Maybe you don’t need God to take all your burdens – just your biggest one? Maybe you don’t need Jesus to move every mountain – just the one right in your path? Maybe you don’t need Him to raise every valley – just the lowest one? Maybe you don’t need the whole loaf – just a few crumbs?
Today’s message comes from Matthew 15:21-28. In it, we see the power of faithful persistence in prayer.

“I’m not sure I am really setting a very good example for my children.”
“I wish I knew how to relate better to my wife and children.”
All of these are statements heard in counseling sessions with men who were at a crossroads in terms of their family lives. truth be known, many men feel like they don’t know how to lead their families well. Perhaps they didn’t have a good example growing up, or they have made poor choices for years . . . but most men don’t feel like they lead well.
It is critical to understand what the Bible says about men and how they relate to their families. Being a good dad starts with being a good husband. the Bible gives clear instructions on how the Christian man is to lead his family, and particularly relate to his wife. The purpose of the message today is not to point out fault in our lives or to “beat up on the men” on Father’s Day, but to try to understand what real success looks like when it comes to family life.
No man is perfect. No marriage is perfect. No father is perfect. None of us lead perfectly, and none of us had perfect examples. That’s why we need our Heavenly Father to show us the way. Today, we’ll look at the path to great leadership in the home, and start the process of loving the way that Jesus loves us.
