1 Corinthians 7:2, Ephesians 6:4

I saw a guest column in The Cedar Rapids Gazette today entitled “Dads Matter.”  The writer pulled together facts like:  “Since 1960, the number of U.S. father-absent homes is up 400 percent” (National Fatherhood Initiative), “71 percent of all high school dropouts come from fatherless homes,” and, “75 percent of all adolescents in chemical abuse centers come from fatherless homes” (National Center for Health Statistics).

There is no doubt that dads have an important role.  God’s word supports the marriage of a woman and a man and godly training for children.  If only society would follow God’s way.
