Over the past few years, it has been common for me to hear this from people.
“I found my first playboy under my dad’s bed.”
“Dad let me try my first beer at seven years old.”
“My dad was pretty absent growing up.”
We live in a world where men have become children. We live in a world where men don’t act like men. We live in a world where is hard to be a man.
That’s why I want to recognize right here and right now just how grateful I am that my father is a man of God.
If you have a godly father, celebrate that gift.
He has embodied godly leadership in our home. At the same time, he has exhibited gentleness towards us, and not abused the leadership responsibilities that God has entrusted with him.
It was from my father that I learned to love God and love others.
It was from my father that I learned to let my perspective on all matters be shaped by the Word of God.
It was from my father that I learned to see humans as people to be loved and not objects to be used.
It’s like I said before, it is a rare gift to have a father like the one that I have. It is with this thankfulness that I want to say thank you dad, and happy father’s day!
