I don’t know how to be a good father.
Is there a way?
Have you wondered about this too?
What, really, should we do?
Can it be done, today!
I feel inadequate to the task,
I don’t know what to do.
I watch my child sleep,
See the rise and fall of his chest, and
Yet I don’t yet have a clue.
I love my child because
God gave him to me.
A gift, a person to show the way
but how can I when I don’t know it?
The only thing that I know
for sure is that Jesus is the way.
I follow Him and I’ve shown my child
The One Who can affect His life the most.
It is the only real knowledge that I can give
that matters. The knowledge from his studies
won’t matter, the games which he plays
won’t matter, his friends won’t matter.
My life doesn’t matter unless
I can make sure that at least he
knows the Truth and has given his
heart to Jesus.
I pray that He lives in
my son’s heart. I can’t discern
his heart, but God can.
God knows whether my child belongs
to Him. I pray that I have done
at least enough to see that
him grow into Life
