We're too used to the plastic worthless kinda fruit that at first looks good in a bowl on a table, that we can totally be caught off-guard with the genuine.
Directed-giving with right motives is an act of generosity. Let Jesus guide. This kind of giving is fruitful. It's prayerful and tactful--it's about first sowing a seed. The seed of biblical-faith will produce a great harvest of fruit. God will cause it to happen and then bring the growth.
The Christian type of fruit is real love, not merely some Hollywood feelin' of love. “Fruit is always the miraculous, the created; it is never the result of willing, but always a growth. The fruit of the Spirit is a gift of God, and only He can produce it. They who bear it know as little about it as the tree knows of its fruit. They know only the power of Him on whom their life depends” ― Dietrich Bonhoeffer
You can be happily “planted” in the rich soil of God’s vineyard and continue to “bear fruit” for all the years that God gives to you.

You can do this Christian dad! Daily with gentle strength, lead those children to Jesus. You're not alone in it. Believer, your child needs approval, edification and encouragement when things are good every bit as much as he or she needs corrections in things that are not. Be home when ya need to be instead of AWOL!
Fathers, in many ways, the view your kids form of God as Father ..for the most part.. is based on how they view you--how you walk the walk.— Kurt von Schleicher (@kurtwvs) May 24, 2016

Fear not. No one can take you out of God's will for you. Choose to trust the One who made you and has a plan. "A broken and contrite heart you, God, will not despise." Psalm 51:17
Had a friend come visit me today who is really hurting cuz his wife is leaving him. Said he fears being alone, but in his head he knows God is near and hasn't rejected him. I hate that kinda fear!
"Such LOVE has no fear, because perfect love expels all fear."(1 John 4:18, Bible)
"Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God." (Matthew 5:10)

Why did you bury your talent, Sir? And sheepishly the poor man responded to him with.. I was afraid. #DareToBelieve
"Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life? "And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you—you of little faith? So do not worry, saying, 'What shall we eat?' or 'What shall we drink?' or 'What shall we wear?' For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well." ~ Jesus, in Matthew 6:25-34
"The presence of (bad) fear does not mean you have no faith. Fear visits everyone. But make your (bad) fear a (very short-term) visitor and not a (long-term) resident." ~ Max Lucado
"You may be transferred, enlisted, commissioned, reassigned, or (perhaps even worrying) hospitalized – but brand this on your heart – you can never go where God is not." ~ Max Lucado
Think about it.. tyically only about eight percent of what people that worry.. worry about.. ever actually comes to pass. Yes, comes to pass.. to pass. Opt to fully trust and call upon Jesus Christ and obey Him, instead of worrying today. #Repeat www.Facebook.com/shareJesus

Wisely show love to, intercede for, serve with vigilance.. "You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you.." ~ Jesus, Mat. 5:44

People don't need to strive or first clean up their own life to come to Christ (the God of the Bible). That'd be so in vain religious self-will sort of reformation, a vain effort and God's never been religious at all. If you're not sure and lack assurance assurance.
You simply turn away from sin to God ..yes.. on His terms just as the Bible tells us, and trust Him. Yes, coming to Him as you are and He will forgive and clean your up life. Then, as you continue to worship and follow the Lord, as He meets all your needs.. He's got stuff for you to do.
