Provide the Pattern - II
In many homes, dads are absent or not spiritually present for their children. Some are not equipping their sons and daughters with the Bible’s blueprint for life. On today’s edition of Family Talk, Pastor Brenen Beeler offers two critical pieces of advice. First, Psalm 27:10 says if your father has abandoned you, the Lord will take care of you. Second, spend time in the Bible daily to provide the pattern of living for your children. According to Pastor Brenen, “As long as you model your life after Jesus, you have the pattern of a father to follow.” Proverbs 22:6 says, “Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.”
