A Father’s Role – Happy Blessed Father’s Day 2013

Our Wiki Answers Encyclopedic Moment  🙂

  • A male (♂) organism is the physiological sex which produces sperm. Each spermatozoon can fuse with a larger female gamete, or ovum, in the process of fertilization. A male cannot reproduce sexually without access to at least one ovum from a female.
  • A boy is a young male human, usually child or adolescent. When he becomes an adult he’s described as a man.
  • A man is an adult human male; the gender role to which men in most human cultures are expected to conform. ( pardonnez-moi!  I’d like to add a comment…. It is also a stage of the male role given by God)
  • A father (or dad) is a male parent or Individual progenitor of human offspring.  Fathers determine the gender of their child through a sperm cell which either contains an X chromosome (female), or Y chromosome (male) (note- a blessed position received from God)

More of Wiki Answers: Traditionally, fathers act in a protective, supportive and responsible way towards their children. Involved fathers offer developmentally specific provisions to their sons and daughters throughout the life cycle and are impacted themselves by doing so. Active father figures may play a role in reducing behavior and psychological problems in young men and women. The father figure does not always have to be a child’s biological father and some children will have a biological father as well as a step- or nurturing father. 

Now that our encyclopedic moment is out of the way, let us reflect on Our Heavenly Father in prayer.

Our Father, which art in heaven,
Hallowed be thy Name.
Thy Kingdom come.
Thy will be done in earth,
As it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
As we forgive them that trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation,
But deliver us from evil.
For Thine is The Kingdom, The Power, and the Glory, For Ever and Ever. Amen.

My Thoughts …….Here we go!  🙂  😛

Because of God’s will, a human father has the power to provide a child’s daily bread, forgive a child’s trespasses, teach and show a child how to forgive, and guide them away from evil so that the child may avoid temptations.  Father’s remind yourselves of the power given to you over your child’s earthly life. Use God as your fatherly example.  Be a loving, supportive, protective, responsible, and correcting father. Be an obedient man of God. It is God’s will.  You will feel and see your blessings flow by passing the God-given and guided task on to your son(s). Son(s) who will one day possibly become a father. You are the one that holds the main key to putting procreation in place. For those wonderful, “Individual progenitor’s” i.e. FATHERS, who are doing your part per God’s will and instructions………..

Happy Father’s Day 2 U!

Ephesians 6: 4 – And you, fathers, do not provoke your children to wrath, but bring them up in the training and admonition of the Lord.

2 Timothy 3:16-17 -All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.

Challenge– For the men that are just out there making babies and taking no part in their child’s life, please mark a spot in your mind and on your heart the meaning of the word PROVISION to stay in line with the will of God. If you feel yourself falling out of line, grab a dictionary and remind yourself of its meaning and pray for the Lord’s guidance. 

PROVISION- (N) – (a) the act or process of providing; (b) the fact or state of being prepared beforehand; (c) a measure taken beforehand to deal with a need or contingency : preparation.

Being a FATHER is a prestigious position to have in a child’s life.  

As my papaw used to tell the young men in church acting up boy you better straighten up and fly right, earn your wings, and own your flight.” If you find yourself unprepared for fatherhood, take a lesson from Onan, the son of Judah, spill your seed on the ground to avoid having to provide for an offspring. You can read the story in Genesis 38:1-10. If you have a living child or children, there is absolutely NO REASON, NO EXCUSE, whatsoever for you to avoid, nor lack in your fatherly duties.

If you are not going to spill your seed on the ground, in the trash, or wherever and impregnate a female.…The way I see it, the Lord gives you nine months to prepare for your gift He is giving you, unless it is a preemie.  Even then, you have months to prepare. You are to take care of ALL things the Lord gives you.  So……………

(((((Get Your Act Together)))))

In memory of my one and only father figure, my Papaw, Professor J.T. Banks, of whom I miss dearly every day. This is him at the age of 84. He used to brag about having all of his “real teeth” at that age.  Boy was he blessed, and look at that smile. I’ve also included a pic of him and grandma in their younger days. They were such a beautiful loving and caring couple. I was thinking, God puts at least one person in your life, that will forever be your guiding force, even if that person has died. Thank you Lord, for my Papaw, being that one person.

  1. Very well done. I appreciate you taking the Wiki answers definition farther and explaining the BIblical teachings on fatherhood. It is much needed in today’s time. Over the yers I have seen many families either destroyed or excelling in God’s service based on the spirituality of the father.

    Lord bless you. Great post.

    • Thank you for such a sweet comment. I think that is where I inherited my mouthpiece. 🙂 Yes, a precious soul indeed. He was hands-on man. He was surrounded by 7 granddaughters, 3 grandsons came later on. A man who had patience and helped in raising his granddaughters had to be rich in many blessings.
