Devotional For June 16, 2024

The Lord is like a father to his children, tender and compassionate to those who fear him.
‭‭Psalms‬ ‭103‬:‭13‬

Fathers hold a position in which they are to be providers and protectors. But just as important they hold the position as a teacher. Fathers teach us important life lessons. Consider some of the qualities that make a godly father’s role remarkable.

First, a godly father is to show love and compassion. He is caring and considerate to the needs of his children.

Second, a godly father listens and understands. A compassionate father doesn’t just hear but he understands the needs of his children. He understands their fears, joys, and concerns.

Third, a godly father gives godly guidance and wisdom. He helps their children be able to navigate life’s greatest challenges with faith and confidence.

God gives us the perfect example as being the good, good Father. His compassion never fails and His mercy never runs out. He guides us all the day long.

Whether you are a father or you have been impacted by a father, you know the importance of the position. Thank God we have fathers who desire to pour their wisdom and discipline into the lives of others. Honor and appreciate your father today. 


Lord, thank You for giving me a father who demonstrates Your great love and compassion. Help me to give godly wisdom and discipline to the people You have put in my life. Let Your word penetrate my heart and mind. In Jesus’ name, amen
