Provoke not to wrath

I always believe that parents can make or break their children. The father's role in raising a child plays a big part on the child's future preferences and decisions, specially in their spiritual choices. Fathers can be an encouragement to their children to have an intimate relation with our Saviour or they can also be the cause of the children's choice not to serve God.

I witness many cases wherein the fathers are faithful in the church. And what I mean by faithful is not only faithful attending church worship services, but actively participating in almost all the ministries in the church. But sad, because they and sometimes they wives, are the only active in the family. Their children chose to have a different life.

Of course, this is not the father or parents' fault alone. But somehow, the parents of this children failed in some area, that is why they choice a different path.

So God, being an all-knowing God, gave a reminder for fathers in Colossians 3:21 to prevent this scenario. Colossians 3:21 says "Father, provoke not your children to anger, lest they be discouraged."
