According to the Holy Bible; Men have Accountability to their children. Children are a blessing from the Lord (cf. Psa. 127:3-5). As with all blessings, there is accountability. Fathers must realize that the Spirit gave this charge regarding our children to us. He did not give it to the mother, though their role is absolutely necessary for its being carried out. He did not give it to the daycare. He did not give it to the babysitter. He did not give it to the nanny. He did not give it to the grandparents. Nor did He give it to the church, the school or the youth program. He gave it to fathers. Therefore, fathers will bear the accountability-the consequence for failing to carry it out or the reward for so doing. Let us never forget, “It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God” (Heb. 10:31).
Men have to provide Possibility for their sons to be brought up godly. Not only does this verse speak of responsibility and accountability, it speaks of possibility. It speaks of the possibility of bringing up godly children despite the immorality and wickedness of the day. It speaks of creating a strong bond between a father and his children all the days of their life, in a day when the elderly are left to die in loneliness and despair. It speaks of the possibility of happy, well-adjusted children who love God and their families. It speaks of the possibility of spiritual men leading spiritual homes in a spiritual way that brings up spiritual children. But most of all, it speaks of the possibility of heaven, for fathers and for their children. This is ultimately what it is all about (cf. Eccl. 12:13).
