A righteous man who walks in his integrity – blessed are his sons after him!
Thought for the Day: God sends fathers
“Daddy, can you do the ‘Tickle Spider?’”, I hear as the time comes for our youngest to go to bed. “Why sure!” is the reply and the laughter begins. As time wains, I begin hearing scriptures being said with Mark saying a line and Jonathan repeating. Then I hear them saying “The Lord’s Prayer” together. As Mark talks to our oldest, Nathaniel, I hear the serious talk about the day followed by “The Lord’s Prayer” ending their conversation for the night. As a mother who has never been great at memorizing scripture, I hear the beautiful spoken word of my husband as he speaks words of faith with our two sons in a way that touches me deeply. What a great father this man of God is to his sons, and what a great devotion the boys feel toward him. God brought our family together where this man could share Jesus with all of us.
As I think about God and the way He loves us, I realize that my husband loves his boys in a special way. Our family is special because God is the Head of our family and my husband follows His heart to teach our family about God’s love. Together, God and Mark are a great team.
Prayer: God, thank You for loving us enough to send dads, special dads to teach us about Your love. Be with all dads on this day that they can see and recognize the love from their children. Amen.
