Dads as Prophets, Priests, and Kings

Pastoring Your Family and the Puritans – Winfield Bevins from Acts 29 Network on Vimeo.

George Whitefield once said, “A man ought to look upon himself as obliged to [his family] act in three capacities:

  • As a prophet, to instruct:
  • As a priest, to pray for and with;
  • As a king, to govern, direct, and provide for them.

How are you doing in these 3 areas? Which area needs the greatest attention? In my experience, I tend to place more value on being a prophet and king and less on being a priest for my children.
