Our capacity or lack of capicity to wonder has very serious spiritual implications. As dads, we need both to model a spirit of wonder as well as nurture it in our families. In the process, you’ll be preparing your family for the day of all days, that day when Jesus comes again to be marveled at among all who have believed. (2 Thessalonians 1:10).
For centuries, God’s people longed for the coming of Messiah. As the Christmas promises multiplied, so did the anticipation. This year, turn the whole month into a season of preparation to make the dawning of Christmas morning about more than presents in your home.
As a Christian dad, how you think and talk about faith carries heightened importance because your conception of faith will filter down to your children. The Bible constantly encourages us to have faith in God because he is trustworthy. God wants us to express this kind of honoring faith to him.
