Re: Fathers

One father is more than a hundred Schoolmasters. --George Herbert

By the time a man realizes that maybe his father was right, he usually has a son who thinks he's wrong. --Charles Wadsworth

When I was a boy of fourteen, my father was so ignorant I could hardly stand to have the old man around. But when I got to be twenty-one, I was astonished at how much he had learned in seven years. --Mark Twain

Our culture needs to replace the idea of the superfluous father with a more compelling understanding of the critical role fathers play in the lives of their children, not just as 'paychecks' but as disciplinarians, teachers and moral guides. And fathers must be physically present in the home. They can't simply show up on the weekends or for pre-arranged 'quality time' --Dr. Wade Horn, National Fatherhood Initiative

And you, fathers, do not provoke your children to wrath, but nurture them in the discipline and admonition of the Lord. (Eph6:4)

Furthermore, we have had human fathers who corrected us, and we paid them respect. Shall we not much more readily be in subjection to the Father of spirits and live? (Heb12:9)

As a father has compassion on his children, so Jehovah has compassion on those who fear Him. (Ps103:13)

My son, hear the instruction of your father... (Pr1:8a)
