Honoring Fathers

 Children hear our words, but they see our lives.  It’s this time of year that we set a time aside to honor our fathers.  A faithful father imparts not only words, but also his life.  May I encourage our fathers to not only live but invest your lives in your children. 

Children are always in a learning process.  They’re going to learn from someone.  Let it be a good example.  Children learn a proper set of values from Dad.  They learn what’s important from Dad.

The reason many children never learn the value of spiritual things is because it just wasn’t important to Dad.  For a father to say one thing and do another causes confusion in the child because they are inclined to be like us!

 Children discover their attitude about work from their fathers.  A poll was taken a while back asking men about job satisfaction.  It was interesting to note that 85 percent said they were not satisfied and some said they hated and despised their employment.

Show me a father who hates work and I’ll show you some sons who won’t know how to work.

The Texas State Police offered a bulletin on how to raise a juvenile delinquent.  Number 1 on the list was “give him what he wants.”  This young generation in America has been given too much and when Dad can’t many expect the government can.

Dad, God bless you this Father’s Day for your faithfulness.  You will be rewarded one day for all your labor.  We, in this nation, will be rewarded because you raised strong, responsible citizens.

See ya Sunday!
