“And these words which I command you today shall be in your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up. You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.” (Deuteronomy 6:6-9)
Happy Fathers Day to the Dad’s!
A father is a gift to his children. But a father needs to have the heart of the true Father, Almighty God. Of all the attributes that Jesus brought out about Almighty God, the greatest is that He called Him Father. True fathers are not perfect, but they have such a love in their heart for their children that, at times, it feels like their heart wants to burst.
A father wants the best for his kids, yet he knows that the best for his kids is to let them make mistakes and hit bumps in life.
What Is A Dad?
A Dad is someone who wants to always catch you before you fall but instead picks you up,
brushes you off, and lets you try again.
A Dad is someone who wants to keep you from making mistakes but instead lets you find your own way, even though his heart breaks in silence when you get hurt.
A Dad is someone who holds you when you cry, scolds you when you break the rules, shines with pride when you succeed, and has faith in you even when you fail.
Dads, the greatest thing that we can do for our children is to show them the Father God. Spend time with your children, and be a man of God, and a man that walks in the ways of God. Remember, you are the image of God to your children, so let them see a big, loving Father: one who is there when they need him, and one whose passion is after the heart of the true Father, Almighty God.
Heavenly Father, Today, I make a decision to be the person that my children can look at to see the Father God. Today I make a decision to live a life that says really loudly, “God loves you and so do I” Bless the fathers, who have taken upon themselves the responsibility of parenting. Bless those parents who have lost a spouse to death … or divorce who are parenting their children alone. Strengthen them by your love that they may become the loving, caring persons they are meant to be. Guide them to be good role models and loving to their children. Help them to be a father like You are. Give them grace and patience to handle situations in a loving way. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
Personal Note… I wish to praise You God for the gift of Fatherhood. You blessed me with three amazing children, Marissa, Michael and Larry, two which are Fathers themselves now. Also three amazing grand children, Lila, Lane and Baby Noah. My friend Roy Squyres who has been like a Father to me. Even with all my mistakes and screw-ups along the way, you Lord have always helped me. I am so greatful for you love and direction.
