"Not many Fathers".
For though ye have ten thousand instructers in Christ, yet have ye not many fathers: for in Christ Jesus I have begotten you through the gospel.
1 Cor. 4:15
" not many Fathers"... Apostle Paul's concern in this situation is that we have a lot of "instructors", people telling us what to do but they may not be sincerely passionate about our welfare and since are not sincere they could not possibly know what's best for us in the future. I agree, there is always plenty of people that can tell you exactly how to handle whatever you are dealing with, even though they have never been where you are. Now Fathers on the other hand, love their children, they care, they feel the pain and sorrow of their sons and daughters. But when a nation, church, business, etc.... Has leadership that care more about themselves than their followers,......HOUSTON, WE HAVE A PROBLEM!!!!
When Paul visited the churches he comforted them as a Father comforts His children. (1 Thess. 2:11). We need leadership that will nurture us, lead us, stand for us as a Father would instead of burdening us down with more HOPELESSNESS, FEAR AND NEGATIVITY, trust me, we have plenty of that junk!! Our pulpits are filled with a Religious Version of the latest braking negative news story. Our only Hope is the Word of God,(Ps 107:20), it needs to be presented from the White House to the Church House!!!! Forgive me for my worldly analogy, but we need to get back to the BASICS of LIFE. (Waylon &Willie) May the Spirit of The Heavenly Father be upon all of us so we can begin to nurture one another back to health, peace and blessing. Let's change the direction of our Familys, Churches and Nation, one house at a time, by starting at our own doorstep. If we start today, I wonder how far along we will be in one year, I will if you will.....
