A father’s influence is contagious and sets the atmosphere in the home. Influencing the family to a life of excellence or a life of mediocrity rest on the shoulders of fathers.
The purpose of a father’s influence is to bring flavor and illumination to his family. Living an obvious and exceptional life of excellence is an essential characteristic of fathers displaying their power of influence in the home.
Understanding his sphere of influence is critical for family survival. The influence of a father is like a salt seasoning that adds richness to his family. Salt is a powerful seasoning that flavors most foods.
This influence rich in vision, compassion, kindness and forgiveness brings out the flavor in each family member to rise to a level of success effortlessly.
Light is another great example of a father’s influence that illuminates his family. Without the light turned on many families will stumble and walk in darkness (ignorance) for decades. The light is the greatest influence in this atmosphere and without it visibility is not possible. A father’s words and actions must be rich in leadership for illuminating his family.
Fathers are salt and light to their families. Therefore, they possess the highest form of influence in the home. A father refusing to season his family, is a a father who has lost his flavor. Hence, he is no longer of value to his family and will not hesitate to abuse, destroy, sabotage or leave his family. A little leaven, leaveneth the whole lump!
Every choice a father make will have repercussion in the life of each family member. A father’s influence is connected to his relationships. There is no such thing as “It won’t affect the children”, this statement is a lie. Every decision a father make has the potential to empower or destroy his family. Please review the divorce courts rulings for more statistics.
