Men are the head of the family and a lot of responsibility is placed on them. The Bible has encouraging verses that will help men to live a fulfilled life and be able to accomplish the purpose of God for men. It takes the grace of God for men to handle and manage any situation that life throws at them.
Men are given the responsibility of taking care of their families right from the beginning of creation, but satan is always fighting against what God has instituted.
Adam was placed in the garden of Eden to work. Joshua was a man who leads his family to worship the Lord. Paul stresses that every man should love their wife just as Jesus loves the church. And that they should provide for their families. May God draw the man to himself, strengthen them, and lead them to the paths of righteousness
These 15 Bible Verses will encourage and help men to also understand their roles in the family.
