I read a Father’s Day card once that said something to the effect of “happy Father’s Day, you’re welcome. Without me, you wouldn’t be a dad!” Sarcasm aside, they might have hit on something important there.

The father of a righteous child has great joy; a man who fathers a wise son rejoices in him.

Proverbs 23:24

The blessing of Fatherhood is in the responsibility therein, not merely to correctly raise his child for his own benefit in old age or family business but to raise a wise and righteous child. Remember, for all intents and purposes, wisdom in the Bible is synonymous with Godliness. The only real wisdom is from above. In raising a godly son, a father gains a Brother.
