This Sunday is Father's Day. I am looking forward to spending the time with my wife and two children. Last Sunday as I was preaching, I made the statement that "The Lord is a much better parent than I will ever be." No sooner did I finish saying that and I hear my son say "Amen." The entire church was laughing for quite awhile.
The truth is that the Lord is a much better parent than we will ever be. Perhaps you struggle with Father's Day because your earthly father wasn't around or was abusive. My dear friend, please allow the Lord to be your father. He will never let you down and will always look out for you. On Sunday we will all contact our earthly father and express thanksgiving. Make sure you contact your heavenly Father and express just how thankful you are for all that He has done for you in Christ Jesus.
