Taking the Lead

Are you a Christian man?

God created you to take the lead in your family.
That does not mean you get to steamroll everyone.

It does mean that you get to learn how to be more confident, compassionate, & tenderhearted toward your wife and/or kids.

  1. Be confident in who God created you to be on this earth. You have to talk with Him to know that.
  2. Be compassionate as you gently teach what you are actively [currently] learning from God Himself.
  3. A truly great, effective leader is tenderhearted in that you listen first. Otherwise, you are likely to solve the wrong problem, eh?

If you are married

Be a good husband to your wife. Honor her. Delight in her. She is different than you, to be sure. But you share equally in the grace of life because of Christ. Treat her well so that nothing will hinder your prayers. 1 Peter 3

If you have kids …

Fathers, don’t frustrate your children with no-win scenarios. Take them by the hand and lead them in the way of the Master. Ephesians 6:4
