WHAT WOULD HAPPEN IF...
...if the truant fathers of America began spending time with their children?
It wouldn't eliminate world hunger, but it might save some families from sinking below the poverty line. It wouldn't bring peace to the Middle East, but it just might keep a few kids from trying to find a sense of belonging with their local street-corner gang. It might not defuse the population bomb, but it just might prevent a few teenage pregnancies.
If these fathers were to spend more time with their children, it just might have an effect on the future of marriage and divorce. Not only do boys lack a sense of how a man should behave; many girls don't know either, having little exposure themselves to healthy male-female relationships. If that would happen, the next generation of absentee fathers might never come to pass (Christophre N. Bacorn, Dear Dads. Save Your Sons, p. 3).
"For I know him, that he will command his children and his household after him, and they shall keep the way of the LORD, to do justice and judgment..." (Gen. 18:19a).
