Father's Day

by Armstrong Williams - June 17, 2007 - Townhall.com

In our world today, we are faced with many male role model figures who govern our country, our religion, or our family. All of these men have in some way influenced our beliefs and lives, may it be the laws and rules they create, or the strength with which they lead our families. As we celebrate Father's Day and the men that have played a role in our lives, we should also reflect upon the Heavenly Father and His work in this world.

When we think of the Almighty father, we think of the omnipotent God. For Christians, He is not only the driving factor of the religion and world, but the Father who is prayed to for thanks, forgiveness, needs, and more. Because of God's supremacy, many people often do not identify Him as a compassionate, loving, and forgiving Father. Instead they see Him as a discipliner, of whom we must fear and regard with reverence. This Father's Day try praying to Him as if you were speaking to your own earthly father.


This is good advice. Pray for thanks and forgiveness. With all the problems we have in the world . . . optimism is the best advice for all of us. Life is good. We just have to remember that and not let the drumbeat of negativism sway us. God bless all father's on this day. Thank you for how hard you try to make your children's lives better.
