Within this verse lies the goal of every Christian father and mother, to train their children in such a way that they will live according to those standards set for them all of their days. Of course, the way that Christian parents train their children is according to the Bible. As soon as we have those precious little ones the training begins. We raise them from birth all the way up until the time that they are ready to start a family of their own. If we have done our job well, they obey the Gospel of Christ and never depart from it. That is our goal as parents and it is a lofty one. It is a goal that literally requires our best.
God has appointed the man to be the head of the family unit. In order for this role to be filled, good men are needed. In particular, strong fathers are needed to raise strong daughters. The importance of this relationship may often go unnoticed today, but the simple fact of the matter is that daughters need the strength, courage, intelligence, fearlessness, empathy, assertiveness, and self-confidence of their fathers. If we as fathers want to make sure that our little girls grow up to be godly women, we must realize that it starts with us.
