What is a Father? A Father is symbolically the top role or responsibility that a man can obtain. When we look throughout the New Testament Jesus always addressed God as the Father. It’s a role that requires great responsibility, leadership, commitment, and most importantly love. Psychologist suggest that a Father Love has the greatest influence on a childs life more than anything else
So why do we as a society look so negatively at Fathers? We look at TV and see images of Homer Simpson or Al Bundy. This is the image our society has portrayed the Father. Men throughout history have failed greatly in their role as Father or they abandoned their role all together, this is why I believe we have so many social issues in society today.
However we need to know that we have a Heavenly Father, who will never leave or forsake us. He will show us grace and mercy when we don’t expect it. And his Love endures forever, we can come to know this Father through our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ
So today I would like to honor all Fathers, lets strive to be the best men we can to influence and support our children in becoming the best they can be. Sure maybe we failed from time to time, we can continue to still strive to be the best men for our families in Jesus name!
