Why Fathers Matter

For You From The Word

He will turn the hearts of fathers to their children and the hearts of children to their fathers. (Malachi 4:6, ESV)

For You To Think About

dad and kidsWhen a father is involved in a child’s life, the child is …

  • 4 times as less likely to be poor
  • Two-thirds more likely to finish high school
  • One-tenth as likely to abuse chemical substances
  • One-quarter as likely to face a teen pregnancy
  • One-twentieth as likely to be incarcerated
  • Half as likely to commit suicide

It’s a fact: when a father is involved in a child’s life, the child is significantly at less risk for negative outcomes and more likely to experience a more positive and productive life.

For You To Pray

Loving Father,
Thank you for fathers and fatherhood. Help fathers know how important they are to their children. Move in them to be involved in their children’s lives.
In Jesus’ name, Amen.
