Duty of Fathers

Fathers,

• If you fail to teach your son to fear God, the devil will teach him to hate God.

• If you fail to teach your son to guard his mind, the devil will gladly teach him to have an open mind.

• If you fail to teach your son to obey his parents, the devil will teach him to rebel and break his parent’s heart.

• If you fail to teach your son to select his companions, the devil will gladly choose them for him.

• If you fail to teach your son to control his body, the devil will teach him to give it over completely to lust.

• If you fail to teach your son to enjoy the marriage partner that God has given him, the devil will teach him to destroy the marriage.

• If you fail to teach your son to watch his words, the devil will fill his mouth with filth.

• If you fail to teach your son to pursue his work, the devil will make his laziness a tool of hell.

• If you fail to teach your son to manage his money, the devil will teach him to waste it on riotous living.

• And if you fail to teach your son to love his neighbor, the devil will gladly teach him to love only himself.
