Too many times we earthly fathers try to love out of a sense of emotion or duty, and though emotion and duty are good things, they will not be enough to sustain me as a father over time.

Sitting through church with such a little guy is tough - for us. We had to have the right snacks (shhh, inside voices), an appropriate number of stickers (don't draw on the pew Bible!), a drink (stop standing up, just sit down), and maybe some crayons (what part of 'inside voices' didn't you understand?).
This is one of those wonderful times when you teach as much as you can and then you start in on the work of explaining what faith is – now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see (Hebrews 11:1).
