Pictures of a Good Father

When it comes to being a good father what do most young black men see? 
Can they picture their fathers passing down any legacies? 
Do they remember any male bonding or talks on how to be good men? 
Do they have any perceptions or even comprehend? 
Unfortunately too many households are single parent with only a mother in residency 
Caused by incarceration, unemployment and dysfunctional inadequacies 
Too many don't have a clue of what a good father should be 
As the father factor in their lives was one of obscurity 

But God is the ultimate father figure to each and every man 
And if you desire to be like Him read His words and follow His plans 
To become a good father you must examine the Holy Scriptures 
And hopefully you'll be able to obtain a good father picture
Now tapping into God's heavenly Twitter account 
And Facebooking the Gospel to see what its all about 
Fully prepared to formulate, cultivate and stimulate your spiritual life 
So that your behavior and way of thinking lines up with Jesus the Christ 

A picture of a good father is a man who leaves a financial legacy 
So that his children won't exist in a state of abject poverty 
By showing them how to save and how to invest
Leaving a fruitful inheritance and a full hope chest 

A picture of a good father is a man whose vine is rooted in a strong foundation 
And structured to lift him up in godly formation 
Respectful, resilient, loving, loyal and kind 
Of strong moral conviction and secure in his mind 
Knowing who he is and what he could be 
And having healthy relationships with every member of his family 

So if you're broken, bitter, angry and have any doubts
Seek God and a professional to help you work it out 
And i say this to all women and I hope you receive 
You need to let a man be a man to his family 
Stop disrespecting him and put your anger and pride to the side 
He is doing the best he can so work with him by walking stride for stride 

A picture of a good father is a man concerned about his community 
Who comprehends we live in a global society 
A man who gets involved and not stay isolated 
As we are all a part of this world that God created 
A picture of a good father is a man who loves and respects his family and community 
A man strongly rooted, striding humbly and secure in his spirituality
