Father’s Day Message
“How great is the love the Father has
lavished on us,
that we should be called children of
(1 John 3:1)
Our Father in heaven thinks about us even when we
are not thinking about Him. He is constantly present to us and constantly
responds to our needs. Our earthly fathers also find joy in giving to their
children. That's because a chief role of fatherhood is to provide. On Father’s
Day let us remember that we have been given a heritage of dedication and
faithfulness from our God, our heavenly Father, who helps our fathers on earth
teach their children with love and blesses them with the courage to accept this
role with its many demands and responsibilities.
