Paraphrasing from the Christian Post, during colonial times, marriage and fatherhood were culturally viewed as being among the highest aspirations in a man's life. Though our cultural values certainly have shifted somewhat, we thank God for those husbands, fathers and grandfathers who take seriously the importance of their roles in the family and intentionally create opportunities to sow love, wisdom and faith into their children's lives.

And in celebration of Father's Day, here is our question for all of you: What is the best advice your father ever gave you? It only takes a moment to click here and leave a comment ... thanks!

A thought from the Word...

Joshua 24:15b
But as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord.
