Next Sunday will be father’s day and it is believed to have started on June 13, 1910 to honor and commemorate fathers and male parenting. Fathers can be known by other names like dad, papa, daddy or pop. I think to fully understand the role of father and the family unit we need to look in the Bible. Just as God created marriage between one man and one woman, (Genesis 2:24) He also had the family in mind. (Genesis 4:1&2). God created the family unit to have a father, mother and the children, (Genesis 5:1-5). God also created the father with a special kind of love for his wife, (Genesis 24:67) and children, just as God created the mother with a special kind of love for her husband and her children, (Ephesians 5:22-33). Man is made in the image of God but many times we fall short of what God wants us to be, (Romans 3:23). God has a very special love for us, (John 3:16, Romans 5:8) and that can be seen when fathers do what they should do, (Hosea 11:1-4). If things keep going on in America, fathers and the family unit may become extinct. Yes, dad’s are not perfect but we can respect or try to respect them and God put them in our lives and we would not be here if it were not for them, (Ephesians 6:1-4,. This Sunday let us remember fathers. See you in Church next Sunday.
