The second spiritual component that the father needs to minister effectively to his children is the role of the priest. The priest would be one who (Represents the Family to God). It’s as if the father is saying to God “God meet my family”. To be the priest of our homes is to be one who prays and intercedes for the family. To be the priest of our home is to provide a way to salvation for your family. It is to offer the sacrifice of thanksgiving for your children. For Psalm 127:3 says “Lo, children are a heritage of the Lord: and the fruit of the womb is his reward.” Thus, thanking God for our children is just as important as praying for them. Therefore fathers, pray for your children, thank God for your children, get involved in the things that interest them, and talk to them frequently about their relationship with God, for it is your role as the priest of the home.
God Bless You
