10 Bible Verses of Encouragement for Fathers


We all need encouragement and the best place to go is to the Bible.

In this blog Post I have tried to gather some Bible passages or Bible verses which will encourage Fathers.







I do believe that we should not just grab a verse and read it on its own but we should always lift our bibles and read a passage of scripture to make sure that we know the real meaning and context of each of the verses we are putting our trust in. 

I pray that you will do the same and only use this list to guide you as to where you may find help.



So here are 10 Bible verses or short passages for us to turn to
 in times when we need encouragement for
 Fathers. 





1.   Proverbs 3 v 11-12



Discipline your children because of Love



     
and be blessed by the rewards.


 

2.   Ephesians 6 v 4


Train them to do what is right & do it in the right way

And you, fathers, do not provoke your children to wrath, but bring them up in the training and admonition of the Lord.



by obeying God's Word.




3.   Colossians 3 v 21



Do not discourage your children; train them whilst encouraging them.

 




Teach them to be obedient to God and show it in your life as the good example.





4.   Proverbs 3 v 1 


Teach them to be obedient to God 



 


and show willing obedience to God in your life as their good example.






5.   Proverbs 3 v 5-6

Honour the Lord with your possessions,
And with the first fruits of all your increase;




Then they will learn to do likewise.




8.   Deuteronomy 11 v 18 - 21


Install God's Word in your heart and mind and teach your children to do the same.


18 Therefore you shall lay up these words of mine in your heart and in your soul, and bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. 
19 You shall teach them to your children, speaking of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up. 
20 And you shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates, 
21 that your days and the days of your children may be multiplied in the land of which the Lord swore to your fathers to give them, like the days of the heavens above the earth.


Even teach them to memorize God's Word.


You will find some encouragement for memorizing Scripture in our

9.   Genesis 22 v 8



Have faith in God that leads your children to have faith in Him also.


And Abraham said, 
“My son, God will provide for Himself the lamb for a burnt offering.”



Just as Abraham set Isaac a great example of trusting in God.
