I was listening to a sermon this Sunday night at Ethos. The speaker was Pastor Paul Swanson. He said this, “Fathers, you have to model the kind of person you want your daughters to marry.”
I want my daughter to be able to pick out the scumbags. I want a guy to provide for her and treat her well. I want him to adore her like I do. I want someone who will be so excited that he married my daughter. Moreover, I want my daughter to look for guys like that. I want her to seek out someone who loves her like her dad loves her mom.
I need to be that kind of dad. I need to be that kind of husband.
This one statement that Paul made started to make me re-think stuff. How will my attitude, my response to situations, and my life show my daughter who she should marry?
