Yesterday was the day Americans set aside to honor all of its fathers. The day when men receive their breakfasts in bed; are allowed to sleep in and better yet, they are relieved from “lawn duty”. Yes, fathers can catch a break.
However, our heavenly father never takes a break. The Psalmist tells us that He never slumbers nor sleeps (Psalms 121:3-4 ). His watchful eye is ever on us.
Often we think of mothers being the one who watches over their children, at all hours of the day or night. They are the ones with the attentive ear and eye; but they inherited that from their heavenly father.
Some earthly fathers fail to provide for their children, for various reasons; but God promises and does provide for all of our needs according to His riches in glory, by Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:19).
Some earthly fathers desert their wives and children; but God promises never to leave or to forsake us (Hebrews 13:5).
Unfortunately, some fathers abuse their wives and children; but God says that He will not harm, even a bruised reed/stalk or a smoking flax, which is a plant fiber, used to make clothing in bible times (Isaiah 42:3).
Yes, on Sunday Americans honored the fathers in their country; I believe that we each need to learn to honor our heavenly father every day; for in Him we live and move and have our very existence (Acts 17:48).
