Dr James Dobson once said that “when families go, the nation goes”. Our nation has become wealthier and economically more vibrant over the years. However, are our families becoming stronger and more stable as well? Who is responsible for building strong families? What happens to children when families become dysfunctional? Every child is precious to God. Parents have the responsibility to help their children find and fulfil their destiny in God. Fathers, the appointed head of the household, have a significant role to play in building strong families, and in turn, building a strong nation. One way that the church can impact society is to build strong families and to father the fatherless.
