III. FATHER’S SHOULD SHEPHERD IN A WAY THAT INSTRUCTS

Discipline (nurture) - training and education of children that relates to cultivating the mind, and morals.
Spurgeon
“You cannot control your children, you say. Then the Lord have mercy on you! It is your business to do it, and you must do it, or else you will soon find they will control you. No one knows what judgment will come from God upon those who allow sin in children to go unrebuked.”
-TOO MANY PARENTS TODAY THAT OBEY THEIR CHILDREN
-Or develop unhealthy friendship relationships with thier kids instead of the God ordained role that HE has designed...
-I dont mean that dicisions are made with the
instruction of the Lord (admonition) - Training by word
-correct -rebuke -and encourage
-No Outsourcing Allowed
Primarily, the responsibility of discipleship falls on you as the head of your home.
IF YOU ARE GOING TO DISCIPLE YOUR CHILDREN, YOU MUST BE A DISCIPLE.
-You must have a disciples list of priorities.
-You must live your life as one who has tasted and seen that the Lord is God.
ILLUST: 2007 The Washington Post did an experiment.
-The sent a 39 year old man with a viloin into the metro station during morning rush hour.
-Walked in…took his old looking and beat up violin from the case
-left case open and threw what little change he had in his pocket into the case as seed money.
-The Violinist played 6 brilliant classical pieces.
-Played for 43 minutes.
-Over 1000 people walked by.
-The overwhelming majorty of the passerbys ignored the musician as he played.
-Only 27 people stopped and gave money
-Total of $32 and some change.
What the passerbys did not notice...
-The violinist was world renouned violinist Joshua Bell
-A few days before Bell played in front of a packed room at Boston’s Symphony Hall
-Tickets were around $100 each.
-The violin his was playing…looked all beat up and old... was most of the most valuable instraments in the world. Valued at 3.5 MILLION $
-How could so many people walk by one of the most famous and talented musicians in the world playing one of the most valuable instruments in the world and never even slow down to turn and look?
-distracted by their busy lives, the failed to see the beauty that was before them.
-Failed to hear the masterful notes as they echoed through the metro.
DADS…DO YOU TREAT JESUS LIKE THIS?
-Too preoccupied, busy, and distracted to notice to hear the masterful symphony of the Gospel played by His nailed scared hands?
-Do you want to disciple your kids?
-Slow down…listen to the masterful music of the savior.
-Acknoledge his value.
-Speak of his worth.
-Stop often to hear His music and Worship
…reorder your priorities in such a way where you are QUICK
-TO Stop to hear his instructions
DO you want to disciple your kids? You have to be a disciple first....
