And Ye Fathers

Here is a poem I wrote for Fathers Day

And Ye Fathers

There once was a father, this father had a son.
He also had a daughter. He wasn't the only one.
But just like most fathers he forgot one important thing.
He forgot to watch his walk and talk for to his children, he was a king.

So instead of training up his children in the way that they should go.
He let them do whatever they wanted and rarely told them no.
He trained his dog and chained it up but let his children run.
He told himself there only kids just let them have a little fun.

Take the kids to church on Sunday that was his day to sleep in.
That was of course until it was time for the ball game to begin.
This father never knew what an important role he was supposed to play.
Instead of watching the ball game he should have taught them to pray.

For some reason, this father seemed to think only of self.
Day after day, and year after year his bible collected dust on the shelf.
If only he opened it and read it from the beginning to the end.
He would have learned that somewhere forever him and his children they would spend.

For in that Bible Jesus said I am the way the truth the life.
There was no other way to heaven when we reached the end of life.
That same Bible said that everyone must be born again.
Or forever when they die in the lake of fire they would spend.

The Bible says it is appointed unto men once to die.
This father didn't teach his children this can someone tell me why.
The Bible says that there's non righteous no, not even one.
That's why God sent for us to die his only begotten Son.

We've broken God's law lied lusted and stole and our parents disobeyed.
That why God had to provide a substitute for our sins to be paid.
It's true God is loving, but he is more than that He is also Holy and just.
In order to be saved, we must call upon Christ and in him completely trust.

Dear Fathers, please, I beg and plead for you and your children it's not too late
To repent and call upon the name of Christ and escape this awful fate.
For your children's sake invest some time and look into the matter of life and death.
For there's no chance to change your mind when you and your children take your final breath.

Children's children are the crown of old men; and the glory of children are their fathers. Proverbs 17:6
Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it. Proverbs 22:6
And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord. Ephesians 6:4
For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. Romans 10:13
