  • Men: lead and sacrifice with love
    • With understanding and honor
      • I Peter 3:7 – God holds wives in high regard. See Matthew 27:9; Genesis 1:27; 2:22; Malachi 2:14-16.  If husbands do not properly treat their wives with understanding and honor, it hinders their relationship with God.
    • A father must lead his children.
      • Ephesians 6:4; Hebrews 12:4-11 – Children should be disciplined with their best interests in mind.
      • Job 1:5
      • Sadly, 71% of all high school dropouts, 85% of all youth in prison, and 90% of all homeless and runaway children come from fatherless homes. (Daly)
      • Fathers must be careful not to provoke or exasperate their children. Ephesians 6:4; Colossians 3:21
