The role of the father is fundamental to the family unit.
When Payton Manning was injured and missed the 2011 season, the Colts went 2-14 (one of the worst seasons they ever had). During their prior season with a healthy Manning they had a record of 10-6 and made the playoffs.
The father’s role is similar to that of the QB. When life’s struggles and the devil come at families like a blitz, fathers are called to protect them using the Word of God as a guide.
We see fatherly abandonment in many homes today. The heart of God must be broken by this state because He did not design fathers to leave their families behind. The depression rate among women and children after a father has left the home is alarming. The prison occupancy rates and teen pregnancy are at an all time high. The emotional and spiritual damage on our families and our society is evident.
InspiredHope aims to Scriptural lead men to lovingly lead and cherish their wives and lay down their lives like Christ laid His life down for the Church; to help men build relationships with their wives and children. We believe Godly marriages are incredible gifts to families.
Be on the lookout for InspiredMen retreats and conferences where we’ll examine these truths and grow together. Click to visit our Events Page.
