Commentary By: Gordon King
Another year gone by and the sun still shines bright. Our daily lives are more often than not hurried and busy with tasks and chores. We don’t always have the time to spend with our fathers. The time to honor and cherish them as we should.
There are those who may not have had a good relationship with their fathers. Yet, scripture tells us to honor them. This is a commandment from God. We need to forgive them for whatever heartache they may have caused, and replace it with love and honor.
There are those who may have lost their father such as myself. Yet, we can still honor them by remembering the times that we spent with them. Remembering the good times and giving thanks to God.
And there are those who may have never known their earthly father, yet, if they are a Christian they should honor their Father in heaven.
Take the time to honor your father. Give thanks to the Lord for giving you an earthly father. If possible, spend time with him, thank him, and tell him that you love him. Show him that you honor him.
We should all honor our earthly fathers, and at the same time we should honor our Father in heaven. For He has given us life, breathe, and all that we have.
God bless my friends! Happy Father’s Day!
