Strengthening Dads 

  

Fog weakens us 

  

  1. “The lust of the flesh. I want to feel pleasure - Hedonism.”   

  1. “The lust of the eyes. I see it and I want it - Materialism.”  

  1. “The pride of life. I want to be admired. I want to be envied. I want people to think I’m God - Secularism.”  

  

Clarity strengthens us 

  

Genesis 19:1 


The two angels arrived at Sodom in the evening, and Lot was sitting in the gateway of the city.

  

Genesis 19:5 


They called to Lot, “Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us so that we can have sex with them.”

  

Genesis 19:12-13 


The two men said to Lot, “Do you have anyone else here—sons-in-law, sons or daughters, or anyone else in the city who belongs to you? Get them out of here, because we are going to destroy this place. The outcry to the Lord against its people is so great that he has sent us to destroy it.”

  

Genesis 19:16-17 


When he hesitated, the men grasped his hand and the hands of his wife and of his two daughters and led them safely out of the city, for the Lord was merciful to them.As soon as they had brought them out, one of them said, “Flee for your lives! Don’t look back, and don’t stop anywhere in the plain! Flee to the mountains or you will be swept away!”

  

Genesis 19:23-26 


By the time Lot reached Zoar, the sun had risen over the land. Then the Lord rained down burning sulfur on Sodom and Gomorrah—from the Lord out of the heavens. Thus he overthrew those cities and the entire plain, destroying all those living in the cities—and also the vegetation in the land. But Lot’s wife looked back, and she became a pillar of salt.

  

Genesis 19:36-38  


So both of Lot’s daughters became pregnant by their father. The older daughter had a son, and she named him Moab; he is the father of the Moabites of today. The younger daughter also had a son, and she named him Ben-Ammi; he is the father of the Ammonites of today.

 

Luke 17:28-33 


“It was the same in the days of Lot. People were eating and drinking, buying and selling, planting and building. But the day Lot left Sodom, fire and sulfur rained down from heaven and destroyed them all. “It will be just like this on the day the Son of Man is revealed. On that day no one who is on the housetop, with possessions inside, should go down to get them. Likewise, no one in the field should go back for anything. Remember Lot’s wife! Whoever tries to keep their life will lose it, and whoever loses their life will preserve it.

  

2 Peter 2:6-9 


If he condemned the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah by burning them to ashes, and made them an example of what is going to happen to the ungodly; and if he rescued Lot, a righteous man, who was distressed by the depraved conduct of the lawless (for that righteous man, living among them day after day, was tormented in his righteous soul by the lawless deeds he saw and heard)— if this is so, then the Lord knows how to rescue the godly from trials and to hold the unrighteous for punishment on the day of judgment. This is especiallly true of those who follow the corrupt desire of the flesh and despise authority.

   

As a man, husband, father what do you do with this? 

  

  1. Every man will reap what he sows. God will one day make things right!  

  1. You are responsible for what influences your wife and children.  

  1. If you flirt with the world, your family will pay for it.   

  1. If you lead by dying to yourself and living for Christ, not only will you live, but you will have loved and brought life to your wife and children.
