Lessons From Fathers in the Bible

Text: Ephesians 6:1-3 – On this Father’s Day, Pastor Russ walks through a number of the accounts of fathers in the Old Testament that we can learn from. There are no perfect fathers in these accounts – just ordinary, sinful people who made mistakes, even in their parenting. The life of these fathers reminds us of how dependent we are on God to help us raise and nurture our children. But, fathers have to also be obedient to what God’s word teaches about parenting –  we need to be engaged in the lives of our children and model a life of godliness.
