Sermon Outline

Family Matters, Part X - Instructions to the Fathers

In Ephesians 6:4, Paul gives two crucial commands to fathers. As fathers, you are (not) to:

1. Provoke your children
2. Properly rear them


"We live in days when there is a mighty zeal for education in every quarter. We are told of new systems, and new books for the young, of every sort and description. And still, for all this, the vast majority of children are manifestly not trained in the way they should go, for when they grow up to man's estate, they do not walk with God"~JC Ryle

"If we never have headaches through rebuking our children, we shall have plenty of heartaches when they grow up." ~ Charles Spurgeon
