The Family War...and Battle Victories

Dads, you're in a war.

You must simultaneously hold a long-term view (the goal is to create adult disciples of Christ) and the short-term view (what can I do TODAY to lead my family? What does God want them to learn today? How can I make sure I'm growing in the Lord so I can keep leading this family?)

The key to success is to pursue battle victories one day at a time.

Every devotion you lead with your children is a battle victory. Every time you pray with your wife it's a battle victory. Every time you work through a forgiveness issue with your children it's a battle victory.

Jesus Christ has won the war.
