For I know him, that he will command his children and his household after him, and they shall keep the way of the Lord , to do justice and judgment; that the Lord may bring upon Abraham that which he hath spoken of him.
Genesis 18:19 KJV
God honors fathers who will raise their children in the fear and admonition of the Lord. His greatest desire is that one man and one woman bring forth and raise up righteous seed. This fulfills the intent of God’s command to “be fruitful and multiply.”
This simple truth holds true of both natural and spiritual children.
When a father takes care to raise his children in the way they should go, He then will “bring upon [him] that which he has spoken of him.”
