Article: Four Questions Every Father Should Answer

With tomorrow being Father's Day, I believe that it is important for each father to read these thoughts. It goes without saying that there probably will be no other man more important in your child's life than their father. Every child wants to know the answer to these questions from their father.

It does not take a rocket scientist to look across our landscape and see many emotionally unhealthy people today. Whether it is the endless parade of angry, bitter people highlighted on the latest afternoon talk show, the increasing rate of aberrant sexual behavior, or the systematic disintegration of the family, it is obvious that we are a nation with many unhealthy, insecure people. Can this be changed? Absolutely. However, it will not be through government programs, through scholastic education, or even economic revitalization. It will come one individual at a time. Each person must discover the answer to these four questions. These are simple questions, but will influence every relationship a person has.

Four Questions Every Person On Earth Wants Answered

  • DO I MATTER? - Derivatives of this question are asked cosmically with questions like, “Am I an accident?” “Was I Created?” What does the World have to say about the origin of man? That we came from a pool of cosmic sludge, that we jumped out, jumped back in, jumped back out, grew legs, became a monkey and that we were on our way to becoming a man. We have been told we were some cosmic accident. There is no design or purpose for us here. What does God's Word Say? That man is an intentional creation of God.I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. Psalm 139:14
  • AM I LOVED? - One of the greatest desire mankind want to know is a simple question of, “Am I loved?” This question can be asked in ways such as, “Am I of Value?” or “Am I Appreciated?” The Bible tells us that God loves and values each of us. But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:8
  • WHY AM I HERE?- “What is my Purpose in Life?” “Can I Make A Difference?” Have you discover why God made you the way He did? He designed you with a specific purpose in mind. Have you determined God’s Purpose for your life? "For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11
  • IS THERE HOPE FOR ME? - Once a person has determined that they matter to their Creator, that they are loved by that Creator, and that their Creator has a wonderful plan for their life, they want to know if they can change to fit that Plan. What was cannot be changed . . . What will be is determined by the choices we make today. There is hope! Never forget that there is hope! Therefore, if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. 2 Corinthians 5:17
Not only does every person want to know these things, but every child wants to know them from their parents.

Men
, do your children know that they matter, are loved, and have purpose?
When your children cannot answer these questions . . . it will be far far more difficult for your child to maintain a balanced, healthy life.

From a Dad of 2 boys (8-11) who struggles too. (That's my boys below)
