Dads: Say ‘I’m Sorry’
By David Chadwick
There is only one perfect Father, and he resides in heaven. All earthly dads fall far short of God’s glory (Romans 3:23).
All of us earthly fathers fail our kids. Sometimes we are too distant. Other times, too overbearing. We can be too harsh, or too lenient.
Even the most well-intentioned father fails his kids.
How should we fathers respond to our children when we know that we’ve failed them? Try this. Say “I’m sorry.”
Own up to your mistakes. Admit your failures. Live out Ephesians 4:32: As the Father in heaven has forgiven you, forgive one another – especially your kids. It will help them understand God’s grace when they fail him.
And it sets the stage for them to model grace to their kids when they make mistakes in parenting.
That reality will be invaluable for them, your grandkids, and for generations to come.
