God's Promises for Fathers
God Fills You With Joy When

Your Family Gives Praises To The Lord


2 Samuel 22:4

4 I will call upon the LORD, who is worthy to be praised;
So shall I be saved from my enemies.

Psalm 89:1-4

1 I will sing of the mercies of the LORD forever;
With my mouth will I make known Your faithfulness to all generations.

2 For I have said, “Mercy shall be built up forever;
Your faithfulness You shall establish in the very heavens.”

3 “I have made a covenant with My chosen,
I have sworn to My servant David:

4 ‘Your seed I will establish forever,
And build up your throne to all generations.’” Selah

Psalm 100:3-5

3 Know that the LORD, He is God;
It is He who has made us, and not we ourselves;[a]
We are His people and the sheep of His pasture.

4 Enter into His gates with thanksgiving,
And into His courts with praise.
Be thankful to Him, and bless His name.

5 For the LORD is good;
His mercy is everlasting,
And His truth endures to all generations.

Psalm 102:18

18 This will be written for the generation to come,
That a people yet to be created may praise the LORD.

Psalm 115:14-18

14 May the LORD give you increase more and more,
You and your children.

15 May you be blessed by the LORD,
Who made heaven and earth.

16 The heaven, even the heavens, are the LORD’s;
But the earth He has given to the children of men.

17 The dead do not praise the LORD,
Nor any who go down into silence.

18 But we will bless the LORD
From this time forth and forevermore.

Psalm 145:1-4

1 I will extol You, my God, O King;
And I will bless Your name forever and ever.

2 Every day I will bless You,
And I will praise Your name forever and ever.

3 Great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised;
And His greatness is unsearchable.

4 One generation shall praise Your works to another,
And shall declare Your mighty acts.

Psalm 148:12-14

12 Both young men and maidens;
Old men and children.

13 Let them praise the name of the LORD,
For His name alone is exalted;
His glory is above the earth and heaven.

14 And He has exalted the horn of His people,
The praise of all His saints—
Of the children of Israel,
A people near to Him.

Praise the LORD!

Psalm 150:1-6

1 Praise the LORD!

Praise God in His sanctuary;
Praise Him in His mighty firmament!

2 Praise Him for His mighty acts;
Praise Him according to His excellent greatness!

3 Praise Him with the sound of the trumpet;
Praise Him with the lute and harp!

4 Praise Him with the timbrel and dance;
Praise Him with stringed instruments and flutes!

5 Praise Him with loud cymbals;
Praise Him with clashing cymbals!

6 Let everything that has breath praise the LORD.

Praise the LORD!

Isaiah 43:21

21 This people I have formed for Myself;
They shall declare My praise.

Daniel 2:23

23 “ I thank You and praise You,
O God of my fathers;
You have given me wisdom and might,
And have now made known to me what we asked of You,
For You have made known to us the king’s demand.”

Daniel 4:1-3

1 Nebuchadnezzar the king,

To all peoples, nations, and languages that dwell in all the earth:


Peace be multiplied to you.


2 I thought it good to declare the signs and wonders that the Most High God has worked for me.


3 How great are His signs,
And how mighty His wonders!
His kingdom is an everlasting kingdom,
And His dominion is from generation to generation.

Zechariah 2:10

10 This they shall have for their pride,
Because they have reproached and made arrogant threats
Against the people of the LORD of hosts.

1 Peter 2:9

9 But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light;

God's Promises for Fathers
God Listens To Your
Prayers When

You're Overwhelmed by Your
Family Responsibilities


Deuteronomy 31:6

6 Be strong and of good courage, do not fear nor be afraid of them; for the LORD your God, He is the One who goes with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you.”

Psalm 77:1,3

1 I cried out to God with my voice—
To God with my voice;
And He gave ear to me.

3 I remembered God, and was troubled;
I complained, and my spirit was overwhelmed. Selah

Psalm 127:1-5

1 Unless the LORD builds the house,
They labor in vain who build it;
Unless the LORD guards the city,
The watchman stays awake in vain.

2 It is vain for you to rise up early,
To sit up late,
To eat the bread of sorrows;
For so He gives His beloved sleep.

3 Behold, children are a heritage from the LORD,
The fruit of the womb is a reward.

4 Like arrows in the hand of a warrior,
So are the children of one’s youth.

5 Happy is the man who has his quiver full of them;
They shall not be ashamed,
But shall speak with their enemies in the gate.

Proverbs 3:5-7

5 Trust in the LORD with all your heart,
And lean not on your own understanding;

6 In all your ways acknowledge Him,
And He shall direct[a] your paths.

7 Do not be wise in your own eyes;
Fear the LORD and depart from evil.

Isaiah 40:26

26 Lift up your eyes on high,
And see who has created these things,
Who brings out their host by number;
He calls them all by name,
By the greatness of His might
And the strength of His power;
Not one is missing.

Isaiah 40:29

29 He gives power to the weak,
And to those who have no might He increases strength.

Isaiah 43:2,5-7

2 When you pass through the waters, I will be with you;
And through the rivers, they shall not overflow you.
When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned,
Nor shall the flame scorch you.

5 Fear not, for I am with you;
I will bring your descendants from the east,
And gather you from the west;

6 I will say to the north, ‘Give them up!’
And to the south, ‘Do not keep them back!’
Bring My sons from afar,
And My daughters from the ends of the earth—

7 Everyone who is called by My name,
Whom I have created for My glory;
I have formed him, yes, I have made him.”

Isaiah 54:10

10 For the mountains shall depart
And the hills be removed,
But My kindness shall not depart from you,
Nor shall My covenant of peace be removed,”
Says the LORD, who has mercy on you.

2 Thessalonians 2:15-17

15 Therefore, brethren, stand fast and hold the traditions which you were taught, whether by word or our epistle.

16 Now may our Lord Jesus Christ Himself, and our God and Father, who has loved us and given us everlasting consolation and good hope by grace,

17 comfort your hearts and establish you in every good word and work.

God's Promises for Fathers
God Listens To Your
Prayers When

You Admit To Your Shortcomings As A Father


Deuteronomy 4:9

9 Only take heed to yourself, and diligently keep yourself, lest you forget the things your eyes have seen, and lest they depart from your heart all the days of your life. And teach them to your children and your grandchildren,

Deuteronomy 28:1,4

1 “Now it shall come to pass, if you diligently obey the voice of the LORD your God, to observe carefully all His commandments which I command you today, that the LORD your God will set you high above all nations of the earth.

4 “Blessed shall be the fruit of your body, the produce of your ground and the increase of your herds, the increase of your cattle and the offspring of your flocks.

Psalm 31:24

24 Be of good courage,
And He shall strengthen your heart,
All you who hope in the LORD.

Psalm 71:12,15-18

12 O God, do not be far from me;
O my God, make haste to help me!

15 My mouth shall tell of Your righteousness
And Your salvation all the day,
For I do not know their limits.

16 I will go in the strength of the Lord GOD;
I will make mention of Your righteousness, of Yours only.

17 O God, You have taught me from my youth;
And to this day I declare Your wondrous works.

18 Now also when I am old and grayheaded,
O God, do not forsake me,
Until I declare Your strength to this generation,
Your power to everyone who is to come.

Proverbs 15:29-33

29 The LORD is far from the wicked,
But He hears the prayer of the righteous.

30 The light of the eyes rejoices the heart,
And a good report makes the bones healthy.[e]

31 The ear that hears the rebukes of life
Will abide among the wise.

32 He who disdains instruction despises his own soul,
But he who heeds rebuke gets understanding.

33 The fear of the LORD is the instruction of wisdom,
And before honor is humility.

Proverbs 28:13

13 He who covers his sins will not prosper,
But whoever confesses and forsakes them will have mercy.

Isaiah 44:3,4

3 For I will pour water on him who is thirsty,
And floods on the dry ground;
I will pour My Spirit on your descendants,
And My blessing on your offspring;

4 They will spring up among the grass
Like willows by the watercourses.’

Jeremiah 33:3

3 ‘Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know.’

Daniel 10:17-21

17 For how can this servant of my lord talk with you, my lord? As for me, no strength remains in me now, nor is any breath left in me.”

18 Then again, the one having the likeness of a man touched me and strengthened me.

19 And he said, “O man greatly beloved, fear not! Peace be to you; be strong, yes, be strong!”
So when he spoke to me I was strengthened, and said, “Let my lord speak, for you have strengthened me.”

20 Then he said, “Do you know why I have come to you? And now I must return to fight with the prince of Persia; and when I have gone forth, indeed the prince of Greece will come.

21 But I will tell you what is noted in the Scripture of Truth. (No one upholds me against these, except Michael your prince.

Nahum 1:7

7 The LORD is good,
A stronghold in the day of trouble;
And He knows those who trust in Him.

1 Corinthians 3:7-9

7 So then neither he who plants is anything, nor he who waters, but God who gives the increase.

8 Now he who plants and he who waters are one, and each one will receive his own reward according to his own labor.

9 For we are God’s fellow workers; you are God’s field, you are God’s building.

Taken from the New King James Version
God's Promises for Fathers
God Listens To Your
Prayers When

You Ask For His Spirit's Guidance


Psalm 91:11-16

11 For He shall give His angels charge over you,
To keep you in all your ways.

12 In their hands they shall bear you up,
Lest you dash your foot against a stone.

13 You shall tread upon the lion and the cobra,
The young lion and the serpent you shall trample underfoot.

14 “Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore I will deliver him;
I will set him on high, because he has known My name.

15 He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him;
I will be with him in trouble;
I will deliver him and honor him.

16 With long life I will satisfy him,
And show him My salvation.”

Psalm 143:10,11

10 Teach me to do Your will,
For You are my God;
Your Spirit is good.
Lead me in the land of uprightness.

11 Revive me, O LORD, for Your name’s sake!
For Your righteousness’ sake bring my soul out of trouble.

Romans 8:31,32

31 What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?

32 He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things?

1 Corinthians 2:10-16

10 But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God.

11 For what man knows the things of a man except the spirit of the man which is in him? Even so no one knows the things of God except the Spirit of God.

12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might know the things that have been freely given to us by God.

13 These things we also speak, not in words which man’s wisdom teaches but which the Holy[d] Spirit teaches, comparing spiritual things with spiritual.

14 But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.

15 But he who is spiritual judges all things, yet he himself is rightly judged by no one.

16 For “who has known the mind of the LORD that he may instruct Him?”[e] But we have the mind of Christ.

2 Corinthians 3:17,18

17 Now the Lord is the Spirit; and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.

18 But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord.

Galatians 5:5

5 For we through the Spirit eagerly wait for the hope of righteousness by faith.

Galatians 5:16-26

16 I say then: Walk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh.

17 For the flesh lusts against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; and these are contrary to one another, so that you do not do the things that you wish.

18 But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law.

19 Now the works of the flesh are evident, which are: adultery,[c] fornication, uncleanness, lewdness,

20 idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies,

21 envy, murders,[d] drunkenness, revelries, and the like; of which I tell you beforehand, just as I also told you in time past, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.

22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,

23 gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law.

24 And those who are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.

25 If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.

26 Let us not become conceited, provoking one another, envying one another.

1 John 4:13

13 By this we know that we abide in Him, and He in us, because He has given us of His Spirit.

Taken from the New King James Version
God's Promises for Fathers
God Listens To Your
Prayers When

You Ask For His Patience

Ecclesiastes 7:8

8 The end of a thing is better than its beginning;
The patient in spirit is better than the proud in spirit.

Daniel 12:12

12 Blessed is he who waits, and comes to the one thousand three hundred and thirty-five days.

Romans 5:3

3 And not only that, but we also glory in tribulations, knowing that tribulation produces perseverance;

Romans 15:3-5

3 For even Christ did not please Himself; but as it is written, “The reproaches of those who reproached You fell on Me.”[a]

4 For whatever things were written before were written for our learning, that we through the patience and comfort of the Scriptures might have hope.

5 Now may the God of patience and comfort grant you to be like-minded toward one another, according to Christ Jesus,

Philippians 2:1-4

1 Therefore if there is any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any affection and mercy,

2 fulfill my joy by being like-minded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind.

3 Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself.

4 Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others.

Colossians 3:21

21 Fathers, do not provoke your children, lest they become discouraged.

1 Thessalonians 5:14

14 Now we exhort you, brethren, warn those who are unruly, comfort the fainthearted, uphold the weak, be patient with all.

2 Timothy 2:24

24 And a servant of the Lord must not quarrel but be gentle to all, able to teach, patient,

Hebrews 12:1

1 Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us,

James 1:2-4

2 My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials,

3 knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience.

4 But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing.

Taken from the New King James Version
God's Promises for Fathers
God Listens To Your
Prayers When

Your Children Disappoint You


Deuteronomy 4:31

31 (for the LORD your God is a merciful God), He will not forsake you nor destroy you, nor forget the covenant of your fathers which He swore to them.

1 Samuel 2:12,13,15-17,22-25

12 Now the sons of Eli were corrupt;[b] they did not know the LORD.

13 And the priests’ custom with the people was that when any man offered a sacrifice, the priest’s servant would come with a three-pronged fleshhook in his hand while the meat was boiling.

15 Also, before they burned the fat, the priest’s servant would come and say to the man who sacrificed, “Give meat for roasting to the priest, for he will not take boiled meat from you, but raw.”

16 And if the man said to him, “They should really burn the fat first; then you may take as much as your heart desires,” he would then answer him, “No, but you must give it now; and if not, I will take it by force.”

17 Therefore the sin of the young men was very great before the LORD, for men abhorred the offering of the LORD.

22 Now Eli was very old; and he heard everything his sons did to all Israel,[c] and how they lay with the women who assembled at the door of the tabernacle of meeting.

23 So he said to them, “Why do you do such things? For I hear of your evil dealings from all the people.

24 No, my sons! For it is not a good report that I hear. You make the LORD’s people transgress.

25 If one man sins against another, God will judge him. But if a man sins against the LORD, who will intercede for him?” Nevertheless they did not heed the voice of their father, because the LORD desired to kill them.

2 Samuel 18:31-33

31 Just then the Cushite came, and the Cushite said, “There is good news, my lord the king! For the LORD has avenged you this day of all those who rose against you.”
32 And the king said to the Cushite, “Is the young man Absalom safe?”
So the Cushite answered, “May the enemies of my lord the king, and all who rise against you to do harm, be like that young man!”
David’s Mourning for Absalom

33 Then the king was deeply moved, and went up to the chamber over the gate, and wept. And as he went, he said thus: “O my son Absalom—my son, my son Absalom—if only I had died in your place! O Absalom my son, my son!”

Psalm 92:13-15

13 Those who are planted in the house of the LORD
Shall flourish in the courts of our God.

14 They shall still bear fruit in old age;
They shall be fresh and flourishing,

15 To declare that the LORD is upright;
He is my rock, and there is no unrighteousness in Him.

Psalm 94:14,15

14 For the LORD will not cast off His people,
Nor will He forsake His inheritance.

15 But judgment will return to righteousness,
And all the upright in heart will follow it.

Psalm 147:3

3 He heals the brokenhearted
And binds up their wounds.

Proverbs 17:2

2 A wise servant will rule over a son who causes shame,
And will share an inheritance among the brothers.

Isaiah 44:10

10 Who would form a god or mold an image
Thatprofits him nothing?

Isaiah 49:4,8-11

4 Then I said, ‘I have labored in vain,
I have spent my strength for nothing and in vain;
Yet surely my just reward is with the LORD,
And my work with my God.’”

8 Thus says the LORD:


“ In an acceptable time I have heard You,
And in the day of salvation I have helped You;
I will preserve You and give You
As a covenant to the people,
To restore the earth,
To cause them to inherit the desolate heritages;

9 That You may say to the prisoners, ‘Go forth,’
To those who are in darkness, ‘Show yourselves.’


“ They shall feed along the roads,
And their pastures shall be on all desolate heights.

10 They shall neither hunger nor thirst,
Neither heat nor sun shall strike them;
For He who has mercy on them will lead them,
Even by the springs of water He will guide them.

11 I will make each of My mountains a road,
And My highways shall be elevated.

Isaiah 51:11

11 So the ransomed of the LORD shall return,
And come to Zion with singing,
With everlasting joy on their heads.
They shall obtain joy and gladness;
Sorrow and sighing shall flee away.

Isaiah 53:6

6 All we like sheep have gone astray;
We have turned, every one, to his own way;
And the LORD has laid on Him the iniquity of us all.

Isaiah 54:7,13

7 “ For a mere moment I have forsaken you,
But with great mercies I will gather you.

13 All your children shall be taught by the LORD,
And great shall be the peace of your children.

John 14:18

18 I will not leave you orphans; I will come to you.

Romans 11:16

16 For if the firstfruit is holy, the lump is also holy; and if the root is holy, so are the branches.

1 Corinthians 4:4,5

4 For I know of nothing against myself, yet I am not justified by this; but He who judges me is the Lord.

5 Therefore judge nothing before the time, until the Lord comes, who will both bring to light the hidden things of darkness and reveal the counsels of the hearts. Then each one’s praise will come from God.

Taken from the New King James Version
God's Promises for Fathers
God Challenges You To

Bring Your Tithe Into The Storehouse

Deuteronomy 16:16,17

16 “Three times a year all your males shall appear before the LORD your God in the place which He chooses: at the Feast of Unleavened Bread, at the Feast of Weeks, and at the Feast of Tabernacles; and they shall not appear before the LORD empty-handed.

17 Every man shall give as he is able, according to the blessing of the LORD your God which He has given you.

Psalm 92:12

12 The righteous shall flourish like a palm tree,
He shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon.

Psalm 96:7-0

7 Give to the LORD, O families of the peoples,
Give to the LORD glory and strength.

8 Give to the LORD the glory due His name;
Bring an offering, and come into His courts.

9 Oh, worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness!
Tremble before Him, all the earth.

Proverbs 3:9,10

9 Honor the LORD with your possessions,
And with the firstfruits of all your increase;

10 So your barns will be filled with plenty,
And your vats will overflow with new wine.

Malachi 3:8-12

8 “ Will a man rob God?
Yet you have robbed Me!
But you say,

‘ In what way have we robbed You?’
In tithes and offerings.

9 You are cursed with a curse,
For you have robbed Me,
Even this whole nation.

10 Bring all the tithes into the storehouse,
That there may be food in My house,
And try Me now in this,”
Says the LORD of hosts,

“ If I will not open for you the windows of heaven
And pour out for you such blessing
That there will not be room enough to receive it.

11 “ And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes,
So that he will not destroy the fruit of your ground,
Nor shall the vine fail to bear fruit for you in the field,”
Says the LORD of hosts;

12 And all nations will call you blessed,
For you will be a delightful land,”
Says the LORD of hosts.

Luke 6:38

38 Give, and it will be given to you: good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over will be put into your bosom. For with the same measure that you use, it will be measured back to you.”

1 Corinthians 16:1,2

1 Now concerning the collection for the saints, as I have given orders to the churches of Galatia, so you must do also:

2 On the first day of the week let each one of you lay something aside, storing up as he may prosper, that there be no collections when I come.

2 Corinthians 9:6-12

6 But this I say: He who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully.

7 So let each one give as he purposes in his heart, not grudgingly or of necessity; for God loves a cheerful giver.

8 And God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that you, always having all sufficiency in all things, may have an abundance for every good work.

9 As it is written:


“ He has dispersed abroad,
He has given to the poor;
His righteousness endures forever.”[b]

10 Now may[c] He who supplies seed to the sower, and bread for food, supply and multiply the seed you have sown and increase the fruits of your righteousness,

11 while you are enriched in everything for all liberality, which causes thanksgiving through us to God.

12 For the administration of this service not only supplies the needs of the saints, but also is abounding through many thanksgivings to God,

Never Stop Loving Your Wife


Genesis 2:18

18 And the LORD God said, “It is not good that man should be alone; I will make him a helper comparable to him.”

Genesis 2:21-25

21 And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall on Adam, and he slept; and He took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh in its place.

22 Then the rib which the LORD God had taken from man He made into a woman, and He brought her to the man.

23 And Adam said:
“This is now bone of my bones
And flesh of my flesh;
She shall be called Woman,
Because she was taken out of Man.”
24 Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and they shall become one flesh.


25 And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.

Psalm 103:5

5 Who satisfies your mouth with good things,
So that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.

Proverbs 5:18,19

18 Let your fountain be blessed,
And rejoice with the wife of your youth.


19 As a loving deer and a graceful doe,
Let her breasts satisfy you at all times;
And always be enraptured with her love.

Proverbs 18:22

22 He who finds a wife finds a good thing,
And obtains favor from the LORD.

Proverbs 19:14

14 Houses and riches are an inheritance from fathers,
But a prudent wife is from the LORD.

Ecclesiates 9:9

9 Live joyfully with the wife whom you love all the days of your vain life which He has given you under the sun, all your days of vanity; for that is your portion in life, and in the labor which you perform under the sun.

Song of Solomon 4:10-16

10 How fair is your love,
My sister, my spouse!
How much better than wine is your love,
And the scent of your perfumes
Than all spices!


11 Your lips, O my spouse,
Drip as the honeycomb;
Honey and milk are under your tongue;
And the fragrance of your garments
Is like the fragrance of Lebanon.


12 A garden enclosed
Is my sister, my spouse,
A spring shut up,
A fountain sealed.


13 Your plants are an orchard of pomegranates
With pleasant fruits,
Fragrant henna with spikenard,


14 Spikenard and saffron,
Calamus and cinnamon,
With all trees of frankincense,
Myrrh and aloes,
With all the chief spices—


15 A fountain of gardens,
A well of living waters,
And streams from Lebanon.

THE Shulamite
16 Awake, O north wind,
And come, O south!
Blow upon my garden,
That its spices may flow out.
Let my beloved come to his garden
And eat its pleasant fruits.

Song of Solomon 8:7

7 Many waters cannot quench love,
Nor can the floods drown it.
If a man would give for love
All the wealth of his house,
It would be utterly despised.

Matthew 19:4-6

4 And He answered and said to them, “Have you not read that He who made[a]them at the beginning ‘made them male and female,’[b]

5 and said, ‘For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’?[c]

6 So then, they are no longer two but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let not man separate.”

Mark 10:6-9

6 But from the beginning of the creation, God ‘made them male and female.’[a]

7 ‘For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife,

8 and the two shall become one flesh’;[b] so then they are no longer two, but one flesh.

9 Therefore what God has joined together, let not man separate.”

1 Corrinthians 7:2-6

2 Nevertheless, because of sexual immorality, let each man have his own wife, and let each woman have her own husband.

3 Let the husband render to his wife the affection due her, and likewise also the wife to her husband.

4 The wife does not have authority over her own body, but the husband does. And likewise the husband does not have authority over his own body, but the wife does.

5 Do not deprive one another except with consent for a time, that you may give yourselves to fasting and prayer; and come together again so that Satan does not tempt you because of your lack of self-control.

6 But I say this as a concession, not as a commandment.

Hebrews 13:4

4 Marriage is honorable among all, and the bed undefiled; but fornicators and adulterers God will judge.

God Challenges You To

Deal Honestly With Those
Close To You


2 Samuel 12:1-7

1 Then the LORD sent Nathan to David. And he came to him, and said to him: “There were two men in one city, one rich and the other poor.

2 The rich man had exceedingly many flocks and herds.

3 But the poor man had nothing, except one little ewe lamb which he had bought and nourished; and it grew up together with him and with his children. It ate of his own food and drank from his own cup and lay in his bosom; and it was like a daughter to him.

4 And a traveler came to the rich man, who refused to take from his own flock and from his own herd to prepare one for the wayfaring man who had come to him; but he took the poor man’s lamb and prepared it for the man who had come to him.”

5 So David’s anger was greatly aroused against the man, and he said to Nathan, “As the LORD lives, the man who has done this shall surely die!

6 And he shall restore fourfold for the lamb, because he did this thing and because he had no pity.”

7 Then Nathan said to David, “You are the man! Thus says the LORD God of Israel: ‘I anointed you king over Israel, and I delivered you from the hand of Saul.

Psalm 119:43-45

43 And take not the word of truth utterly out of my mouth,
For I have hoped in Your ordinances.

44 So shall I keep Your law continually,
Forever and ever.

45 And I will walk at liberty,
For I seek Your precepts.

Proverbs 3:27

27 Do not withhold good from those to whom it is due,
When it is in the power of your hand to do so.

Proverbs 12:22

22 Lying lips are an abomination to the LORD,
But those who deal truthfully are His delight.

Proverbs 29:1

1 He who is often rebuked, and hardens his neck,
Will suddenly be destroyed, and that without remedy.

Jeremiah 31:29

29 In those days they shall say no more:


‘ The fathers have eaten sour grapes,
And the children’s teeth are set on edge.’

Matthew 7:1-5

3 And why do you look at the speck in your brother’s eye, but do not consider the plank in your own eye? 4 Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Let me remove the speck from your eye’; and look, a plank is in your own eye?

5 Hypocrite! First remove the plank from your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.

Ephesians 4:21-25

21 if indeed you have heard Him and have been taught by Him, as the truth is in Jesus:

22 that you put off, concerning your former conduct, the old man which grows corrupt according to the deceitful lusts,

23 and be renewed in the spirit of your mind,

24 and that you put on the new man which was created according to God, in true righteousness and holiness.

25 Therefore, putting away lying, “ Let each one of you speak truth with his neighbor,”[e] for we are members of one another.

10 and have put on the new man who is renewed in knowledge according to the image of Him who created him,

God's Promises for Fathers
God Challenges You To

Share Your Faith With
Your Children


Deuteronomy 6:6-9

6And(G) these words that I command you today shall be on your heart.

7(H) You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise.

8(I) You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes.

9(J) You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.

Matthew 18:2-6,10-14

2 Then Jesus called a little child to Him, set him in the midst of them,

3 and said, “Assuredly, I say to you, unless you are converted and become as little children, you will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven.

4 Therefore whoever humbles himself as this little child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.

5 Whoever receives one little child like this in My name receives Me.
Jesus Warns of Offenses

6 “Whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to sin, it would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck, and he were drowned in the depth of the sea.

10 “Take heed that you do not despise one of these little ones, for I say to you that in heaven their angels always see the face of My Father who is in heaven.

11 For the Son of Man has come to save that which was lost.[a]

12 “What do you think? If a man has a hundred sheep, and one of them goes astray, does he not leave the ninety-nine and go to the mountains to seek the one that is straying?
13 And if he should find it, assuredly, I say to you, he rejoices more over that sheep than over the ninety-nine that did not go astray.

14 Even so it is not the will of your Father who is in heaven that one of these little ones should perish.

Mark 10:13-16

13 Then they brought little children to Him, that He might touch them; but the disciples rebuked those who brought them.

14 But when Jesus saw it, He was greatly displeased and said to them, “Let the little children come to Me, and do not forbid them; for of such is the kingdom of God.

15 Assuredly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God as a little child will by no means enter it.”

16 And He took them up in His arms, laid His hands on them, and blessed them.

Acts 16:27-33

27And the keeper of the prison awaking out of his sleep, and seeing the prison doors open, he drew out his sword, and would have killed himself, supposing that the prisoners had been fled.
28But Paul cried with a loud voice, saying, Do thyself no harm: for we are all here.

29Then he called for a light, and sprang in, and came trembling, and fell down before Paul and Silas,

30And brought them out, and said, Sirs, what must I do to be saved?

31And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.

32And they spake unto him the word of the Lord, and to all that were in his house.

33And he took them the same hour of the night, and washed their stripes; and was baptized, he and all his, straightway.

Romans 10:8-11

8But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach;

9That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.

10For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

11For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.

Galatians 3:23-27

23But before faith came, we were kept under the law, shut up unto the faith which should afterwards be revealed.

24Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith.

25But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster.

26For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.

27For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ.

Ephesians 4:12-15

12(AE) to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for(AF) building up(AG) the body of Christ,

13until we all attain to(AH) the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God,(AI) to mature manhood,[d] to the measure of the stature of(AJ) the fullness of Christ,

14so that we may no longer be children,(AK) tossed to and fro by the waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by human cunning, by craftiness in(AL) deceitful schemes.

15Rather,(AM) speaking the truth in love, we are to(AN) grow up in every way into him who is(AO) the head, into Christ,

1 Timothy 2:3,4

3For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour;

4Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.

James 5:19,20

19My brothers,(AI) if anyone among you wanders from the truth and someone(AJ) brings him back, 20let him know that whoever brings back a sinner from his wandering(AK) will save his soul from death and(AL) will cover a multitude of sins.

(FB) give me life, O LORD, according to your word!

108Accept(FC) my freewill offerings of praise, O LORD,
and(FD) teach me your rules.

109I hold my life(FE) in my hand continually,
but I do not(FF) forget your law.

Proverbs 23:12

12Apply your heart to instruction
and your ear to words of knowledge.

Luke 18:10-14

10"Two men(O) went up into the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector.

11The Pharisee,(P) standing by himself, prayed[a](Q) thus: 'God, I thank you that I am not like other men, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even like this tax collector.

12(R) I fast twice a week;(S) I give tithes of all that I get.'

13But the tax collector,(T) standing far off,(U) would not even lift up his eyes to heaven, but(V) beat his breast, saying, 'God,(W) be merciful to me, a sinner!'

14I tell you, this man went down to his house justified, rather than the other. For(X) everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, but the one who humbles himself will be exalted."

Romans 8:4-6

4in order that(I) the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us,(J) who walk not according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.

5For(K) those who live according to the flesh set their minds on(L) the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit set their minds on(M) the things of the Spirit.

6For to set(N) the mind on the flesh is death, but to set the mind on the Spirit is life and peace.

Romans 13:11-14

11Besides this you know the time, that the hour has come for you(M) to wake from sleep.(N) For salvation is nearer to us now than when we first believed.

12(O) The night is far gone; the day is at hand. So then let us(P) cast off(Q) the works of darkness and(R) put on the armor of light.

13(S) Let us walk properly as in the daytime,(T) not in orgies and drunkenness, not in sexual immorality and sensuality,(U) not in quarreling and jealousy.

14But(V) put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh,(W) to gratify its desires.

1 Corinthians 10:21-23

21(AG) You cannot drink the cup of the Lord and(AH) the cup of demons. You cannot partake of the table of the Lord and(AI) the table of demons.

22(AJ) Shall we provoke the Lord to jealousy?(AK) Are we stronger than he?
Do All to the Glory of God
23(AL) "All things are lawful," but not all things are helpful. "All things are lawful," but not all things build up.

1Since we have these promises, beloved,(A) let us cleanse ourselves from every defilement of body[a] and spirit, bringing holiness to completion in the fear of God.

1 Timothy 6:12

12(Y) Fight the good fight of the faith.(Z) Take hold of the eternal life(AA) to which you were called and about which you made(AB) the good confession in the presence of many witnesses.

16since it is written,(AM) "You shall be holy, for I am holy."

1 John 2:3-6

3And by this we know that we have come to know him, if we(D) keep his commandments.

4Whoever says "I know him" but does not keep his commandments(E) is a liar, and the truth is not in him,

5but whoever(F) keeps his word, in him truly(G) the love of God is perfected.(H) By this we may know that we are in him:

1 John 5:1-3

1(A) The elder to the beloved Gaius,(B) whom I love in truth.
2Beloved, I pray that all may go well with you and that you may be in good health, as it goes well with your soul.

3For(C) I rejoiced greatly when the brothers[a] came and testified to your truth, as indeed you are walking in the truth.

4I have no greater joy than to hear that(D) my children are walking in the truth.

God's Promises for Fathers
God Challenges You To

Teach Your Children To Love God


Matthew 19:13-15

13(R) Then children were brought to him that he might lay his hands on them and pray. The disciples(S) rebuked the people,

14but Jesus said, (T) "Let the little children(U) come to me and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven."

15And he laid his hands on them and went away.

John 1:11,12

11After saying these things, he said to them, "Our friend Lazarus(N) has fallen asleep, but I go to awaken him."

12The disciples said to him, "Lord, if he has fallen asleep, he will recover."

John 3:3-7

3Jesus answered him, "Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is(G) born(H) again[b] he cannot(I) see the kingdom of God."

4Nicodemus said to him, "How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter a second time into his mother’s womb and be born?"

5Jesus answered, "Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born(J) of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God.

6(K) That which is born of the flesh is(L) flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.[c]

7(M) Do not marvel that I said to you, 'You[d] must be born(N) again.'

1 John 2:12-17

12I am writing to you, little children,
because(T) your sins are forgiven for his name’s sake.

13I am writing to you, fathers,
because you know(U) him who is from the beginning.
I am writing to you, young men,
because(V) you have overcome the evil one.
I write to you, children,
because(W) you know the Father.

14I write to you, fathers,
because you know(X) him who is from the beginning.
I write to you, young men,
because(Y) you are strong,
and the word of God abides in you,
and you have overcome the evil one.
Do Not Love the World
15(Z) Do not love the world or the things in the world.(AA) If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.

16For all that is in the world—(AB) the desires of the flesh and(AC) the desires of the eyes and pride in possessions—is not from the Father but is from the world.

17And(AD) the world is passing away along with its desires, but whoever does the will of God abides forever.

1 John 4:7-21

7Beloved,(Q) let us love one another, for love is from God, and(R) whoever loves has been born of God and knows God.

8(S) Anyone who does not love does not know God, because(T) God is love.

9In this the love of God was made manifest among us, that(U) God sent his only Son into the world, so that we might live through him.

10In this is love,(V) not that we have loved God(W) but that he loved us and sent his Son to be(X) the propitiation for our sins.

11Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.

12(Y) No one has ever seen God; if we love one another, God abides in us and(Z) his love is perfected in us.
13(AA) By this we know that we abide in him and he in us, because he has given us of his Spirit.

14And(AB) we have seen and testify that(AC) the Father has sent his Son to be the Savior of(AD) the world.

15(AE) Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides in him, and he in God.

16So(AF) we have come to know and to believe the love that God has for us.(AG) God is love, and(AH) whoever abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him.

17By this(AI) is love perfected with us, so that(AJ) we may have confidence for the day of judgment, because(AK) as he is so also are we in this world.

18There is no fear in love, but(AL) perfect love casts out fear. For fear has to do with punishment, and whoever fears has not(AM) been perfected in love.

19(AN) We love because he first loved us.

20(AO) If anyone says, "I love God," and(AP) hates his brother, he is a liar; for he who does not love his brother whom he has seen cannot[a] love God(AQ) whom he has not seen.

21And(AR) this commandment we have from him:(AS) whoever loves God must also love his brother.

Taken from the New King James Version
God's Promises for Fathers
God Protects You When

You Feel Depressed And
Lose Your Way


Psalm 106:8

8Yet he saved them(L) for his name’s sake,
(M) that he might make known his mighty power.

Luke 17:33

33(AS) Whoever seeks to preserve his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life will(AT) keep it.

Hebrews 10:36,37

36For(BE) you have need of endurance, so that(BF) when you have done the will of God you may(BG) receive what is promised. 37For,

(BH) "Yet a little while,
and(BI) the coming one will come and will not delay;

Hebrews 11:1-3,13

1Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of(A) things not seen.

2For by it the people of old received their commendation.

3By faith we understand that the universe was created by(B) the word of God, so that what is seen was not made out of(C) things that are visible.

13These all died in faith,(Y) not having received the things promised, but(Z) having seen them and greeted them from afar, and(AA) having acknowledged that they were(AB) strangers and exiles on the earth.

Hebrews 12:4-6

4In your struggle against sin you have not yet resisted to the point of shedding your blood.

5And have you forgotten the exhortation that addresses you as sons?

(J) "My son,(K) do not regard lightly the discipline of the Lord,
nor be weary when reproved by him.

6For(L) the Lord disciplines the one he loves,
and chastises every son whom he receives."

Hebrews 13:6

6So we can confidently say,

(J) "The Lord is my helper;
(K) I will not fear;
what can man do to me?"

James 1:12-16

12(U) Blessed is the man who remains steadfast under trial, for when he has stood the test he will receive(V) the crown of life,(W) which God has promised to those who love him.

13Let no one say when he is tempted, "I am being tempted by God," for God cannot be tempted with evil, and he himself tempts no one.

14But each person is tempted when he is lured and enticed by his own desire.

15Then desire(X) when it has conceived gives birth to sin, and(Y) sin when it is fully grown brings forth death.
16Do not be deceived, my beloved brothers.

James 4:7-10

7Submit yourselves therefore to God.(H) Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.

8(I) Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you.(J) Cleanse your hands, you sinners, and(K) purify your hearts,(L) you double-minded.

9(M) Be wretched and mourn and weep. Let your laughter be turned to mourning and your joy to gloom.

10(N) Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will exalt you.

1 Peter 3:16-18

16(Z) having a good conscience, so that,(AA) when you are slandered, those who revile your good behavior in Christ may be put to shame.

17For(AB) it is better to suffer for doing good, if that should be God’s will, than for doing evil.

18For Christ also(AC) suffered[b](AD) once for sins, the righteous for the unrighteous,(AE) that he might bring us to God, being put to death(AF) in the flesh but made alive(AG) in the spirit,



1 Peter 4:16,19

16Yet(AH) if anyone suffers as a(AI) Christian, let him not be ashamed, but let him glorify God(AJ) in that name.

19Therefore let those who suffer according to God’s will(AO) entrust their souls to a faithful Creator while doing good.

2 Peter 2:9

9then(S) the Lord knows how to rescue the godly from trials,[d] and to keep the unrighteous under punishment until the day of judgment,

1 John 2:1,2

1(A) So put away all malice and all deceit and hypocrisy and envy and all slander.

2(B) Like newborn infants, long for the pure spiritual(C) milk, that by it you may grow up into salvation—

God Protects You When

You Question God's Power
To Meet All Situations


Job 5:17-27

17"Behold,(P) blessed is the one whom God reproves;
therefore(Q) despise not the discipline of the(R) Almighty.

18For he wounds, but he(S) binds up;
he(T) shatters, but his hands heal.

19He will(U) deliver you from six troubles;
in seven no(V) evil[d] shall touch you.

20(W) In famine he will redeem you from death,
and in war from the power of the sword.

21You shall be(X) hidden from the lash of the tongue,
and shall not fear destruction when it comes.

22At destruction and famine you shall laugh,
and shall not fear(Y) the beasts of the earth.

23For you shall be in league with the stones of the field,
and the beasts of the field shall be at peace with you.

24You shall know that your(Z) tent is at peace,
and you shall inspect your fold and miss nothing.

25You shall know also that your(AA) offspring shall be many,
and your descendants as(AB) the grass of the earth.

26You shall come to your grave in(AC) ripe old age,
like a sheaf gathered up in its season.

27Behold, this we have(AD) searched out; it is true.
Hear, and know it for your good."[e]

Matthew 8:23-27
23(AC) And when he got into the boat, his disciples followed him.

24And behold, there arose a great storm on the sea, so that the boat was being swamped by the waves; but(AD) he was asleep.

25And they went and woke him, saying,(AE) "Save us, Lord; we are perishing."

26And he said to them, <WOJ>"Why are you(AF) afraid,(AG) O you of little faith?"</WOJ> Then he rose and(AH) rebuked the winds and the sea, and(AI) there was a great calm.

27And the men(AJ) marveled, saying, "What sort of man is this, that even(AK) winds and sea obey him?"

Luke 17:5,6

5(I) The apostles said to the Lord,(J) "Increase our faith!"

6And the Lord said, <WOJ>(K) "If you had faith like(L) a grain of mustard seed, you could say to this(M) mulberry tree, 'Be uprooted and planted in the sea,' and it would obey you.

Ephesians 1:15-23

15For this reason,(AN) because I have heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love[f] toward all the saints,

16I(AO) do not cease to give thanks for you,(AP) remembering you in my prayers,

17that(AQ) the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory,(AR) may give you a spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of him,

18(AS) having the eyes of your hearts enlightened, that you may know what is(AT) the hope to which he has called you, what are(AU) the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints,

19and what is the immeasurable greatness of his power toward us who believe,(AV) according to the working of(AW) his great might

20that he worked in Christ(AX) when he raised him from the dead and(AY) seated him at his right hand(AZ) in the heavenly places,

21(BA) far above(BB) all rule and authority and power and dominion, and above(BC) every name that is named, not only in(BD) this age but also in the one to come.

22And(BE) he put all things under his feet and gave him as(BF) head over all things to the church,

23(BG) which is his body,(BH) the fullness of him(BI) who fills(BJ) all in all.

Colossians 1:9-13

9And so,(R) from the day we heard,(S) we have not ceased to pray for you, asking that(T) you may be filled with the knowledge of his will in all(U) spiritual wisdom and understanding,

10so as(V) to walk in a manner worthy of the Lord,(W) fully pleasing to him,(X) bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God.

11(Y) May you be strengthened with all power, according to his glorious might, for(Z) all endurance and patience(AA) with joy,

12(AB) giving thanks[d] to the Father, who has qualified you[e] to share in(AC) the inheritance of the saints in light.

13He(AD) has delivered us from(AE) the domain of darkness and transferred us to(AF) the kingdom of(AG) his beloved Son,

1 Thessalonians 1:5

5because(L) our gospel came to you not only in word, but also in power and(M) in the Holy Spirit and with full(N) conviction. You know(O) what kind of men we proved to be among you for your sake.

1 Thessalonians 5:23,24

23Now may(AF) the God of peace himself(AG) sanctify you completely, and may your(AH) whole(AI) spirit and soul and body be kept blameless at(AJ) the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.

24(AK) He who calls you is faithful;(AL) he will surely do it.

14 "Now therefore fear the LORD and serve him in sincerity and in faithfulness. Put away the gods that your fathers served beyond the River and in Egypt, and serve the LORD.

15 And if it is evil in your eyes to serve the LORD, choose this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your fathers served in the region beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites in whose land you dwell. But as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD."

Proverbs 6:5-11

5save yourself like a gazelle from the hand of the hunter,[b]
(E) like a bird from the hand of the fowler.
6(F) Go to(G) the ant, O(H) sluggard;
consider her ways, and(I) be wise.


7(J) Without having any chief,
(K) officer, or ruler,


8she prepares her bread(L) in summer
and(M) gathers her food in harvest.


9(N) How long will you lie there,(O) O sluggard?
When will you arise from your sleep?


10(P) A little sleep, a little slumber,
(Q) a little folding of the hands to rest,


11(R) and poverty will come upon you like a robber,
and want like an armed man.

Proverbs 6:20-23

20(AJ) My son, keep your father’s commandment,
and forsake not your mother’s teaching.

21(AK) Bind them on your heart always;
(AL) tie them around your neck.

22(AM) When you walk, they[d] will lead you;
(AN) when you lie down, they will watch over you;
and when you awake, they will talk with you.

23For the commandment is(AO) a lamp and the teaching a light,
and the(AP) reproofs of discipline are the way of life,


Proverbs 22:6

6(H) Train up a child in the way he should go;
even when he is old he will not depart from it.

Proverbs 28:7

7The one who keeps the law is a son with understanding,
but(K) a companion of gluttons shames his father.

Isaiah 55:11-13

11so shall my word be that goes out from my mouth;
it shall not return to me empty,
but(Q) it shall accomplish that which I purpose,
and shall succeed in the thing for which I sent it.
12(R) "For you shall go out in joy
and be led forth in peace;
(S) the mountains and the hills before you
shall break forth into singing,
and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands.


13(T) Instead of the thorn shall come up the cypress;
instead of the brier shall come up the myrtle;
and it shall make a name for the LORD,
an everlasting sign that shall not be cut off."

Matthew 7:15-17

15<WOJ>(T) "Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing but inwardly are(U) ravenous wolves.</WOJ>

16<WOJ>You will recognize them(V) by their fruits. Are grapes gathered from thornbushes, or figs from thistles?</WOJ>

17<WOJ>So,(W) every healthy tree bears good fruit, but the diseased tree bears bad fruit.

Mark 8:34-36

34And calling the crowd to him with his disciples, he said to them, <WOJ>"If anyone would come after me, let him(AS) deny himself and(AT) take up his cross and follow me.</WOJ>

1 Corinthians 10:13

13No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man.(V) God is faithful, and(W) he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it.

2 Corinthians 6:14-18

14(AG) Do not be unequally yoked with unbelievers. For(AH) what partnership has righteousness with lawlessness? Or(AI) what fellowship has light with darkness?

15(AJ) What accord has Christ with Belial?[b] Or what portion does a believer share with an unbeliever?

16What agreement has the temple of God with idols? For(AK) we are the temple of the living God; as God said,

(AL) "I will make my dwelling among them and(AM) walk among them,

9(for(V) the fruit of light is found in all that is good and right and true),

10and(W) try to discern what is pleasing to the Lord.

11(X) Take no part in the(Y) unfruitful(Z) works of darkness, but instead(AA) expose them.

12For(AB) it is shameful even to speak of the things that they do in secret.

and quarreling is like the bars of a castle.

Matthew 12:25

25(AD) Knowing their thoughts,(AE) he said to them, <WOJ>"Every kingdom divided against itself is laid waste, and no city or house divided against itself will stand.</WOJ>

1 Corinthians 3:1-3

1But I, brothers,[a] could not address you as(A) spiritual people, but as(B) people of the flesh, as(C) infants in Christ.

2(D) I fed you with milk, not solid food, for(E) you were not ready for it. And even now you are not yet ready,

3for you are still of the flesh. For while there is(F) jealousy and strife among you, are you not of the flesh and behaving only in a human way?

1 Corinthians 12:13-26

13For(AA) in one Spirit we were all baptized into one body—(AB) Jews or Greeks, slaves[d] or free—and(AC) all were made to drink of one Spirit.

14For the body does not consist of one member but of many.

15If the foot should say, "Because I am not a hand, I do not belong to the body," that would not make it any less a part of the body.

16And if the ear should say, "Because I am not an eye, I do not belong to the body," that would not make it any less a part of the body.

17If the whole body were an eye, where would be the sense of hearing? If the whole body were an ear, where would be the sense of smell?

18But as it is,(AD) God arranged the members in the body, each one of them,(AE) as he chose.

19If all were a single member, where would the body be?

20As it is, there are many parts,[e] yet one body.

21The eye cannot say to the hand, "I have no need of you," nor again the head to the feet, "I have no need of you."

22On the contrary, the parts of the body that seem to be weaker are indispensable,

23and on those parts of the body that we think less honorable we bestow the greater honor, and our unpresentable parts are treated with greater modesty,

24which our more presentable parts do not require. But God has so composed the body, giving greater honor to the part that lacked it,

25that there may be no division in the body, but that the members may have the same care for one another.

26If one member suffers, all suffer together; if one member is honored,(AF) all rejoice together.

Hebrews 12:14,15

14(W) Strive for peace with everyone, and for the(X) holiness(Y) without which no one will see the Lord.

15See to it that no one(Z) fails to obtain the grace of God; that no(AA) "root of bitterness" springs up and causes trouble, and by it many become defiled;

God Gives You Strength When

Anger Threatens Your
Home's Peace


Psalm 102:1-4

1(C) Hear my prayer, O LORD;let my cry(D) come to you!

2(E) Do not hide your face from me
in(F) the day of my distress!
(G) Incline your ear to me;
(H) answer me speedily(I) in the day when I call!
3For my days(J) pass away like smoke,
and my(K) bones burn like a furnace.


4My heart is(L) struck down like grass and(M) has withered;
I(N) forget to eat my bread.

Psalm 102:12

12But you, O LORD, are(Y) enthroned forever;
you(Z) are remembered throughout all generations.

Psalm 120:7;121:1-3

7(H) I am for peace,
but when I speak, they are for war!

1I(B) lift up my eyes to(C) the hills.
From where does my help come?


2(D) My help comes from the LORD,
who(E) made heaven and earth.

3He will not(F) let your foot be moved;
he who(G) keeps you will not slumber.

Psalm 133:1,2

1Behold, how good and pleasant it is
when(B) brothers dwell in unity![a]
2It is like the precious(C) oil on(D) the head,
running down on the beard,
on the beard of Aaron,
running down on(E) the collar of his robes!


Proverbs 14:29

29Whoever is(AO) slow to anger has great understanding,
but he who has a hasty temper exalts folly.

Proverbs 15:17,18

17(Z) Better is a dinner of herbs where love is
than(AA) a fattened ox and hatred with it.


18(AB) A hot-tempered man(AC) stirs up strife,
but he who is(AD) slow to anger quiets contention.

Proverbs 16:24,32

24(AK) Gracious words are like(AL) a honeycomb,
sweetness to the soul and(AM) health to the body.

32(AZ) Whoever is slow to anger is better than the mighty,
and he who rules his spirit than he who takes a city.

Proverbs 17:14

14The beginning of strife is like letting out water,
so(U) quit before the quarrel breaks out.

Proverbs 21:23

23(AE) Whoever keeps his mouth and his tongue
(AF) keeps himself out of(AG) trouble.

1 Corinthians 1:10

10 I appeal to you, brothers,[a] by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree, and that there be no(Q) divisions among you, but that you be united(R) in the same mind and the same judgment.

1 Corinthians 14:33

33For God is not a God of(AG) confusion but of peace.

Ephesians 4:26

26(BK) Be angry and do not sin; do not let the sun go down on your anger,

Colossians 4:6

6Let your speech always(H) be gracious,(I) seasoned with salt,(J) so that you may know how you ought to answer each person.

James 1:19,20

19(AG) Know this, my beloved brothers: let every person(AH) be quick to hear,(AI) slow to speak,(AJ) slow to anger;

20for the anger of man does not produce the righteousness of God.

Taken from the New King James Version
God's Promises for Fathers
God Gives You Strength When

A Member Of Your Family Dies

Psalm 145:13,14

13 Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom,
And Your dominion endures throughout all generations.[c]

14 The LORD upholds all who fall,
And raises up all who are bowed down.

Psalm 147:3-5

3 He heals the brokenhearted
And binds up their wounds.

4 He counts the number of the stars;
He calls them all by name.

5 Great is our Lord, and mighty in power;
His understanding is infinite.

Ecclesiastes 3:1-8

1 To everything there is a season,

A time for every purpose under heaven:

2 A time to be born,
And a time to die;
A time to plant,
And a time to pluck what is planted;

3 A time to kill,
And a time to heal;
A time to break down,
And a time to build up;

4 A time to weep,
And a time to laugh;
A time to mourn,
And a time to dance;

5 A time to cast away stones,
And a time to gather stones;
A time to embrace,
And a time to refrain from embracing;

6 A time to gain,
And a time to lose;
A time to keep,
And a time to throw away;

7 A time to tear,
And a time to sew;
A time to keep silence,
And a time to speak;

8 A time to love,
And a time to hate;
A time of war,
And a time of peace.

1 Corinthians 15:16-26

16 For if the dead do not rise, then Christ is not risen.

17 And if Christ is not risen, your faith is futile; you are still in your sins!

18 Then also those who have fallen asleep in Christ have perished.

19 If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men the most pitiable.
The Last Enemy Destroyed

20 But now Christ is risen from the dead, and has become the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep.

21 For since by man came death, by Man also came the resurrection of the dead.

22 For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ all shall be made alive.

23 But each one in his own order: Christ the firstfruits, afterward those who are Christ’s at His coming.

24 Then comes the end, when He delivers the kingdom to God the Father, when He puts an end to all rule and all authority and power.

25 For He must reign till He has put all enemies under His feet.

26 The last enemy that will be destroyed is death.

1 Thessalonians 4:13-16

13 But I do not want you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning those who have fallen asleep, lest you sorrow as others who have no hope.

14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so God will bring with Him those who sleep in Jesus.[b]

15 For this we say to you by the word of the Lord, that we who are alive and remain until the coming of the Lord will by no means precede those who are asleep.

16 For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first.

God's Promises for Fathers
God Gives You Strength When

Your Chidren Disobey You


1 Samuel 15:22,23

22And Samuel said,

(U) "Has the LORD as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices,
as in obeying the voice of the LORD?
Behold,(V) to obey is better than sacrifice,
and to listen than the fat of rams.

23For rebellion is as the sin of divination,
and presumption is as iniquity and(W) idolatry.
Because(X) you have rejected the word of the LORD,
(Y) he has also rejected you from being king."

Pslam 86:15,16

15But you, O Lord, are a God(Y) merciful and gracious,
slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness.

16(Z) Turn to me and be gracious to me;
give your strength to(AA) your servant,
and save the son of your maidservant.
Psalm 89:30-34

30(BJ) If his children forsake my law
and do not walk according to my rules,[e]


31if they violate my statutes
and do not keep my commandments,


32then I will punish their transgression with(BK) the rod
and their iniquity with stripes,


33but I will not remove from him my steadfast love
or be false to my faithfulness.


34I will not violate my(BL) covenant
or alter the word that went forth from my lips.

Psalm 103:13-17

13As(U) a father shows compassion to his children,
so the LORD shows compassion(V) to those who fear him.


14For he knows our frame;[a]
he(W) remembers that we are dust.

15As for man, his days are like(X) grass;
he flourishes like(Y) a flower of the field;


16for(Z) the wind passes over it, and(AA) it is gone,
and(AB) its place knows it no more.


17But(AC) the steadfast love of the LORD is from everlasting to everlasting on(AD) those who fear him,
and his righteousness to(AE) children’s children,

Psalm 106:6-8

6(H) Both we and(I) our fathers have sinned;
we have committed iniquity; we have done wickedness.


7Our fathers, when they were in Egypt,
did not consider your wondrous works;
they(J) did not remember the abundance of your steadfast love,
but(K) rebelled by the sea, at the Red Sea.


Yet he saved them(L) for his name’s sake,
(M) that he might make known his mighty power.

Psalm 106:43-45

43(BM) Many times he delivered them,
but they were rebellious in their(BN) purposes
and were(BO) brought low through their iniquity.

44Nevertheless, he looked upon their distress,
when he(BP) heard their cry.


45For their sake he(BQ) remembered his covenant,
and(BR) relented according to(BS) the abundance of his steadfast love.

Proverbs 10:1

1(A) The proverbs of Solomon.

(B) A wise son makes a glad father,
(C) but a foolish son is a sorrow to his mother.

Proverbs 13:1

1A wise son hears his father’s instruction,
but(A) a scoffer does not listen to rebuke.

Proverbs 20:11

11Even a child(R) makes himself known by his acts,
by whether his conduct is pure and upright.[c]

Proverbs 22:15

15Folly is bound up in the heart of a child,
but(Y) the rod of discipline drives it far from him.

Isaiah 1:19,20

19(AQ) If you are willing and obedient,
you shall eat the good of the land;


20but if you refuse and rebel,
you shall be eaten by the sword;
(AR) for the mouth of the LORD has spoken."

Ephesians 6:1,4

1(A) Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right.

2(B) "Honor your father and mother" (this is the first commandment with a promise), 3"that it may go well with you and that you may live long in the land."

4Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger,(C) but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord.

Hebrews 5:8

8Although(P) he was a son,(Q) he learned obedience through what he suffered.

Hebrews 13:17

17Obey(AD) your leaders and submit to them,(AE) for they are keeping watch over your souls, as those who will have to(AF) give an account.(AG) Let them do this with joy and not with groaning, for that would be of no advantage to you.

1 Peter 5:5,6

5Likewise, you who are younger, be subject to the elders.(K) Clothe yourselves, all of you, with humility toward one another, for(L) "God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble."

6(M) Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God so that at the proper time he may exalt you,

Part 2
2 Corinthians 12:8-10

8(M) Three times I pleaded with the Lord about this, that it should leave me.

9But he said to me, <WOJ>(N) "My grace is sufficient for you, for(O) my power is made perfect in weakness."</WOJ> Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that(P) the power of Christ may rest upon me.

10(Q) For the sake of Christ, then,(R) I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities. For(S) when I am weak, then I am strong.

Philippians 2:5-9

5(J) Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus,[a]

6(K) who, though he was in(L) the form of God, did not count equality with God(M) a thing to be grasped,

7but(N) made himself nothing, taking the form of a(O) servant,[b](P) being born in the likeness of men.

8And being found in human form, he humbled himself by(Q) becoming obedient to the point of death,(R) even death on a cross.

9(S) Therefore(T) God has(U) highly exalted him and bestowed on him(V) the name that is above every name,

Job 5:6-9

6For affliction does not come from the dust,
nor does trouble sprout from the ground,

7but man is(E) born to trouble
as the sparks fly upward.
8"As for me, I would seek God,
and to God would I commit my cause,


9who(F) does great things and(G) unsearchable,
(H) marvelous things without number:

Psalm 5:1-8,11,12

1Give ear to my words, O LORD;
consider my(A) groaning.


2Give attention to the sound of my cry,
my(B) King and my God,
for(C) to you do I pray.


3O LORD, in(D) the morning you hear my voice;
in the morning I prepare a sacrifice for you[a] and(E) watch.

4For you are not a God who delights in wickedness;
evil may not dwell with you.


5The(F) boastful shall not(G) stand before your eyes;
you(H) hate all evildoers.


6You destroy those who speak(I) lies;
the LORD abhors(J) the bloodthirsty and deceitful man.

7But I, through the abundance of your steadfast love,
will enter your house.
I will(K) bow down(L) toward your(M) holy temple
in the fear of you.


8(N) Lead me, O LORD, in your righteousness
because of my enemies;
(O) make your way straight before me.

11But let all who(V) take refuge in you(W) rejoice;
let them ever sing for joy,
and spread your protection over them,
that those who love your name may(X) exult in you.


12For you(Y) bless the righteous, O LORD;
you(Z) cover him with favor as with(AA) a shield.

3though(H) its waters roar and foam,
though the mountains tremble at its swelling.
Selah

Psalm 86:1-6

1(B) Incline your ear, O LORD, and answer me,
for I am(C) poor and needy.


2Preserve my life, for I am(D) godly;
save your servant, who(E) trusts in you—you are my God.


3(F) Be gracious to me, O Lord,
for to you do I cry all the day.


4Gladden the soul of your servant,
for(G) to you, O Lord, do I lift up my soul.


5For you, O Lord, are good and(H) forgiving,
(I) abounding in steadfast love to all who call upon you.


6(J) Give ear, O LORD, to my prayer;
listen to my plea for grace.

Psalm 91:1-10

1He who dwells in(A) the shelter of the Most High
will abide in(B) the shadow of the Almighty.


2I will say[a] to the LORD, "My(C) refuge and my(D) fortress,
my God, in whom I(E) trust."

3For he will deliver you from(F) the snare of the fowler
and from the deadly pestilence.


4He will(G) cover you with his pinions,
and under his(H) wings you will(I) find refuge;
his(J) faithfulness is(K) a shield and buckler.


5(L) You will not fear(M) the terror of the night,
nor the arrow that flies by day,


6nor the pestilence that stalks in darkness,
nor the destruction that wastes at noonday.

7A thousand may fall at your side,
ten thousand at your right hand,
but it will not come near you.


8You will only look with your eyes

10(Q) no evil shall be allowed to befall you,
(R) no plague come near your tent.

Psalm 108:12,13

12Oh grant us help against the foe,
for vain is the salvation of man!


13With God we shall do valiantly;
it is he who will tread down our foes.

Psalm118:28

28You are my God, and I will give thanks to you;
you are my God; I will(AI) extol you.

Psalm 119:114

114You are my(FO) hiding place and my(FP) shield;
I(FQ) hope in your word.

1 Corinthians 2:1-5

1And I, when I came to you, brothers,[a](A) did not come proclaiming to you(B) the testimony[b] of God with lofty speech or wisdom.

2For I decided to know nothing among you except(C) Jesus Christ and him crucified.

3And(D) I was with you(E) in weakness and in fear and much trembling,

4and my speech and my message were not in plausible words of wisdom, but in demonstration of(F) the Spirit and of power, 5that your faith might not rest in the wisdom of men but(G) in the power of God.

the torrents of destruction assailed me;[b]

6(L) the cords of Sheol entangled me;
the snares of death confronted me.
7(M) "In my distress I called upon the LORD;
to my God I called.
From his temple he heard my voice,
and my cry(N) came to his ears.

Psalm 103:17

17But(AC) the steadfast love of the LORD is from everlasting to everlasting on(AD) those who fear him,
and his righteousness to(AE) children’s children,

8(K) The grass withers, the flower fades,
but the word of our God will stand forever.

10fear not, for I am with you;
be not dismayed, for I am your God;
I will strengthen you, I will help you,

15(X) Behold, I make of you a threshing sledge,
new, sharp, and having teeth;

16(Z) you shall winnow them, and(AA) the wind shall carry them away,
and the tempest shall scatter them.
(AB) And you shall rejoice in the LORD;
in the Holy One of Israel you shall glory.

Isaih 49:13-16

13(AB) Sing for joy, O heavens, and exult, O earth;

14But Zion said,(AD) "The LORD has forsaken me;
my Lord has forgotten me."

15(AE) "Can a woman forget her nursing child,

your walls are continually before me.
