As your kids move into the later teen years and adulthood, are you watching how they treat their family members? One way to envisage how they might treat their future spouse is by looked at how they treat family members, especially family members of the opposite sex, today.

So looking at a daughter, you might want to consider how they treat you or their brothers.

And looking at a son, you might want to consider how they treat their Mom and their sisters.

And a key question is – are they honoring their family members?

Because if they aren’t, if they are acting in ways that disrespects their siblings and parents, it might point to future behavior with their spouses.

And you might want to point that out. “I fear that you might treat your husband like that. And if you do, it won’t be good.”

And mostly likely she’ll say, “my husband is not going to be like my brother”

Or he might say, “my wife is not going to be like Mom”

And then you should respond, “I don’t think you can be sure about that.”

This might be a reason that God commands us to honor our parents.

Dads, I encourage you to regularly hug your kids, but I also encourage you to let them excuse themselves from getting a hug if they don’t want to.

Dads, at your next meal, ask one of your kids to pray.

Dads, tell your daughter to teach her son that he should teach his daughter to tell her son that Jesus is the only way to God.

Dads, teach your driving kids that sometimes all it takes to fix the My-Key-Won’t-Turn-In-The-Ignition problem is to turn the steering wheel a little bit.

Dads, teach your kids: You can save a little bit of money and a little bit of time if you use a little bit less shampoo or little bit less toothpaste.

Dads, one factor you should use in choosing a home is: Is it close to my church?

Dads, you should not only attend church as a family, you should be involved there.

Here are some reasons.

Dads, consider – what can I do to increase the joy level in our home?
(Hint: It probably has something to do with God.)
