E-votional - Father's
"Honor your Mother
- Exodus 20:1-17
The day we recognize the daddy's. Birth fathers, surrogate fathers
and folks that helped you grow up like a father, they are all to be
remembered and honored. It is the father(s) in your life that wade
through the mucky waters of your growing up, maturing and struggle for
independence. They are there as you experience growing pains, but
also the joys and celebrations of that very growth. Father's Day.
Hear the Good News, as your father(s) is
present in your growth, there is another Father who is always with you.
This, your heavenly Father, offers you strength, courage, wisdom and
direction all of your days. Sure, yesterday was Father's Day, but
should not every day be Father's Day? A day of thanks and
appreciation for the way both your earthly father and your Heavenly
Father has been there for you? Give thanks.
you Father for the direction and upbringing You have offered to me.
In my youth and immaturity I have at times rejected Your direction, yet
You still loved me and received me. Help me to be the parent that
receives my children, that builds up, loves and supports.
Let me offer all that You have offered to me, Your child. Thank You
Father, for all You have
done and all You will continue to do in my life. Amen.
