I hope all the Dads had a lovely Fathers Day yesterday. Your role is so important ….. and you are greatly valued and appreciated. You carry a legacy that goes beyond your own children. It continues down through the generations ….. but it also influences those around you. Some of you haven’t had great role models ….. but I encourage you to get to know the Father of all Fathers! He knows what it’s like to be rejected. He knows what it’s like to have rebellious kids. He knows what it’s like to be tempted to take the easy way out. But He continued to choose to love and to do what’s right in every situation. And He will help you if you let Him. While you carry your offspring ….. He carries you on His shoulders!
“Listen to me, O house of Jacob, all you who remain of the house of Israel, you whom I have upheld since you were conceived, and have carried since your birth.
Even to your old age and gray hairs I am he, I am he who will sustain you. I have made you and I will carry you; I will sustain you and I will rescue you”
Isaiah 46: 3-4
