Husbands Who Love And LeadSeries: How to Have the Family You Always Wanted
Scripture Reading: Ephesians 5:25-33
Husbands Who Love and Lead
Homer Simpson was an icon of my generation. He was the father of The Simpsons, an animated sitcom family whose show began in the late 80s and still runs today. It is the longest running scripted TV sitcom in America. If you’ve ever watched the show, you know the character of Homer Simpson is that of a fool, quite frankly. He is typically portrayed as immature, obnoxious, and clueless as to the needs of the rest of his family. He was and is current television’s portrayal of the modern father and husband.
Homer may have been one of the first TV characters to display that type of father, but he was not the last. Many shows and movies since have portrayed a hopelessly senseless man in the role of “leader” of the family but who is also terribly incompetent in the position. Many of the funny moments these shows and movies contain revolve around the clumsy antics of the father.
As Christians, this should lead us to some level of frustration. Is this what God desires for husbands and fathers? Is this the design for biblical masculinity? If not, what is? This morning we explore the role of the godly husband and attempt to better understand the mandate God has given the man for his marriage. Join us this morning as we finish out our series, “How to Have the Family You’ve Always Wanted” with our last lesson, “Husbands Who Love and Lead.”
