Bible Verses About Being a Good Father
13 As a father has compassion on his children, so the LORD has compassion on those who fear him;
4 Fathers, do not exasperate your children; instead, bring them up in the training and instruction of the Lord.
21 Fathers, do not embitter your children, or they will become discouraged.
24 The father of a righteous man has great joy; he who has a wise son delights in him.
3 Sons are a heritage from the LORD, children a reward from him. 4 Like arrows in the hands of a warrior are sons born in one's youth. 5 Blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them. They will not be put to shame when they contend with their enemies in the gate.
11 My son, do not despise the LORD's discipline and do not resent his rebuke, 12 because the LORD disciplines those he loves, as a father the son he delights in.
6 Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it.
7 Endure hardship as discipline; God is treating you as sons. For what son is not disciplined by his father?
22 Listen to your father, who gave you life, and do not despise your mother when she is old.
26 He who fears the LORD has a secure fortress, and for his children it will be a refuge.
12 "Honor your father and your mother, so that you may live long in the land the LORD your God is giving you.
6 These commandments that I give you today are to be upon your hearts. 7 Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. 8 Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. 9 Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates.
29 Then I said to you, "Do not be terrified; do not be afraid of them. 30 The LORD your God, who is going before you, will fight for you, as he did for you in Egypt, before your very eyes, 31 and in the desert. There you saw how the LORD your God carried you, as a father carries his son, all the way you went until you reached this place."
1 John 3:1
1 How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him.
1 Corinthians 16:13
13 Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be men of courage; be strong.
6 He will turn the hearts of the fathers to their children, and the hearts of the children to their fathers; or else I will come and strike the land with a curse."
9 Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go."
24 For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and they will become one flesh.
16 "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
1 Thessalonians 2:11-12
11 For you know that we dealt with each of you as a father deals with his own children, 12 encouraging, comforting and urging you to live lives worthy of God, who calls you into his kingdom and glory.
20 Children, obey your parents in everything, for this pleases the Lord.
9 And do not call anyone on earth 'father,' for you have one Father, and he is in heaven.
9 "Which of you, if his son asks for bread, will give him a stone? 10 Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a snake? 11 If you, then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him!
8 Yet, O LORD, you are our Father. We are the clay, you are the potter; we are all the work of your hand.
32 for the LORD detests a perverse man but takes the upright into his confidence.
