What's My Purpose?

Apr 23, 2012 / Fatherhood     

What should be a dad’s mind-set in raising his kids? I’m Mark Merrill with today’s Family Minute. The mind-set of many fathers is thinking that their job as a dad is to be just a provider and protector. But that’s not enough. An All Pro Dad needs to have a new mind-set and know his purpose. Let me illustrate. Navy SEALS are physically and mentally tough. Their job and their mission are all-important.  That’s their mind-set. A dad’s got to be mentally tough too. He needs to have the mind-set that being a dad is his most important job and that his mission is all-important. What’s that mission? To love and lead his children.  Remember, your Family First.
