Live the Faith! If I Succeed as a Scholar but Fail as a Father

August 11, 2020

“As a father has compassion on his children, so the LORD has compassion on those who fear him.”
– Psalms 103:13

Live the Faith! Tip of the Week:

No matter what your job is, if you have a family, your main vocation and  obligation is to them. As men we tend to focus on supporting the material needs of our families, but often our spiritual obligation to them can go overlooked.

Take some time in prayer this week to contemplate the reality that you are called to participate in the very fatherhood of God. Ask God to give you the grace to not only provide for your family’s material needs, but to guide and lead them spiritually as well.

Dr. John Bergsma is a is a professor of Theology at the Franciscan University of Steubenville. He will be featured in the all new year of TMIY, All Things New, coming this fall.
