Scriptural Meditation- 1 Thessalonians 2:11-12

for you know that we treated each one of you the way a father treats his children — we encouraged you and comforted you and appealed to you to lead lives worthy of The Most High, who calls you into his Kingdom and glory.


It has been said that a parent who raises their children is a failure, because the object of parenting is to raise adults. This verse beautifully frames fatherhood as leading by example and raising up the next generation to be more than they currently are, to be who Our Father wants us to be. May you merit to raise children who will eagerly join the Kingdom of Heaven.
