Lord, thank you for fathers and their special place in the life of the family. Grant that the fathers of our church and our nation shall learn and accept the unique role you have given to them. Give them the spiritual discernment to lead their children to know God as Father through faith in Thee. We pray that fathers will have the wisdom to express your truth in such a way that their home will be a heaven on earth because you are in it. Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
FOLLOWING GOD TO VBS
My dishes went unwashed today, I didn’t make the bed: I took God’s hand and followed him To VBS instead.
Oh, yes, we went adventuring The children and I Exploring the whole Bible For truths we can’t deny,
My house was sure neglected, I didn’t sweep the stairs In twenty years no one on earth Will know, or even care.
But that I’ve helped a boy or girl To noble adulthood grow, In twenty years the whole wide world May look, and see, and know.
