Daddy, Love Your Daughters!

It doesn't matter what the studies show or the psychologists say, daughters need a dad.

As I was walking around the park, a young girl around 13 passed by me with a young boy.  She had tight, short shorts on, a tight low top, and lots of makeup and perfume.  Girls want so badly to attract boys. 

My mom, Alyssa, Cassi, and I went and saw the movie Courageous yesterday.  It was a great movie.  I highly recommend it.  It presents the Gospel clearly and encourages fathers to live up to the high calling that God has called them to.

If daughters are loved and protected by their fathers, they most likely won't go looking for male attention the wrong way. They will respect their bodies and will pursue purity.

Alyssa and Cassi have a dad who loves and protects them.  He works hard, is honest, and helps others.  Neither of them were {are} going to jump into bed with any guy until they had {have} a ring on their finger {Praise God!}. They were loved and trained to do it God's way.

Too many girls out there are willing to do anything to get the boys' attention...It is heartbreaking.  God has such a better plan for them.  Dads need to love on their daughters and teach them to walk in the ways of God.

Now to you mothers, you probably know what I am going to say...Keep that man home.  Accept him the way that he is, admire his masculinity, allow him to lead, and make him number one.  Women have lots of power in keeping their men home. 

Do it for your daughters.  Do it for your sons.  Do it for yourself.  But mainly, do it in obedience to God.  He is the one you want to please.  He is our rewarder.

Children's children are the crown of old men; and the glory of children are their fathers. 
Proverbs 17:6
