Courageous Fatherhood


Nowadays it takes courage to be a father. Fatherhood, manhood in general is something that is under attack in our society. And why is it under attack? Because it was God’s design. Did you ever notice that Satan always attacks the pillars of God’s design? The things that are sacred are under attack, and fatherhood is a sacred institution created by God Himself. We’re in a day where we hear a lot of things about toxic masculinity or patriarchy, and we’re seeing the worst of manhood being revealed all the way around us. In our identity politic age, it tends to sort of be guilt by association. But in an age where men are behaving so badly, we are in an age when we can shine like a light like never before. We can be a contrast to what the world has created out of manhood and out of fatherhood. We can show the world what it means to be a godly father.

What would you do if you’d lost everything? And you’re there, disgraced, and shamed, and you’ve lost all of the benefits that you’ve worked for all of your life? What would you cry out for? What would you be asking for? Even though David had once had everything, and he’s now lost everything, David cries out, not God give me back all of these creature comforts that I’ve amassed to myself, and all of the dignity and pomp and splendor of being king, but God, give me more of you. In your trial, in your difficulty, in your desert space, is that what you cry?
