Job - An Example to His Children
God’s Word for Every Day
Children, do what your parents tell you. This is only right. Ephesians 6:1
Mr. Jim and Mrs. Hardman’s prayer is for you to be totally devoted to God.
He (Job) was honest inside and out, a man of his word, who was totally devoted to God and hated evil with a passion (all his heart). Job 1:1

God said to Satan, “Have you noticed my friend Job? There’s no one quite like him—honest and true to his word, totally devoted to God and hating evil.”
Satan said, “But what do you think would happen if you reached down and took away everything that is his? He’d curse you right to your face, that’s what.”
God replied, “We’ll see.”
My Dad is so strong, he can lift anything, I’m told,
A big bag of groceries, maybe a telephone pole.
He uses his arms to hug me so tight
When he wakes me up in the morning
and puts me to bed at night.
He lifts me up when I am sad.
Yes, he is the very best dad.
He plays games with me and has races we run
And reads me stories, he’s so much fun.
He teaches me things that I should know;
How to treat others and let God’s love show,
Biking and hiking, fishing and more,
My dad is so wise, that’s what I adore.
When I’m stuck on my homework, he knows just what to do.
If you need anything, he will do it for you.
He’s loving and caring, and helpful to me.
I believe that my dad is as smart as can be!
He follows God’s example and raises me right.
I am thankful that my dad prays for me each night.
That I might follow Jesus and learn how to pray,
And live for him always each and every day.

Father, thank you for your faithfulness and love. Thank you for fathers and the Word and Holy Spirit that guides them. I pray for fathers as they instruct their children in the way they should go, your way. I pray fathers are kept from temptation and the evil one. Guide our children in their desires that they will seek the full knowledge of your will. Obeying you and growing in wisdom, stature, and in favor with God and man. May your blessings follow them as they follow you. In Jesus Name, Amen.
