A Good Father Listens To His Children

Ephesians 6:4 – Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger, but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord.

A good father is not autocratic in his leadership. He does not always apply a military approach in his
method of leadership and guidance toward his children. However, a father will take the time to
listen and not provoke his children. Children yearn to be understood and to be heard by their fathers. Therefore as a father, you must learn to bridge any distance and generation gap between you and your children. One of those ways of bridging that distance or generation gap is by being a good listener. It is only when you have understood and listened to your children in their situation, that can you then give them appropriate discipline and instruction in the Lord.
