BIBLICAL FATHERHOOD--THE GREAT NEED OF THE WORLD 7z-20) HE HAS A GENERATION MINDSET-- ROLE MODELING LOVE THAT "BELIEVES ALL THINGS" (1 Corinthians 13:7) continued.

Jesus said, "The Father loveth the Son, and hath given all things into his hand" (John 3:25 and 5:20). The reason for this is that God believed all things concerning His Son.

Men, our families desperately need fathers who will daily demonstrate the love that believes that in God all things are possible. To say that we love when we do not actively demonstrate we believe in the subject or object of our love is hypocritical. In a natural sense, there are those who love money and they demonstrate their belief in it by working hard to get it and get lots of it! The same applies to foods that we love. In eating them we demonstrate we believe in them to satisfy our appetite in some way.

In the same way, every wife needs a husband who not only says that he loves her but demonstrates his love by his faith in her. He trusts his home and family into her care. He should also be able to trust his check book into her care, as well as many other things (Proverbs 31:10-31).

The same principle of love applies also to his growing children. There will come times when his love for them will be demonstrated by his belief that they will drive the family car and look after it. He will trust his sons and daughters to look after the family home and lawns, etc. He will trust his tools, tractors, and many things into his sons hands because he believes in them. When they blow, or mess up his trust, he does not stop loving them, training them, and believing in them.

Be encouraged.
