How to Be a Father and God's Example in the Bible Being a father is one of the greatest things a man can do. Not every man has what it takes to be a father. God has only granted certain men with this very important job. In a perfect world a man becomes a father when his wife gives birth to a child, but in today's society it is not necessarily a MAN's wife that may give birth to his child but a girlfriend. No matter how it happens it all starts out the same way.

King Hamlet must have been a good father for his son to be so devoted and loyal to him.
No father should watch their own son or daughter do drugs. Society is so quick to judge when they have never had to deal with the issues themselves. I wouldn’t consider David trying to save his own son’s life an addiction, but as more of an obligation.

He does show his inability to watch his son throw his life away.
