The Tabernacle and Holy Temple were constructed so that man could enjoy the Divine Presence (Shechinah). In the Old Testament, the cloud by day an firey pillar by night served as physical protections. In latter-day temples, the covenants of the temple provide spiritual protection from sin and temptation. Covenants are how Heavenly Father is present in our lives. Similarly, our involvement with our children can protect them. Fathers being present and involved in our children's lives will likewise protect them from harm and temptation.
