He, as the head of our family and Patriarch, has to bear all the weight of leading our family in truth and knowledge. It is an incredible burden to take all of that on… especially when you think about the impact you as a father will have on these children as they grow up and have children, and then carry on what you taught them to their children and so on.
All the weight of teaching our kids the proper biblical life model, even though I assist with that, too, is on him. In fact, most of what I teach them on my own, are things he’s told me he wants them to go over or learn about.
What a beautiful thing to reflect on though, and something our society so needs to hear at the moment. That it’s up to the fathers to teach their children morality.
Because they truly are the only ones who really can.
That’s the model.
