Father’s Day

Father’s Day is coming this week. Here are some penetrating suggestions and observations.

1. Presents instead of Presence – we are tempted to give material things instead of giving ourselves and personal involvement. Children spell love and caring T-I-M-E. Nothing takes the place of a father who is involved with their children.

2. Lecturing instead of listening and learning. Children are not employees; you are respected at work due to position but at home respect is earned over time.

3. Demanding perfection above excellence – we tend to set expectation very high with results out of reach. Children want to please their parents.

4. Cultivating the secular over the spiritual – your wife and children long for you to set the spiritual culture of the family. Help your family know you love God and desire to honor Him.

The greatest gifts a father can give to his children are:

Love God and their Mother with all your heart. Father and Mother are on the same team. God Bless You and Your Family.
