS IS NOW... 2003.. AND ALTHOUGH SOME MOTHERS STILL SUFFER, IT’S NOT NECESSARILY BECAUSE THEY HAVE TO. TODAY I WANT TO FOCUS ON TWO AREAS OR SETS OF THINGS THAT BROTHERS (MEN / FATHERS) CAN DO TO HELP THEIR BABY’S MOTHERS’ LIFE BE HAAPPY EVERYDAY.

THE TWO AREAS ARE...

1. LET YOUR BABY’S MOTHER SEE YOU BEING A STRONG GODLY FATHER EVERY DAY.

2. LET YOUR BABY’S MOTHER KNOW HOW IMPORTANT THAT SHE IS TO YOU EVERY DAY... TREAT HER RIGHT

ON BEING A STRONG GODLY FATHER. FIRST OF ALL LET’S ACKNOWLEDGE THAT MOST MALES INHERIT THE ABILITY TO IMPREGNATE OR PRODUCE CHILDREN. NO BROTHER HOWEVER; INHERITS THE KNOWLEDGE OF HOW TO BE A GOOD & GODLY FATHER. SO IF HE DOESN’T AUTOMATICALLY KNOW, THEN IT’S LOGICAL THAT HE SEEK SOME HELP IN THIS AREA. MANY BROTHERS ARE BLESSED TO HAVE STRONG TEACHERS IN THEIR OWN FATHERS. JUST AS MANY OR MORE HOWEVER; DON’T. SO THEY NEED TO FIND A GODLY MENTOR TO HELP THEM LEARN HOW TO BE STRONG GODLY FATHERS. ALONG WITH THE MENTOR, THEY NEED STRONG SUPPLEMENTAL MATERIAL TO STUDY.

"THE WORD" PROVIDES EXPECTATIONS FOR GODLY PARENTS (FATHERS) AND THIS IS AN EXCELLENT RESOURCE AND PLACE TO START. FOLLOWING ARE SOME FOUNDATIONAL PRINCIPALS AND INSTRUCTIONS THAT ARE FOUND IN THE WORD TO HELP MEN BE GOOD GODLY FATHERS.

1. STRONG GODLY FATHERS SHOULD COMMAND OR INSIST THAT THEIR HOUSEHOLDS FOLLOW THEM (THEIR EXAMPLE) AS THEY FOLLOW CHRIST AND LIVE , IN FRONT OF THEIR FAMILIES A GODLY LIFE STYLE. (GEN 18:19)

2. STRONG GODLY FATHERS SHOULD TEACH THEIR CHILDREN ABOUT GOD IN SUCH A WAY THAT THEIR GRANDCHILDREN AND GREAT GRANDCHILDREN AND GENERATIONS TO COME WILL KNOW GOD IN AN UP CLOSE AND PERSONAL WAY AND BE ANXIOUS TO BE OBEDIENT TO HIM. (PSALMS 78:4-7)

3. STRONG GODLY FATHERS WILL REHEARSE (OR CONSTANTLY REMIND) THEIR CHILDREN OF THE VICTORIES IN GOD THAT THEY’VE EXPERIENCED. DEUT: 4: 9,10)THIS ALLOWS THE CHILDREN TO EXPERIENCE AND UNDERSTAND (AMONG OTHER THINGS) THE REWARDS OF BEING OBEDIENT TO GOD.

4.STRONG GODLY FATHERS WILL TEACH THEIR CHILDREN HOW TO SUCESSFULLY LIVE IN THE WORLD AND DEAL WITH WORLDLY THINGS. (ENTIRE BOOK OF PROVERBS) IS DEVOTED TO THIS

6.STRONG GODLY FATHERS WILL CORRECT THEIR CHILDREN WHEN NECESSARY. (PROV 29:17) THIS SAVES HIS BABY’S MOTHER FROM BEING BROUGHT TO TEARS AND SHAME AS THE CHILD GROWS OLDER AND BECOMES INVOLVED IN THINGS THAT HE OR SHE SHOULDN‘T PROV 29:15)
