When we are not affirmed by a Godly ‘father figure’, life can be an up-hill struggle.
God the Father ordained that man should not be alone, but be placed in families where mutual trust and encouragement would be the norm. Our value and worth is related to what we do and how we are nurtured within the context of ‘Family’.
And yet as the very fabric of ‘families in society’ wears so thin, even fathers are now relinquishing their traditional and God made roles of authority and affirmation.
Increasingly marriages are breaking down and children and young adults are growing up without a strong concept of ‘fathering’. It is truly amazing what people can do when they know the strength of a father figure rooting for them.
So, my call is “Arise, ‘father figures’ in the church and let us make a positive move to re-dress the balance.”
