Being a Dad

I was thinking about the destruction of the family and how it affects so many things. The biggest loser on TV and movies is Dad. In the 80’s and 90’s he always had to be bailed out by his wife. Now he has to be bailed out by his children. (Ironic since so many children run the home.)

Anyway, I wanted to say to you Dads and future Dads that your role is one of great importance. Your children, and/or future child will look to you for protection and leadership. You cannot fail them. You are playing a vital role in the forming of their personality and their identity as an individual. Don’t fall prey to the media as they do their best to make the Dads appear to be so inept. We have to have Dads who will be leaders and be willing to make sacrifices to raise their child. Be proud to be a Dad/Future Dad. You have a high calling and a huge responsibility.

"The Bible calls debt a curse and children a blessing. But in our culture we apply for a curse and reject blessings. Something is wrong with this picture."-- Doug Phillips
