July 22: Being a Father

Scripture Lesson: 1 Thessalonians 2:11-12

On this date in 1966, the Mets’ left fielder was congratulated on being a new dad when the Dodger Stadium scoreboard relayed the message: “Congratulations Ron Swoboda. Your new son is being born tomorrow morning.” Cecilia Swoboda gave birth to Chipper, the couples’ first child, at 1:05 a.m. Eastern Standard Time. So, while Swoboda was playing at 10:05 p.m. on the West Coast, it was already early morning of the next day on the East Coast, where his son was being born.

In his first letter to the church in Thessalonica, Paul said he was treating them just as a father treats his children. Paul encouraged, comforted, and urged them to live lives worthy of God who calls us to heaven. All of his actions toward the Thessalonians came from his love for them. One of the greatest gifts a man can be given is to be a father. With that great blessing comes a great responsibility to not only love his children like God loves us, but also to live a Christ-like example of encouraging, comforting, and urging his children to live lives worthy of God.

  1. If you are a father today, have you lived up to what a Godly father should do? Why or why not?

  2. If you are a son or daughter, have you followed your father’s direction and received his love? Why or why not?

  3. Why is it important to love our children like our Heavenly Father loves us and for us as children to love our fathers like God loves us?

Loving your children means wanting the very best for them. That is how our Heavenly Father loves each of us!

I've been browsing online more than three hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like
yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. Personally,
if all web owners and bloggers made good content as you did,
the net will be much more useful than ever before.
