Blessing our fathers

Published 4:07 pm Wednesday, June 7, 2023

As we look forward to Father’s Day this month, I’d like to wish Happy Father’s Day to men whose lives I’ve observed, some from a distance, and some up close.

I’ve seen fathers work 40+ hours per week and still show up to volunteer at school, church, and in the community. May their diligent example echo for generations to come and urge many others into lives of service.

There are dads who have the wisdom to draw boundary lines for their children and the courage to maintain those boundaries. Remember that the best guards are placed around the most valuable treasures. May they be strengthened in their God-ordained positions.

Some men, for a season, or for a lifetime, have found room in their hearts and in their homes to care for someone else’s child. May they reap bountifully from their giving.

To the fathers who are waiting for their prodigals to come home, or for those whose child has preceded them to our Heavenly home, may you continually experience God’s comfort
