A God-fearing Father

It’s Matt’s first official Father’s Day and while I know my husband well enough not to feel the need to give him gifts or make a big fuss (He said today that Father’s Day isn’t about fathers…it’s about selling cards!) there are a few things I think he should know. So I’m going to make him a special list. Lists are some of his favorite things in the world. I take for granted what an amazing man I’m married to…what an incredible Christian father Laura has been blessed with. By God’s grace alone, Mathew is exactly the type of God-fearing father I always wanted for my husband. Thank you, Lord, for the gift of such a good man.

A God-fearing Father   
                                                                            
Diligent: 2 Timothy 3:14-16 But as for you, continue in what you have learned and have become convinced of…and how from infancy you have known the Holy Scriptures which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus.

Peaceful: Colossians 3:15 Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful.

Humble: Ephesians 4:2 Be humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love.   

Forgiving: Colossians 3:13 Bear with each other and forgive one another…forgive as the Lord forgave.

Patient: Romans 12:12 Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.

Honorable: Romans 12:10 Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves.

Loving: 1 John 4:19 We love because He first loved us. 

Faithful: Revelation 2:10 Be faithful, even to the point of death, and I will give you the crown of life.

I have to share this video I dug up from when Laura was just two months old! He was a natural with her from the beginning!
