Happy Fathers Day

So he got up and came to his father. But while he was still a long way off, his father saw him and felt compassion for him, and ran and embraced him and kissed him. Luke 15:20

This weekend we celebrate Father’s Day, this is one of my favorite holidays because being a Father myself, I take great pride and honor in being a Father. I think it’s a role, that in modern day society likes to mock and dishonor. But I think taking on the role as a Father, is the greatest privilege and responsibility and glad God chose me to fulfill it!

When I think about being a Father and what does God expect from us, I reflect on the story of The Prodigal Son (Luke 15:11-31) Even though his son was rebellious and ungrateful, The Father still provided for the son and was merciful and compassionate with love. The Son eventually returned home and instead of The Father being filled anger, he welcomed his son with open arms and showed him true love and mercy.

This is the same relationship we can have with God our Heavenly Father. Even though at times we have been rebellious and ungrateful, God still provided Jesus to save us from our sins. And when we accept Jesus and come running back to God our Father, he greets us with open arms also not condemnation.

I want to say Thank you to my father, and thank you to my father in laws, for being great examples for me and always showing me love and mercy. I pray that I can be the best Father for my children, and show them the love and compassion throughout their entire lives in Jesus Name Amen

 

Happy Fathers Day

For I have chosen him, so that he will direct his children and his household after him to keep the way of the LORD by doing what is right and just Genesis 18:19

Just as God has chosen Abraham to be the Father of many nations, God has chosen us to be the Father of our Children also. This is not something we should take for granted our lightly. It’s honor God has chosen me to be a Father of two amazing boys, it’s a responsibility I take to heart.

These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Deuteronomy 6:6-7

Its our responsibility as Fathers and Men of God to teach our Children about God and his Word. We live in a world where God has been removed from public, schools, offices, ect. If we don’t teach our Children about God , nobody else is going to.  Lay the foundation for a successful life for them.

Children are a heritage from the LORD, offspring a reward from him. Psalms 127:3

The world likes to portray Fatherhood as a death trap, but the truth is to be a Father is a blessing from God. For Abraham waited almost 100 years to have his promised son Isaac, any man who has a child has received favor from God. Don’t squander your blessing, be the Godhead of your family as you were chosen to be.

Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it. Proverbs 22:6

As a Father its our responsibility not only to teach our children about God, but teach them right from wrong. Teach them how to walk with integrity, teach them responsibility, teach them love and compassion. When you instill morals and values into your Children they will not depart from it.

But as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD. Joshua 24:15

The world may have removed God but we as Fathers control our house. Make sure your house is serving God, make sure your Children are growing up knowing God and learning morals and values. Teach your Children how to pray and be thankful for all they have received.

As a Father I feel God has blessed me more than I could have ever imagined, I hope all you Fathers feel the same way and Thank God for your blessings in Jesus Name Amen
