Fathers Day

Previous Next

Father’s Day is this coming Sunday and the stores and malls are full of ideas on what we can offer our fathers as a gift to thank them and remember what they have done. For some, the memories of their father

are painful, but many of us remember an event or a gesture of their father that would reflect the love that they had for us.
Can you think of some of the qualities of your own fathers? What legacy may they have given you? We also have a Father in heaven, one who loves us unconditionally and desires to have a relationship with us. Jesus called his Father “Abba” which translates into “Daddy”. What an intimate relationship they had. What qualities of God the Father come to mind as you remember Him?

I wish everyone who has ever been a father to anyone,
a happy and blessed Father’s Day.
God, bless all the fathers in the world.
Guide them to be good role models
and love to all their children.
Help them to be a father like You are.
Give them grace and patience
to handle situations in a loving way.
Amen!
