Dad – Here is a thought to chew on for a while.

You are in the best position to teach your children about God.

Have you ever thought about that?

How important is it? Where can I learn to do that? What does that mean? You may have been a dad for many years and never thought about this before. Maybe you think about it a lot, and it makes you sweat.

Consider the words of J.W. Alexander in his book Thoughts on Family Worship, written in 1858.

“There is no memeber of a household whose individual piety is of such importance to all the rest, as the father…Where the head of a family is lukewarm…he will send a chill through the whole house; and if any happy exception occur, and one and another surpass him in faithfulness, it will be in spite of his…example.”

So, how well are you leading?

Do you have a friend who seems to be doing this well? Give him a call and mention this RiseUp.com. It will start a good conversation that will sharpen you both.
