Father’s Day is the time we set aside to honor the man we call Dad. His strength and encouragement are paramount in our lives. And no matter how old we get, he’s the one we turn to for wisdom and guidance.
In my life, my dad has always been faithful to point me to Jesus and guide me to His truth. This source of unwavering strength has given me the resolve to push past the hard times and move forward in faith even when it seemed impossible. What a blessing it is to have a strong father who loves the Lord!
Plus, my dad and I have so many things in common. We love antiques and shopping for them together. We love old black and white movies, especially if they have Cary Grant in them. And we may not love it, but we work pretty well as a team on home repair projects.
So, as Father’s Day approaches, I wanted to share some Strong Bible Verses for Father’s Day. I hope they’ll encourage you as you think back on all the wonderful things your father has done over the years. And give you some inspiration in your relationship with him going forward.
Let’s jump right into these scriptures about Father’s Day…
Bible Verses about a Father’s Blessings
The father of a righteous child has great joy;
a man who fathers a wise son rejoices in him.
The righteous man walks in his integrity;
His children are blessed after him.
Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord,
The fruit of the womb is a reward.
Like arrows in the hand of a warrior,
So are the children of one’s youth.
Happy is the man who has his quiver full of them;
They shall not be ashamed,
But shall speak with their enemies in the gate.
Bible Verses about Honoring Your Parents
Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. “Honor your father and mother”—which is the first commandment with a promise— “so that it may go well with you and that you may enjoy long life on the earth.”
Honor your father and your mother, so that you may live long in the land the Lord your God is giving you.
Honor your father and your mother, as the Lord your God has commanded you, so that you may live long and that it may go well with you in the land the Lord your God is giving you.
For God said, ‘Honor your father and mother’ and ‘Anyone who curses their father or mother is to be put to death.’ But you say that if anyone declares that what might have been used to help their father or mother is ‘devoted to God,’ they are not to ‘honor their father or mother’ with it. Thus you nullify the word of God for the sake of your tradition.
Bible Verses about Listening to Your Father
Listen, my son, to your father’s instruction
and do not forsake your mother’s teaching.
They are a garland to grace your head
and a chain to adorn your neck.
My son, keep your father’s command
and do not forsake your mother’s teaching.
Bind them always on your heart;
fasten them around your neck.
When you walk, they will guide you;
when you sleep, they will watch over you;
when you awake, they will speak to you.
Start children off on the way they should go,
and even when they are old they will not turn from it.
Listen to your father, who gave you life,
and do not despise your mother when she is old.
Buy the truth and do not sell it—
wisdom, instruction and insight as well.
Bible Verses about Discipline
My son, do not despise the chastening of the Lord,
Nor detest His correction;
For whom the Lord loves He corrects,
Just as a father the son in whom he delights.
If you endure chastening, God deals with you as with sons; for what son is there whom a father does not chasten?
He who spares his rod hates his son,
But he who loves him disciplines him promptly.
Bible Verses about God the Father
yet for us there is one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we for Him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, through whom are all things, and through whom we live.
1 Corinthians 8:6
Do not call anyone on earth your father; for One is your Father, He who is in heaven.
And because you are sons, God has sent forth the Spirit of His Son into your hearts, crying out, “Abba, Father!”
In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.
If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him!
As a father has compassion on his children,
so the Lord has compassion on those who fear him;
P.S. In case you didn’t know, my father is also my hand model in each work of art you see here on Master’s Hand Collection. I chose him to represent the hand of God because of the close relationship we have and his strong faith in Jesus. And he thinks it’s kinda funny being a hand model. I guess that wasn’t on his bucket list.
I truly pray these Strong Bible Verses for Father’s Day have shined a light on your relationship with your earthly father, and more importantly with your Heavenly Father!
