Happy Father’s Day to all the dads and granddads! As you know, today is very special to me because I have such a passion for fatherhood and for seeing men operate in the role that God has designed for them.
William Wordsworth said, “Father! – to God himself we cannot give a holier name.” How right he is. There is no more sacred or powerful office in the world than that of a father. Fathers shape societies, because as the family goes, so goes the society, and so goes the world. When we look back on history, the civilizations that flourished had strong multigenerational thinking and children were not so much taught as they were given examples to live by. Men lived and had their children walk with them through life. Men modeled what it meant to be a strong, honorable, upstanding person.
