A Father's Long Shadow #3 of 4

October 14, 2010
It is a jungle out there, and it is getting worse. Between the wasteland of TV and decaying morality, our kids are in more danger than ever. Ancient fortresses had walls, gates, and guards. It is high time for dads to put on some armor and start protecting their kids against those who’d like nothing more than to corrupt them for life. Fathers: are you ready for a real challenge?

There is one nut that is very tough to crack: the sullen attitude of a rebellious child. It is dad who is the key to cracking it. Much of the anguish in today’s families can be traced to fractured relationships between fathers and their children. Today we learn a few ways to open those clenched fists and hearts, and restore both dialogue and love where once it was missing.

There is one man whose imprint on our lives can never be erased. Even from the grave we feel the impact of our fathers. We all know that fathers are normally the family breadwinners. But in the Bible, fathers are also responsible for the spiritual well-being of their wives and children. Today we will explore the power of a dad’s example for good or ill.

In the media, Super-Mom is usually a mother run ragged dragging her kids to activities seven days a week. But the real “super-mom” is a woman who draws strength from the Lord, and lives a life of faithfulness to her calling as a wife and mother. This kind of woman was exemplified in the book of Proverbs. If we had more like her, our families would be in much better shape.

Go to a supermarket and check out the magazine counter. There you will see the qualities the world thinks makes the perfect woman. They have perfect hair, perfect complexions, and probably, several imperfect husbands in a row. Well, let’s forget the fashion magazines and focus on the Bible’s “perfect woman” chapter. Here we will see what really matters when God evaluates each woman and mother.

While our culture urges women to break through the glass ceiling, only women can bear children, and thus preserve our future. That’s why motherhood is so key to a nation’s survival. The Bible exalts the place of mothers, and gives women principles by which they can fulfill their deepest longings. Today we look at motherhood as a vital component of rebuilding fractured families.

Despite counseling services, divorce marks the end of half of American marriages, leaving incalculable damage. When the family unit breaks down, culture itself breaks down. Single-parent homes face enormous obstacles. But there is a resource that can prevent marriages from shattering, and it comes to us from the finished work of Christ.

Adam and Eve had it made back in the Garden of Eden. But they tossed paradise aside when they disobeyed God. Many marriages begin happily, but quickly descend into conflict as husband and wife display the latent rebellion that has marked every human since Adam and Eve. Today we will look at how we can apply God’s solution to man’s deepest problem, and heal broken relationships.

Endangered species: some activists get very concerned about the fate of the snail darter or perhaps the spotted owl. But the real endangered species is the family. Fractured, broken, stressed, dysfunctional, all these words describe a crisis in the most basic unit of society. If the church does not act to save the family, who will?

It is one thing to have strong faith in God when the sun is shining and all is well with the world. It is quite another when storms come. Storms teach lessons that calm seas can never teach. A boat of prisoners was sailing to Rome when their vessel sank in gale force winds. Were it not for the courage of Paul, a fellow prisoner, all would have been lost. Today we look at the last chapter in an amazing story of faith.

Landlubbers will never know the terror that being caught in a storm at sea can create. The deep is about to become your grave. Paul was on a ship taking him to Rome. Being sure he would get there, he had no fear that he would die prematurely. His courage saved the crew and fellow prisoners, and once again the power of the gospel was evident.
