You don't need a bunch of rules to follow, you need Jesus to change your heart. We will have three titles that extend beyond the grave: disciple, husband, and father. What do you spend your time on that does not make sense for the kingdom of God? Take initiative and stumble your way through spiritual leadership. The good news of the gospel is that you don't have to be the perfect daddy because you can point your kids back to the perfect daddy. How can a wife help her husband lead well: Create an atmosphere of humble confession Pray for him often Affirm him in his heart question that he is valuable and has what it takes. I love you simply because you are my child just as God does not love me based on what I accomplish but simply his heart toward me.
