10 Scriptures On Fathers


  
1.   Wise children make their fathers happy. Only fools despise their mothers. (Proverbs 15:20 GNT)

2.   My children, listen when your father corrects you. Pay attention and learn good judgment, (Proverbs 4:1 NLT)

3.   Honor (esteem and value as precious) your father and your mother–this is the first commandment with a promise. (Ephesians 6:2 AMP)

4.   Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger by the way you treat them. Rather, bring them up with the discipline and instruction that comes from the Lord. (Ephesians 6:4 NLT)

5.   Don’t be harsh or impatient with an older man. Talk to him as you would your own father, and to the younger men as your brothers. Reverently honor an older woman as you would your mother, and the younger women as sisters. (1 Timothy 5:1-2 MSG)

6.   I write to you, fathers, because you have come to know (recognize, be conscious of, and understand) Him Who [has existed] from the beginning. I write to you, young men, because you are strong and vigorous, and the Word of God is [always] abiding in you (in your hearts), and you have been victorious over the wicked one. (1 John 2:14 AMP)

7.   Then the LORD God made a woman from the rib, and he brought her to the man. “At last!” the man exclaimed. “This one is bone from my bone, and flesh from my flesh! She will be called ‘woman,’ because she was taken from ‘man.’” This explains why a man leaves his father and mother and is joined to his wife, and the two are united into one. (Genesis 2:22-24 NLT)

8.   The father of godly children has cause for joy. What a pleasure to have children who are wise. (Proverbs 23:24 NLT)

9.   We have heard with our ears, O God; our fathers have told us what work You did in their days, in the days of old. (Psalm 44:1 AMP)

10.   Good friend, follow your father’s good advice; don’t wander off from your mother’s teachings. Wrap yourself in them from head to foot; wear them like a scarf around your neck. Wherever you walk, they’ll guide you; whenever you rest, they’ll guard you; when you wake up, they’ll tell you what’s next. For sound advice is a beacon, good teaching is a light, moral discipline is a life path. (Proverbs 6:20-23 MSG)
