If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

II Chronicles 7:14
Dove of Hope
Eph 5:25 Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;
Eph 5:26 That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word,
Eph 5:27 That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.
Eph 5:28 So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself.
Eph 6:4 And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.
Col 3:19 Husbands, love your wives, and be not bitter against them.
Col 3:21 Fathers, provoke not your children to anger, lest they be discouraged.
Fathers as we see in the above scriptures are the head of the household the spiritual leaders and the reflection of our heavenly father.
We as fathers and husbands have the honor and responsibility to show an image of who our heavenly father is and how he relates to others.
The father is the foundation of the home and the mother the walls the keep us safe.
As men and fathers our responsibility is to Love our wives with the same self sacrificing love that Christ showed towards the church and to love our children and grandchildren as Christ loves us.
To often in today's society the father is an absent figure in the home, as men we have relegated ourselves to nothing more than seed donors creating children and leaving.
When we destroy the family the home we ultimately destroy the fabric of society and propriety, leaving nothing for our children to base their existence on. No example of how a man should be and creating a world of donors with no other ultimate purpose.
We have relegated the headship of the house to the wife to carry both loads as teacher and nurturer filling a role she was never intended to hold, all because we are either to lazy or to afraid to fulfill the role God intended us to fill.
It is time for us as Fathers and Grandfathers and men in general to stand up and fill those roles that God has given us to fill, to be the Men that God intended us to be, to love sacrificially to give fully and to be that example of our father that we were intended to be.
This month we celebrate Fathers day
