Father’s Day

17 06 2012

Americans have a knack for turning celebrations into a marketing opportunity. We are not alone in this, others around the world even in different governmental structures do the same. If someone makes a buck from a celebration it does not diminish the importance of the thing we celebrate.

Today, is Father’s day in the USA. All over the nation folks will give their dads a token of affection and recognition. For some their will be the annual giving of the “goofy tie” or other gag gift. Others will prepare a hand-made “You’re the best dad in the whole world card” or celebrate dad with his favorite meal. Whatever is done for the most part there is a genuine attempt to express the value of Fatherhood.

Our culture is blurring the importance and significance of Fatherhood. It would be a joy and delight to say that every Father was honorable and faithful to his call, but sadly that is not always the case. There are absentee dads, abusive dads, abandoning dads, sure! But there are also adoring dads, faithful fathers, and loving leaders. I want to be one of the faithful.

Today, let’s honor Fatherhood for all it should be and has been in our lives. Let’s work to make Fatherhood the place of respect and honor that God intended it to be. Give honor where honor is due, forgive where it is required, love with a whole heart, trust God to be to you what man has failed to be.

As Fathers you are the most powerful force for good in the world. A child’s soul is a terrible thing to waste. You have been granted the most awesome of responsibilities. Make today special for those who love you by stepping up to Fatherhood!

Have a Happy Father’s Day, laugh a lot, cry a little, love fully–Bless you!

Amen, Pastor Guy. I cried several times over this weekend; mainly cause I miss my dad…..but I rejoice because I’ll see him again in heaven someday. My heavenly Father means more to me now and he is Abba always.
