Blessings of Fatherhood
Doughnuts with Dads and the Blessings of Fatherhood
This Wednesday morning, February 7, the fathers of the children at The Family of Faith Preschool are invited to join their children in enjoying a doughnut together at school.
While this is a fun and delicious activity, being a father is more involved than just eating a doughnut. The Bible has a very high regard for the calling of parents. There is even a commandment (the fourth) that is dedicated to honoring one’s father and mother.
The Bible records numerous father-child relationships: Abraham and Isaac, Jacob and Joseph, David and Solomon are but a few examples.
But there is no greater father-child relationship than the one shared between God-the-Father and God-the-Son. This Sunday we will read Mark 9:7, where the Father says of His Son, Jesus, “This is my beloved Son; listen to him.”
May the unconditional love shared between the Father and the Son be likewise shared between the fathers and their children at The Family of Faith Preschool.
