    I’m preaching Haggai Chapter one about God’s Solution to Misplaced Priorities, with the main point being that as father’s we are the leaders and if we respond in obedience like Zerrubbabel and Joshua did then we can lead our families the right way as they led the people to rebuild the temple. But first they had to give up their excuses, and their self-interests. God bless you for this site it has been very helpful to me.

      Thanks Andy! So glad you are finding this site helpful. Excellent idea for a Father’s Day sermon. I have never heard Haggai on Father’s Day, but it totally applies. Hope it goes well.
