Fathers come in all shapes, sizes, personalities, and backgrounds. But one thing is true of all fathers, and that is they have the potential to have the greatest influence on a child's life over anyone else.

Before a Daddy/Daughter Date
Proverbs 23:22 Listen to your father, who gave you life,
and do not despise your mother when she is old.

The Bible encourages children to listen to their fathers but also encourages fathers to train their children and to treat them with respect and love.

Ephesians 6:4 Fathers, do not exasperate your children; instead, bring them up in the training and instruction of the Lord.

No one is perfect. Even if your husband doesn't take your son camping or if he chooses to play video games instead of going to the park with your daughter, he is still the daddy that God gave to your children. Whether he lives with you or only sees them on the weekend, we as mothers should do everything in our power to make our children believe that their daddy is bigger than life. They should look to him for security and protection and for love. We can build him up to our children and help them truly believe that their daddy "can do anything" or we can tear him down and mumble about each and every missed opportunity and make our children feel that they are missing something.

As Father's Day appraoches and all through out the year I want to encourage you to help your husband be the best father he can be by supporting him, encouraging him, and loving him when he fails. Help your children to love their father, no matter what kind of daddy he is, by speaking with respect and love and admiration of him. Then watch how your household blossoms with love and respect as a result!!
