A Word to Dads

Here are a couple of articles from author and speaker Tedd Tripp.  He uses Genesis 18:19 to highlight some key principles, as a reminder that "raising children to serve God doesn't happen by itself."
  1. Engaging Our Children.  We must be specific and intentional as we give direction to our children. "A defensive coordinator does not get a team ready to make the big plays by lecturing. . . . He employs a clear, defined, intentional process of training."
  2. Protective Authority.  "You must be winsome and gracious as you help your child learn to see that authority is something God brings into his life for a blessing."
