Bible Fathers (2)

Our Bible Reading tells us that Manoah and his wife could not have children. But one day, an angel told Manoah’s wife that she would have a son. “He will be God’s special person from before he is born. He will save the Israelites from the power of the Philistines” (verse 5b).
Manoah’s wife told him about the angel. Then Manoah prayed to God. He said (verse 8b), “Lord, I beg you to send the man of God to us again. We want him to teach us what we should do for the boy who will soon be born.” The angel returned and helped Manoah and his wife. Later, their son, Samson, was born. Samson grew up to be a leader and judge in Israel.
Manoah asked God to show him how to raise his son. Maybe you are a father or a grandfather. Or maybe you are helping to raise some children. Be sure to ask God to help and direct you as you teach your children.
