Bible Verses for Fathers Psalms 103:13 As a father shows compassion to his children, so the LORD shows compassion to those who fear him. Psalms 127:3-5 Behold, children are a heritage from the LORD, the fruit of the womb a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the children of one’s youth. Blessed is the man who fills his quiver with them! He shall not be put to shame when he speaks with his enemies in the gate. Proverbs 23:24 The father of the righteous will greatly rejoice; he who fathers a wise son will be glad in him. Proverbs 20:7 The righteous who walks in his integrity—blessed are his children after him! 1 Thessalonians 2:11-12 For you know how, like a father with his children, we exhorted each one of you and encouraged you and charged you to walk in a manner worthy of God, who calls you into his own kingdom and glory. Proverbs 10:1 A wise son makes a glad father, but a foolish son is a sorrow to his mother. Luke 15:20 -23 And he arose and came to his father. But while he was still a long way off, his father saw him and felt compassion, and ran and embraced him and kissed him. And the son said to him, ‘Father, I have sinned against heaven and before you. I am no longer worthy to be called your son. But the father said to his servants, ‘Bring quickly the best robe, and put it on him, and put a ring on his hand, and shoes on his feet. And bring the fattened calf and kill it, and cet us eat and celebrate. For this my son was dead, and is alive again; he was lost, and is found.’ And they began to celebrate. Exodus 20:12 Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long in the land that the LORD your God is giving you. Proverbs 4:1–4 Hear, O sons, a father’s instruction, and be attentive, that you may gain insight, for I give you good precepts; do not forsake my teaching. When I was a son with my father, tender, the only one in the sight of my mother, he taught me and said to me, “Let your heart hold fast my words; keep my commandments, and live."

1 Sarah R = "The message of the Bible is that we are saved through our faith in God. It is God who does the saving of our souls, not because we have earned it or deserved it but because of His great love and mercy. So what is it saying here, then? Being a Christian means more than just believing in Jesus. It means walking in faith. If we say we believe but our life does not reflect that we believe, how is that faith? Rather faith is actively seeking after God and living a life that is pleasing to Him."
2 Sarah R = "This is from the story of the prodigal son. You can see the whole story in Luke 15."
3 Sarah R = "This is one of the ten commandments, and it is the only commandment that comes with a promise - if you honor your parents, then your days will be long. "
