In this episode:
This week we are focusing on fatherhood.
In this Spiritual Kick Off we unpack great insight that Paul gave Timothy regarding our own actions. Godly men remember their kids are always watching and how critical it is to set the example for them to follow. The bottom line is this guys – if you don’t teach your kids the world will. Fight for your family and show them the strong leader are. You have the Lion Within and we pray this is a good shot of encouragement to get your week going!
He must manage his own family well and see that his children obey him, and he must do so in a manner worthy of full respect. Click To Tweet1 Timothy 3:4
Now the verse of the week, first Timothy 300. He must be one who manages his own household. Well, keeping his children under control with all dignity. Now, some of you guys, when you hear it and be like, oh my Lord, I’m just trying to make it through the day. And I get it. I am too some days. Okay. So this is, uh, this is a verse of encouragement.
Okay. Now let’s break this down a little bit. So he must be one who manages his own household. Well, keeping his children under control with all these. Well, let’s think about obedience. Okay. Now, when Paul wrote this back, that back, Timothy, you know, the household meant different things, right? I mean, and you really could think about the household the way that Paul’s talking about right here.
Think about it as people who live, live within your house, you know, cause sometimes the family structure has changed a lot. We have all sorts of different people. If sometimes they’re in the house, maybe it’s parents, um, grandparents, things like. So if they’re in your house, that is who we need to manage.
Well, okay. Because it says he must manage his own household. Well, right now, so we talk about keeping our children under control with all dignity. What are we talking about there that under control, think about obedience, not rebellious, respectful, courteous, and exhibiting the fruit of this. That’s really big.
Okay. Now the fruit of spirit will go to that. Love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness. And self-control. Those are nice. They’re not fluid spirit. So when you think about your kids and what you’re trying to instill in them, what we’re after that is it. We want them to exhibit that fruit.
So when Paul was talking about. Keep your children under control with all dignity, be really thinking about how can I help my kids grow in their walk and show the fruit. Now, one of the greatest ways you can do that as, as, as a, as a lion, leading the Cubs at the good fruit yourself, right? Because the person who can make the biggest impact on their kids is.
There’s no one else. It’s not a school. It’s not a church. It’s not anything out like that. It’s you? You’re responsible, man. And that’s a big responsibility. I get it. Hailey. You said you signed up for it. You got them. You need to take care of. Okay. So remember those kids are always watching and you need to be the one who says that example.
So I think Paul gives us some really good advice there firsthand with the three. And I want you to just let that simmer and kind of just soaking your heart this week must manage your household. Well, keep those children honors control with all dignity. Okay. So in think about it. We want our kids to be kids that people want to be around.
So yeah, I think that’s something that, that if you keep that in mind, during my kids, someone that, that you think others enjoy being around and do you know that. You know what, that, that’s something that can really help you as you evaluate this. So for this week, which you can expect on Wednesday, we’ll break down.
Some areas that I recognize is I try to leave my little Cubs and you know what? Haven’t got it all figured out, but I got some areas that I really wanted to point out that I think will help us as we grow our families. As we lead our families, as our kids grow that we want to keep in mind, we need to consider.
So the question of the week, something I don’t want you to think. Are you leading your children or is the world because if the world is leading your kids, it’s not a good situation. You need to be the one, you have to be setting the example. You have to be the one stepping up, stepping in, leaning in, showing them, you know, with actions, not just words, but with actual actions of what, what you expect, how you want to live your life, they will get more from it.
