Listen, children, to a father’s instruction, and be attentive, that you may gain insight.
Proverbs 4:1 NRSV
A man fully invested in being a father understands the sacred trust of life. A father models the unconditional love of God for his children, ensuring their spiritual inheritance for generations to come. A man who cherishes his children instructs them with insight. On this special day you honor the life of the man who formed and shaped you in the eternal wisdom of God.
God, I listen for your instruction. As I remember today the man who was my father, I give thanks for his wisdom and love. Amen.
The insight of a father is a glimpse into his soul.
