Matthew 7:9-11 “Which of you, if your son asks for bread, will give him a stone? 10 Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a snake? 11 If you, then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him!

a great father will try to emulate THE GREATEST FATHER of all ABBA FATHER

ONE: a great father ...understands that children humbly depends on him for their needs be it

Spiritually Physically Financially Mentally

CHECK THIS OUT :

Proverbs 15:20 A wise son maketh a glad father: but a foolish man despiseth his mother.

you know whats interesting ? concerning Proverbs 15:20 ( hilarious ....... i came to the forum for a WHOLE other issue :lol: )

i asked the question why the passage did NOT instead say........... A PROUD father ?????

I sensed a prompt from THE HOLY SPIRIT convey that ...

if it declared a PROUD father it would give the idea that this father would have been the source of his sons wisdom

however .............

We have our OWN will ...the son still has to choose its his OWN will

the son has to choose the roads he wants to take in his life soooo thus a Wise Son MAKES A GLAD FATHER

its so funny...upon reading the title ... that i chose to come a runnin

i MET .....my father lying in a coffin he didnt raise me per my mothers choice

she never even told him she was pregnant ...............!
Now why dost thou cry out aloud? is there no king in thee? micah 4:9
