In this inspirational presentation to fathers, Jeff Cavins asks fathers a critical question: “What would you die for?” This question, he notes, helps fathers cut through the many distractions and challenges of everyday life and clarifies what their priorities really are. Even so, it is more difficult to live for one’s wife and children than to die for them.
A father lives for his children by bringing his faith into the daily life of his family, and by more perfectly conforming his life to Jesus, the chief model of fatherhood. We have been created to love as God loves, and fathers are called to mirror the sacrificial love of Christ to their family. Here, Jeff gives us the practical reminder that we are eternal beings God has given us our children for a very short time, and a father’s greatest joy is to raise them in the faith and bring them to eternal life.
