10. My son, if sinners entice thee, consent thou
11. If they say, Come with us, let us
lay wait for blood, let us lurk privily for the innocent without cause:
living in a day and time where the lack of Father’s wisdom is evident; as one
watch the local News on television and see the amount of your men that are
being led to the criminal courts chained and shackled charged with various
offenses (mostly murder), the underlining question is this
“Where are the Fathers of these
young men ?”
the above passage of scripture (Prov.1:10 – 11) we see a facet of a Father’s
wisdom at work; taking into account what we’re experiencing today with our
young men, it’s fair to say this level of wisdom is greatly lacking.
me hasten to say that I’m not insinuating that there are no Fathers who don’t share
words of knowledge and wisdom with their sons and daughters; but, what I am saying
is that as a nation we’re reaping the world wind of the lack thereof.
we celebrate Father’s Day this week let’s take a closer look how we’re
functioning as fathers, not only in our homes but also in our communities. If a father’s guidance and wisdom is lacking
in the lives of our troubled young men and women, and they know that a good example
of a father and his wisdom is right down the street, 9/10 of the time they
would make some kind of effort to reach and make contact with that father.
godly father, a father of wisdom should have a great sphere of influence in his
community, just his presence or the fact that he resides in the community can
be liken to the presence of an armed, uniformed, NO NONSENSE, yet easy to
communicate with Police Officer stationed in a particular area.
presence of such Police Officer sends a clear message (especially) to those of
a criminal mind-set that
“Your activities will not be tolerated in
you imagine our communities with such Father figures residing on every street?
times in which we’re living in demands that Fathers make their present felt,
not just in their homes but also in their communities, on the jobs, in the
church and wherever our young men and women gathers. Taking nothing away from the celebration and
acknowledgement of Father’s Day, but gone are the days when we can put the spot
light on Fathers for one day; as everyday our young men are being murdered /
gunned down on our streets.
grave and the prison are consuming our young men, and it’s up to us (Fathers)
who are more experienced with life’s issues and challenges to deny ourselves
and make every effort to reach our young men.
frequently visiting our courts and seeing the record breaking number of young
men that’s being led to court chained and shackled charged with various counts
of murders and other serious offenses; sad to say that 95% of the court appearances
by these young men, no fathers are present; only mothers and other family
a nation, we can continue playing games; especially in our churches where religiously
and traditionally Father’s Day is acknowledged and celebrated; and in the
course of so doing honor / rewards are given to the DADDY that have the most children.
Despite the fact that these men may have been or still are Dead Beat Dads who
have absolutely no idea of how their children are surviving, they are still
honored and esteemed.
that there are Fathers who are making an indelible mark in the lives of their
children that can’t be erased; these fathers are not some much concerned with the
hype and fanfare that goes along with the celebration and acknowledgement of
Father’s Day, but rather they do their very best to raise their son in the fear
and admonish of the Lord.
11. My son, despise not the chastening of the
LORD; neither be weary of his correction:
12. For whom the LORD loveth he
correcteth; even as a father the son in whom he delighteth.
fathers, there’s no need for us to try and reinvent the wheel when it comes raising
our sons and daughters; the key is submitting to the leading of Holy Spirit, in
so doing we should seek to help other fathers who don’t have that relationship
with God (Father Yahweh) to develop such a relationship.
without having a genuine relationship with God, earthly fathers would not know
how to properly raise their sons and daughters.
murders and other serious crimes that are being committed on our streets / in
our communities are being carried out by our sons, brothers, nephews, cousins
and even some of our fathers. Therefore the answers / solutions to our problems
lies with us Fathers, we are the ones that have to step up to the plate and positively
reach our troubled males.
