Yesterday was Fathers’ Day here in NZ. I’ve been thinking about the hugely significant role of Fathers ….. especially as we head towards our national elections in a few weeks time. There is no doubt that there has been an erosion of the family over time. Dads are depicted as the ‘geeky’ guy who needs his wife and kids to ‘show him how it’s done’. Like the proverbial frog in the pot ….. we’ve become used to the roles being reversed and in many cases totally abdicated. But being a father is a God given authority. Nothing can change that. We are in serious trouble because we’re not doing things God’s way. Men ….. we need you to be strong and take your place as leaders. You are highly valued!
