Fathers be good to your daughters
Daughters will love like you do
Girls become lovers who turn into mothers
So mothers be good to your daughters too
John Mayer, “Daughters”
O my people, hear my teaching; listen to the
words of my mouth. I will open my mouth in
parables, I will utter hidden things, things from
of old - what we have heard and known, what
our fathers have told us. We will not hide
them from their children; we will tell the next
generation the praiseworthy deeds of the Lord,
his power, and the wonders he has done.
He decreed statutes for Jacob and established
the law in Israel, which he commanded our
forefathers to teach their children, so the next
generation would know them, even the
children yet to be born, and they in turn would

trust in God and would not forget his deeds
but would keep his commands.

I CORINTHIANS 11:1
For you yourselves know how you ought to
follow our example. We were not idle when
we were with you, nor did we eat anyone’s
food without paying for it. On the contrary, we
worked night and day, labouring and toiling so
that we would not be a burden to any of you.
We did this, not because we do not have the
right to such help, but in order to make
ourselves a model for you to follow.
2 THESSALONIANS 3:7-9
I plead with you, brothers, become like me.
We can’t avoid leaving ruts. To have a child is
to influence another life, perhaps even several
generations. The only question is in what
direction will our ruts carry our children?
Gary Thomas, Sacred Parenting, 177.
For you know that we dealt with each of you as
a father deals with his own children,
encouraging, comforting, and urging you to
live lives worthy of God, who calls you into his
kingdom and glory.
I THESSALONIANS 2:11-12
