Why Fatherhood Matters

Proverbs 3:1-12
Our world is wracked by the absence of fathers in the home. Countless children are growing up with no father to guide, instruct, and love them. A secondary result of this is that many in our world have concluded that fatherhood doesn’t matter after all. Scripture is counter-cultural in its view of fathers. Not only does God tell us that fathers matter; he requires that they be intentional. If the next generation is to “set their hope in God,” fathers must accept their call to “teach their children.”
