10 Things About A Humble Dad

I have been a dad only for a couple of years. And in these few years, I have come to realise that parenting is a great privilege and  a humbling responsibility as well.

“Anyone can be father, but it takes a special person to be a dad.”

Through its’ highs and lows as a dad, there are many lessons one can gradually learn about a dad and his children.  While it is one thing to be a dad, it is another thing to be a humble dad.

This post is about being a humble dad. I believe that becoming a humble dad will make you become a better dad. Therefore I present to you

10 things about a humble dad you should know

1. A humble dad apologises to his kids when he does something wrong to them.

2. A humble dad knows he does not understand every thing his children say, but he actively seeks to understand them more.

3. Only a humble dad will acknowledge that he does not know everything; there are things he can learn from his kids.

4. A humble dad knows​ that he is not perfect but he still strives to be the best he can be for his children.

5. A humble dad acknowledges that his children are indeed God’s heritage in his care and he treats them as such.

6. A humble dad knows that he cannot meet all the needs of his children without support from Above so he actively seeks the help of God through prayer.

7. A humble dad knows that his children are not perfect but he has to love them despite their imperfections.

8. A humble dad forgives his children all their wrongs because he too needs forgiveness from the Father above.

9. A humble dad values his time but he doesn’t mind spending valuable time with his children.

10. A humble dad knows that he is not just a father, he is also a teacher​ who should take delight in teaching things to his children.

    Wonderful post and list.Having been a dad for many years, Ive made many mistakes. You will too. After all we are human. But if I could give anyone advice, it would be 4 things.
    1. Bring up children in the fear and love of the Lord.
    2. Live a humble life in front of children.
    3. Always show and give love, even when not sparing the rod.
    4. Listen to them. Even if you don’t agree, Let them know why, and listen.
    God bless you in your parenting endeavors brother victor and thank you for your enlightening post’.

  3. I didn’t have a Dad for very long Victor and I didn’t have much time with him when he was alive, he was too busy and my second Dad was an Alcoholic, he wasn’t cruel or angry but he slept a lot.

    So sadly I don’t know much about earthly Dads Victor but I do know my Abba Father in Heaven and yes He is very humble because as Great and Awesome as He is, He still takes the time to listen to His Sons and Daughters and Loves and Cares for each one of us.

    Christian Love Always – Anne.

      Thank you Anne for sharing about yourself. My experience is quite a bit different from yours.

      I knew my dad very well. Although I was 17 when he died, the wonderful memories I have about him are enough to last me for a lifetime. And of course he was a humble man, the humblest dad I have ever seen.

      Just like you Anne, I also have God the Father as my dad. And I agree with you that He is a humble God. In Christ He came to my level and redeemed me.
