This is a question that is constantly been asked all over the world whenever the opportunity to celebrate the Father’s day presents itself. As we shared this today, may be you don’t even know your biological father, or you were single handed raised by your mother or others without having the feel of a father figure in your life or may be your experience was that of an absentee father figure or maybe you were even raised in a very stable family, I choose to share this week so we can stop the whatever cycle we may have found ourselves by a change in our attitude by making up our minds to be a father and feel in the gap for our children. You may be a woman reading this piece but you can apply these principles to raise your sons whether you are already married now or still single to be married in the future.
What is A Dad? – Author unknown
A Dad is someone who wants to catch you before you fall but instead picks you up, brushes you off and let you try again.
A Dad is someone who wants to keep you from making mistakes but let you find your own way even though his heart breaks in silence when you get hurt.
A Dad is someone who holds you when you cry, scolds you when you break the rules, shines with pride when you succeed, and has faith in you even when you fail.
A Father is “the source”. So God the Father is the Father of all fathers who enables all dads spiritually, emotionally, psychologically, mentally, physically and financially to perform their fatherly roles effectively and efficiently. Without Him we cannot perform these highlighted roles. Let’s share the wisdom of the Father so we can be good examples of love, faith, integrity, stewardship, loyalty and commitment par excellence to our children whether biologically or otherwise. Have a great week and Happy Father’s Day!
