MBFLP – Preparing Boys To Support A Family

Preparing Boys to Support a Family

One of the responsibilities of a husband and father is to provide for his family’s needs. We want our sons to be prepared for that role when they leave our home, but it doesn’t magically happen on their 18th birthday or graduating from college — it comes from lessons learned for many years beforehand! Are you thinking long term with your sons? Are you training them to think like providers, not consumers only? Are they learning the joy of “taking care of the family” in some way? This episode, we talk about all these things on the way to preparing boys to support a family!

The culture seems totally adrift on the concept of real, Biblical manhood–and it’s having an impact on boys and young men, even in our own families! God has plans and expectations for our sons, but the manly virtues we want to see when they’re grown are mighty challenging in the immature, untrained form we see in our boys. Join the parents of six sons as they talk about practical ideas for cooperating with God’s design and not just surviving, but enjoying, raising “real men” for His kingdom!
