A Challenge for Fathers

Happy Father's Day!

And below is a devotion from Love Worth Finding Ministries
for Father's Day.
“Her husband is known in the gates,
when he sitteth among the elders.”
Proverbs 31:23

Once a year, we celebrate fathers. Maybe you are one.
Let me give you a challenge. One father said,

“If I had it to do all over again.
I’d love my wife more in front of my children.
I’d laugh with my children more.
I’d listen more, even to the youngest child.
I’d be more honest about my own weaknesses
and stop pretending perfection.
I would pray differently for my children.
I would be more encouraging and bestow more praise.
And finally, if I had it to do all over again,
I would use every ordinary thing that happened
in every ordinary day to point them to God.”

Praise God for the impact of godly fathers in our lives!
