But if anyone does not provide for his own, and especially for those
of his household, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever.
1 Timothy 5:8
Fathers have a responsibility to take care of their children. It saddens me when I read about the number of fathers who do not financially support their families.
When you become an adult you realize your choices have short and long term consequences.
So many children live in poverty that would not have to be if their fathers would take responsibility for being a parent.
