"See how very much our Father loves us, for he calls us his children, and that is what we are! But the people who belong to this world don't recognize that we are God's children because they don't know him." I John 1:3
As you prepare to honor your father today, I want you to remember how powerful the love of a father can be. I want you to be reminded howmuch your Heavenly Father loves you. And I want to challenge fathers to love more like this - more like God.
This morning I will be sharing some ideas to help our dads love better.

But for now, who do you need to love better?

How do you need to love better?

Is something keeping you from receiving the love of your Heavenly Father?

Will you receive the love of the Father?

“To deliver you from the immoral woman, from the seductress who flatters with her words, who forsakes the companion of her youth, and forgets the covenant of her God. For her house leads down to death, and her paths to the dead; none who go to her return, nor do they regain the paths of life— so you may walk in the way of goodness, and keep to the paths of righteousness. For the upright will dwell in the land, and the blameless will remain in it; but the wicked will be cut off from the earth, and the unfaithful will be uprooted from it.”  Proverbs 2:16-22
I find it quite revealing that when dealing with living wisely, Solomon zeroes in the issue of sexual morality. Rightly so, isn’t that where men most often get stuck on stupid?
1)  Do you love your wife? 

Are you fantasizing with pornographic magazines or websites? That's stupid!

Are you flirting at work or over social media? That's stupid!

Give your wife your best, mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually. Live in godly wisdom!
2)  Do you love your kids?
Are you giving your best or leftover time and energy.
I heard a heart-breaking fact this morning – the 10th most wanted Christmas gift on kid’s Christmas List – A DAD! Are you giving your kids the dad they desire and deserve?
Until your faith actually is lived out in your daily life, you really don't have a faith. Wisdom isn't a concept or a theory it is godly truth and knowledge applied to your daily living.
