- Reflect on the charge to the fathers to bring up their children "in the discipline and instruction of the Lord." What are the relational requirements for this to happen, and how are we doing in this regard?
As for how I’m doing in these areas, there is always a need for a lot of improvement. For my connection with God, it is something I am frequently fighting on a daily basis. Adjusting to being a father , being entrusted with more ministry responsibilities, learning to love and raise up people with a different set of needs than what I am otherwise unfamiliar with – it is easy to be more caught up in the tasks I have to do rather than the greater spiritual need to connect with God.
