Words to Ponder, Father’s Day edition

There is only one perfect Father in the universe, but as such He sets the pace for the rest of us less-than-perfect fathers. I discovered early in my ministry that my children were not impressed with books I wrote, titles I had, or places I spoke. They craved my time and attention, the provision for basic needs, a love that patiently forgave, and the creation of a safe place for them to grow and mature. It’s a short but very profound list of fatherly duties… Thank You, God, for being our Father, Shepherd, Guardian, and Guide. We will never outgrow our need for Your love and care. We want to seek You with all our heart that we might know You intimately.

(From Joe Stowell in today’s Our Daily Bread)
