What comes to your mind when thinking of characteristics of a godly father?
Blessed with a godly Father
Face to face—to see and know;
Face to face with my Redeemer,
Jesus Christ who loves me so.
Godly Father Acrostic
F – My dad was my friend
A – My dad was an author of my life
T-My dad was truthful
I never had reason to doubt his world. I asked him for advice and I knew he would always tell me the truth.
But there is one who is the absolute Truth and that one is Jesus – He is the way, the truth, and the life (John 14:6), His Word is truth; it can be trusted and we need never doubt what He tells us. Psalms 33:4 For the word of the LORD is right; and all his works are done in truth.
H – My dad was my hero
He could do no wrong. I could run to my dad and let him hide me from it all. He protected me and surrounded me with his love giving me strength to go on. He always encouraged me to do right and follow the Lord. He was there for me whenever I needed him.
Jesus too is my hero, my protector, my strength, my hiding place . He never leaves me nor forsakes me. Psalms 32:7 Thou art my hiding place; thou shalt preserve me from trouble; thou shalt compass me about with songs of deliverance. Selah. Hebrews 13:5 . . . for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.
Jesus, Rock of Ages, strong and true;
In a weary land I in His shadow rest,
He is my strength in all that I do.
E – My dad was my encourager
R – My dad was a rock for me
