Sharing 25 things fathers should consider in building a
better person within themselves.

  1. Fathers, should go to Jesus in prayer and pray with their children and families. Leading prayer as the leader of the

    household to establish a consistent fellowship.

  2. Fathers, make mistakes, but own up to them and correct the mistakes they have made. Fathers should not blame anyone else for their mistakes. Working not to repeat them and modeling

    responsibility to they set a good example for their children.

  3. Fathers, discipline their children with love, not with physical
    violence, verbal degradation or emotional manipulation.
  4. Fathers, take their children/families to church and bible study to receive the Word of God and meditate on these words

    to empower, inspire and strengthen the family unit.

  5. Fathers, are not perfect and should not try to be perfect,
    always ask God for wisdom, direction and discernment.

  6. Fathers, don’t blame others for their weakness, but work to strengthen themselves in the Word of God through prayer and

    reading and interpretation of scripture.

  7. Fathers, will not “follow the guys” when they are disrespecting women, this sets an inappropriate and dangerous model for

    their sons to follow.

  8. Fathers, don’t block their children’s anointing with ungodly actions and modeling that maybe repeated by their children as

    they mature into adults.

  9. Fathers, ask for discernment to recognize the signs of trouble,
    chaos and confusion before they happen.
  10. Fathers, model respect for the spirit of the church,
    church representation and the Holy Spirit.

  11. Fathers, lead grace/prayer at meal time and anoint their
    children with oil in good and challenging times.

  12. Fathers, should be able to purchase their daughters personal items and be proud in doing so. Setting a standard of respect, pride and responsibility for the young lady he

    protects and loves.

  13. Fathers, promote education in the household.
    Reading should come before video games, television or play time.
  14. Fathers, talk to their children about drugs and sex before
    the street or television does.
  15. Fathers, do not whine about what “HIS” daddy did not do for him, but follow a model indicative of Godly men and


  16. Fathers, do not blame where he came from for his short-comings.
    He focuses on where he is going in a positive direction.

  17. Fathers, takes time to visit their children’s school and talk to teachers about their children’s progress, strengths,

    and challenges.

  18. Fathers, will happily sacrifice for their family, showing how
    God’s love sacrificed for all of us.
  19. Fathers, accept responsibility for their children’s actions. Remembering that “the apple does not fall far from the tree.” Fathers recognize and work to stop generational curses so a

    new and positive direction is made for his children.

  20. Fathers, will visit their children and spend time with them even though he may not be present in the home. A true father takes responsibility for a life that they helped create and a true mother/woman allows the father to do this and puts her

    feelings aside to allow a father to be a father.

  21. Fathers, aren’t afraid to show love to their children, children still need reinforcement that they are loved and respected by their father. Love cannot be bought, bartered, compromised, sold, exchanged. Love is a action word and

    actions speak louder than words.

  22. Fathers, spend time just being together with their children
    and doing things their children like and will remember doing.
  23. Fathers, teach their child to be responsible and accountable for their actions. Not to blame others for their actions or think

    they are owed anything. Respect is always earned.

  24. Fathers must teach and model respect to women for their sons and respect to men by their daughters. Sex must be taken seriously not as a game, violence is not acceptable by men or women.

    Fathers must lead in the understanding of this.

  25. Fathers must teach humility, respect, honor, and fear of the Lord.
