What Bad Fathers Do

Ephesians 6:4 & Colossians 3:21 — In these two verses the Apostle Paul addresses fathers directly and he tells them not to “provoke” their children and not to “discourage” them. What was Paul talking about? In what ways can a father do this to his kids? 

In this sermon we consider eight ways that fathers provoke their children. Taken together they represent a failure of love and sadly, we see it all around us. This is an important message for fathers and for those seeking a Biblical perspective on fatherhood.
