Deuteronomy 31:14-32:14; Hosea 1:1-11; Luke 17:1-19

Fathers, provoke not your children to anger, lest they be discouraged. Colossians 3:21

A father and son were walking along the beach. The boy was lagging behind and suddenly gave a happy shout of satisfaction, “Look Daddy, I’m walking in your footsteps!”. Your child may not inherit your talents or gifts, but they will absorb your values. How important then fathers, to be a godly example for the little boy or girl who is watching you! Abraham gave both moral and spiritual leadership and didn’t leave it to the church or the educational system. Build your children up in the ways of the Lord. —Jim Comte

Father, there’s a call for you: watch your step;
Little eyes see all you do: watch your step.
Little feet go Daddy’s way, follow you from day to day;
Lead, O lead them not astray; watch your step. —Author Unknown
