Christian dads generally have “full plates” providing for their families, in addition to responding to family, home, and church responsibilities. My guess is most are not looking for more things to do. Yet, the Lord’s parting command was very clear that we are to be making disciples (Matthew 28:19). In addition to purposeful discipling of our children (Deuteronomy 6:4-9), how can busy dads do that?
Instead of adding one more thing “to” your life, make this the very essence “of” your life.Have the mindset of being an ambassador for Christ all day, everyday, everywhere you go and with everyone you meet. “Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us” (2 Corinthians 5:20). Deep genuine love for our Lord and our neighbor is our motive. Daily prayer prepares our hearts and seeks God’s grace. Be salty due to your time in the Word and your walk with the Lord Jesus so when you engage someone they will thirst for more (Matthew 5:13). “Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven” (Matthew 5:16). May we make the most of every opportunity.
