6 These commandments that I give you today are to be upon your hearts.
7 Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.
8 Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads.
9 Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates. Deuteronomy 6:6-9 (NIV)
It seems that western society, especially here in America is attempting to make a mockery out of what manhood should be.
Father’s Day is continually being down sized as if manhood doesn’t have significant value any longer.
Recently, I came across a video that is celebrating “single mothers” on Father’s Day.
Yes, single mothers have taken on a durable role. But despite the fact that there is no male present in the lives of a number of children, a woman can never be a father. It was never God’s intention for the family to be in the shape that it is today. But we have only ourselves to blame for these circumstances.
Nevertheless, even though a person may not have a biological father in his or her life, God is and always will be there for anyone who believes in His existence (some don’t believe that there is a God).
The fifth Commandment is very clear when it says to honor thy father and mother…
At this very moment, in our society, men are being redefined by those who believe they have a greater power and understanding than God to decide what a man should be and the role he should now take on in the world and within his own home.
Then God said, “Let us make man in our image, in our likeness, and let them rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air, over the livestock, over all the earth, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.” Genesis 1:26
As we acknowledge the men in our lives on Father’s Day, I know that there is a relationship that bears us a perfect example of a perfect love and a perfect union.
That would be God the Father and Jesus Christ the Beloved Son.
Let’s honor the men in our lives with reverence, respect and love.
We should never forget the Father for He is always present with us all.
I and my Father are one. John 10:30
