60 Psalm 1121 ¶ Praise the LORD!Blessed is the man who fears the LORD,who greatly delights in his commandments!2 His offspring will be mighty in the land;the generation of the upright will be blessed.3 Wealth and riches are in his house,and his righteousness endures forever.4 Light dawns in the darkness for the upright;he is gracious, merciful, and righteous.
615 It is well with the man who deals generously and lends; who conducts his affairs with justice. 6 ¶ For the righteous will never be moved;he will be remembered forever.7 He is not afraid of bad news;his heart is firm, trusting in the LORD.8 His heart is steady; he will not be afraid,until he looks in triumph on his adversaries.
629 He has distributed freely; he has given to the poor; his righteousness endures forever;his horn is exalted in honor.10 The wicked man sees it and is angry;he gnashes his teeth and melts away;the desire of the wicked will perish!

70Fatherhood programs teach men to be dads They target fathers who are young, urban, unmarried and joblessBy Tricia Bishop, The Baltimore Sun
73“Now you tell me, when a father goes ahead and washes diapers or performs some other mean task for his child, and someone ridicules him as an effeminate fool, though that father is acting in the spirit just described and in Christian faith, my dear fellow you tell me, which of the two is most keenly ridiculing the other? God, with all his angels and creatures, is smiling, not because that father is washing diapers, but because he is doing so in Christian faith. Those who sneer at him and see only the task but not the faith are ridiculing God with all his creatures, as the biggest fool on earth.”Martin Luther’s “Sermon on the Estate of Marriage” (1522)
