A godly father will want to show God the Father to his children. He will want to model for them the heart of Jesus.
John Piper is a pastor, a theologian, a preacher, an author, and a husband and dad and grandfather. Today’s question is one about being a husband and a dad, specifically to little ones. The question comes from a perplexed young wife and mom named Mary.
“Dear Pastor John, my husband and I recently had our first child, a beautiful baby girl. She’s now seven weeks old. My husband, however, doesn’t seem to want to help very much with her. He never changes diapers. And I have to urge him even to hold her. He claims that since he works outside of the home that he shouldn’t have to take care of her. What are your thoughts on this? What role should a Christian husband take in caring for little kids and their needs at home?”
