1 A Tale of Two Dads

2 David’s Son (His son) “established himself firmly over his kingdom, for the LORD his God was with him and made him exceedingly great.”

3 Eli’s Sons “(his) sons were wicked men; they had no regard for the LORD”

4 What made David a Successful Parent? He Taught his son Godliness & Modeled it for him

5 Gen. Douglas Macarthur By profession I am a soldier and take pride in that, but I am prouder—infinitely prouder—to be a father. A soldier destroys, a father builds. The one has the potentiality of death; the other embodies creation and life. “It is my hope that my son, when I am gone, will remember me not from the battlefield, but in the home, repeating with him our simple daily prayers.”

6 1 Chronicles 28:9,20 And you, my son Solomon, acknowledge the God of your father, and serve him with wholehearted devotion and with a willing mind, for the LORD searches every heart and understands every motive behind the thoughts. If you seek him, he will be found by you; but if you forsake him, he will reject you forever… Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Do not be afraid or discouraged, for the LORD God, my God, is with you…

7 1 Chronicles 28:9,20 He will not fail you or forsake you until all the work for the service of the temple of the LORD is finished

8 1 Chronicles 28:9,20 And you, my son Solomon, acknowledge the God of your father, and serve him with wholehearted devotion and with a willing mind, for the LORD searches every heart and understands every motive behind the thoughts. If you seek him, he will be found by you; but if you forsake him, he will reject you forever… Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Do not be afraid or discouraged, for the LORD God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you until all the work for the service of the temple of the LORD is finished.

9 1 Chronicles 22:12-13 May the LORD give you discretion and understanding when he puts you in command over Israel, so that you may keep the law of the LORD your God. Then you will have success if you are careful to observe the decrees and laws that the LORD gave Moses for Israel…

10 Proverbs 3:11-12 My son, do not despise the Lord's discipline and do not resent his rebuke, because the LORD disciplines those he loves, as a father the son he delights in.

11 1 Chronicles 28:9,20 And you, my son Solomon, acknowledge the God of your father, and serve him with wholehearted devotion and with a willing mind, for the LORD searches every heart and understands every motive behind the thoughts. If you seek him, he will be found by you; but if you forsake him, he will reject you forever… Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Do not be afraid or discouraged, for the LORD God, my God, is with you...

12 1 Chronicles 28:9,20 He will not fail you or forsake you until all the work for the service of the temple of the LORD is finished.

13 1 Samuel 2:12-17, 22-25 Eli's sons were wicked men; they had no regard for the LORD. Now it was the practice of the priests with the people that whenever anyone offered a sacrifice and while the meat was being boiled, the servant of the priest would come with a three-pronged fork in his hand. He would plunge it into the pan or kettle or caldron or pot, and the priest would take for himself whatever the fork brought up...

14 1 Samuel 2:12-17, 22-25 This is how they treated all the Israelites who came to Shiloh. But even before the fat was burned, the servant of the priest would come and say to the man who was sacrificing, "Give the priest some meat to roast; he won't accept boiled meat from you, but only raw."

15 1 Samuel 2:12-17, 22-25 If the man said to him, "Let the fat be burned up first, and then take whatever you want," the servant would then answer, "No, hand it over now; if you don't, I'll take it by force." This sin of the young men was very great in the Lord's sight, for they were treating the Lord's offering with contempt….

16 1 Samuel 2:12-17, 22-25 Now Eli, who was very old, heard about everything his sons were doing to all Israel and how they slept with the women who served at the entrance to the Tent of Meeting. So he said to them, "Why do you do such things?

17 1 Samuel 2:12-17, 22-25 I hear from all the people about these wicked deeds of yours. No, my sons; it is not a good report that I hear spreading among the Lord's people. If a man sins against another man, God may mediate for him; but if a man sins against the LORD, who will intercede for him?" His sons, however, did not listen to their father's rebuke…

18 Dr. John Macarthur If you fail, father, to teach your son to fear God, the devil will teach him to hate God. If you fail to teach your son to guard his mind, the devil will gladly teach him to have an open mind. If you fail to teach your son to obey his parents, the devil will teach him to rebel and break his parent's heart. If you fail to teach your son to select his companions, the devil will gladly choose them for him. If you fail to teach your son to control his body, the devil will teach him to give it over completely to lust…-

19 Dr. John Macarthur If you fail to teach your son to enjoy the marriage partner that God has given him, the devil will teach him to destroy the marriage. If you fail to teach your son to watch his words, the devil will fill his mouth with filth. If you fail to teach your son to pursue his work, the devil will make his laziness a tool of hell. If you fail to teach your son to manage his money, the devil will teach him to waste it on riotous living. And if you fail to teach your son to love his neighbor, the devil will gladly teach him to love only himself…

20 Dr. John Macarthur We have a great responsibility to this generation and the next as fathers.

21 1 Chronicles 22:14-17,19 I have taken great pains to provide for the temple of the LORD a hundred thousand talents of gold, a million talents of silver, quantities of bronze and iron too great to be weighed, and wood and stone. And you may add to them. You have many workmen: stonecutters, masons and carpenters, as well as men skilled in every kind of work in gold and silver, bronze and iron-- craftsmen beyond number. Now begin the work, and the LORD be with you." Then David ordered all the leaders of Israel to help his son Solomon…Now devote your heart and soul to seeking the LORD your God.

22 What made David a Successful Parent? He TAUGHT his son Godliness & Modeled it for him He TAUGHT his son Godliness & Modeled it for him He PREPARED his son for God’s Mission & did everything possible to make him successful He PREPARED his son for God’s Mission & did everything possible to make him successful He PRAYED for his son He PRAYED for his son

23 1 Chronicles 22:14-17,19 Begin to build the sanctuary of the LORD God, so that you may bring the ark of the covenant of the LORD and the sacred articles belonging to God into the temple that will be built for the Name of the LORD

24 1 Chronicles 29:18-19 O LORD, God of our fathers Abraham, Isaac and Israel, keep this desire in the hearts of your people forever, and keep their hearts loyal to you. And give my son Solomon the wholehearted devotion to keep your commands, requirements and decrees and to do everything to build the palatial structure for which I have provided."

25 What was the result in Solomon’s Life? He Carried on his Father’s Legacy He Carried on his Father’s Legacy When Put to the Test, he Passed When Put to the Test, he Passed He Kept his Priorities Straight He Kept his Priorities Straight He was Blessed by God He was Blessed by God He Passed on his faith to HIS sons He Passed on his faith to HIS sons

26 1 Chronicles 29:18-19 O LORD, God of our fathers Abraham, Isaac and Israel, keep this desire in the hearts of your people forever, and keep their hearts loyal to you. And give my son Solomon the wholehearted devotion to keep your commands, requirements and decrees and to do everything to build the palatial structure for which I have provided."

27 2 Chronicles 1:1 Solomon son of David established himself firmly over his kingdom, for the LORD his God was with him and made him exceedingly great.

28 2 Chronicles 1:7-12 That night God appeared to Solomon and said to him, "Ask for whatever you want me to give you." Solomon answered God, "You have shown great kindness to David my father and have made me king in his place. Now, LORD God, let your promise to my father David be confirmed, for you have made me king over a people who are as numerous as the dust of the earth. Give me wisdom and knowledge, that I may lead this people, for who is able to govern this great people of yours?"

29 2 Chronicles 1:7-12 God said to Solomon, "Since this is your heart's desire and you have not asked for wealth, riches or honor, nor for the death of your enemies, and since you have not asked for a long life but for wisdom and knowledge to govern my people over whom I have made you king, therefore wisdom and knowledge will be given you. And I will also give you wealth, riches and honor, such as no king who was before you ever had and none after you will have."

30 1 Chronicles 29:25 The LORD highly exalted Solomon in the sight of all Israel and bestowed on him royal splendor such as no king over Israel ever had before.

31 Proverbs 1:1-2, 7-8 The proverbs of Solomon son of David, king of Israel: for attaining wisdom and discipline; for understanding words of insight… The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and discipline. Listen, my son, to your father's instruction…

32 Proverbs 4:1-5 Listen, my sons, to a father's instruction; pay attention and gain understanding. I give you sound learning, so do not forsake my teaching. When I was a boy in my father's house, still tender, and an only child of my mother, he taught me and said, "Lay hold of my words with all your heart; keep my commands and you will live. Get wisdom, get understanding; do not forget my words or swerve from them.

34 Proverbs (1:7) - The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and discipline. (9:10) - "The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding (3:7) - not be wise in your own eyes; fear the LORD and shun evil. (8:13a) - To fear the LORD is to hate evil;

35 Proverbs 3:5-6 Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.

36 Proverbs 1:10-19 My son, if sinners entice you, do not give in to them. If they say, "Come along with us; let's lie in wait for someone's blood, let's waylay some harmless soul; let's swallow them alive, like the grave, and whole, like those who go down to the pit; we will get all sorts of valuable things and fill our houses with plunder; throw in your lot with us, and we will share a common purse"--

37 Proverbs1:10-19 Proverbs 1:10-19 my son, do not go along with them, do not set foot on their paths; for their feet rush into sin, they are swift to shed blood. How useless to spread a net in full view of all the birds! These men lie in wait for their own blood; they waylay only themselves! Such is the end of all who go after ill-gotten gain; it takes away the lives of those who get it.

38 Proverbs 4:14-16 Do not set foot on the path of the wicked or walk in the way of evil men. Avoid it, do not travel on it; turn from it and go on your way. For they cannot sleep till they do evil; they are robbed of slumber till they make someone fall.

39 Proverbs 3:9-10 Honor the LORD with your wealth, with the firstfruits of all your crops; then your barns will be filled to overflowing, and your vats will brim over with new wine.

40 Proverbs 6:1-6 My son, if you have put up security for your neighbor, if you have struck hands in pledge for another,… Allow no sleep to your eyes, no slumber to your eyelids. Free yourself, like a gazelle from the hand of the hunter, like a bird from the snare of the fowler.

41 Proverbs 3:11-12 My son, do not despise the Lord's discipline and do not resent his rebuke, because the LORD disciplines those he loves, as a father the son he delights in.

42 J.C. Ryle Parents, I plead with you, for your children's sake, beware of over-indulgence. I call on you to remember, that it is your primary duty to consult their real interests, and not their whims and fantasies—to train them, not to humor them—to train them for their benefit, not merely to please them. You must not give way to every wish and whim of your child's mind, no matter how much you may love him. You must not let him assume that his will is all-important, and that he has only to desire something and it will be done…

43 J.C. Ryle Do not, I beg you, make your children idols, lest God should take them away, and break your idol, just to convince you of your folly. Learn to say "No" to your children. Show them that you are able to refuse whatever you think is not right for them. Show them that you are ready to punish disobedience, and that when you speak of punishment, you are not only ready to threaten, but also to perform. Do not threaten too much. Seldom punish, but when you do, make it sincere and firm…

44 J.C. Ryle …frequent and light punishment is truly a wretched system of discipline. But if you are not willing to put forth the effort, it will take, to discipline your children when they are young, then be assured they will give you plenty of trouble when they are old. Choose which you prefer

45 Proverbs 9:8-9 Do not rebuke a mocker or he will hate you; rebuke a wise man and he will love you. Instruct a wise man and he will be wiser still; teach a righteous man and he will add to his learning.

46 Proverbs (10:17) - He who heeds discipline shows the way to life, but whoever ignores correction leads others astray. (12:1) - Whoever loves discipline loves knowledge, but he who hates correction is stupid.

47 Proverbs 4:24 Put away perversity from your mouth; keep corrupt talk far from your lips.

48 Proverbs 6:12-14 A scoundrel and villain, who goes about with a corrupt mouth, who winks with his eye, signals with his feet and motions with his fingers, who plots evil with deceit in his heart-- he always stirs up dissension

49 Proverbs 10:18 He who conceals his hatred has lying lips, and whoever spreads slander is a fool.

50 Proverbs 10:19 When words are many, sin is not absent, but he who holds his tongue is wise.

51 Proverbs 10:19 When words are many, sin is not absent, but he who holds his tongue is wise.

52 1 Kings 11:1-6 King Solomon, however, loved many foreign women besides Pharaoh's daughter-- Moabites, Ammonites, Edomites, Sidonians and Hittites. They were from nations about which the LORD had told the Israelites, "You must not intermarry with them, because they will surely turn your hearts after their gods." Nevertheless, Solomon held fast to them in love. He had seven hundred wives of royal birth and three hundred concubines, and his wives led him astray.

53 1 Kings 11:1-6 As Solomon grew old, his wives turned his heart after other gods, and his heart was not fully devoted to the LORD his God, as the heart of David his father had been. He followed Ashtoreth the goddess of the Sidonians, and Molech the detestable god of the Ammonites. So Solomon did evil in the eyes of the LORD; he did not follow the LORD completely, as David his father had done.

54 Proverbs 5:3-8 For the lips of an adulteress drip honey, and her speech is smoother than oil; but in the end she is bitter as gall, sharp as a double-edged sword. Her feet go down to death; her steps lead straight to the grave. She gives no thought to the way of life; her paths are crooked, but she knows it not. Now then, my sons, listen to me; do not turn aside from what I say. Keep to a path far from her, do not go near the door of her house…

55 Proverbs 6:23-29 For these commands are a lamp, this teaching is a light, and the corrections of discipline are the way to life, keeping you from the immoral woman, from the smooth tongue of the wayward wife. Do not lust in your heart after her beauty or let her captivate you with her eyes, for the prostitute reduces you to a loaf of bread, and the adulteress preys upon your very life..

56 Proverbs 6:23-29 Can a man scoop fire into his lap without his clothes being burned? Can a man walk on hot coals without his feet being scorched? So is he who sleeps with another man's wife; no one who touches her will go unpunished

57 Proverbs 5:,19-23 Drink water from your own cistern, running water from your own well…A loving doe, a graceful deer-- may her breasts satisfy you always, may you ever be captivated by her love. Why be captivated, my son, by an adulteress? Why embrace the bosom of another man's wife?

58 Proverbs 5:,19-23 For a man's ways are in full view of the LORD, and he examines all his paths. The evil deeds of a wicked man ensnare him; the cords of his sin hold him fast. He will die for lack of discipline, led astray by his own great folly.

59 Proverbs 10:4-5 Lazy hands make a man poor, but diligent hands bring wealth. He who gathers crops in summer is a wise son, but he who sleeps during harvest is a disgraceful son.

60 Proverbs 5:,19-23 For a man's ways are in full view of the LORD, and he examines all his paths. The evil deeds of a wicked man ensnare him; the cords of his sin hold him fast. He will die for lack of discipline, led astray by his own great folly.

61 Proverbs (1:7) - The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and discipline. (9:10) - "The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding (3:7) - not be wise in your own eyes; fear the LORD and shun evil. (8:13a) - To fear the LORD is to hate evil;
