With Father’s Day just around the corner, I got to thinking how important a fathers are.
The questions are coming up more often about the need of fathers in a home. The leading newspapers in the world are questioning that. The New York Times, and many others challenge the need for fathers in the home.
I didn’t have a father in my life. He was in my home town and never saw me much.
What did I miss?
A boy needs his father to be an example for him. A boy needs a dad to tell him, “Way to go champ.” A boy needs his father to have someone to talk about boy things.
The majority of the hardened criminals in the penitentiaries didn’t have a father.
How about a little girl?
They need to know how to choose a man. Girls without a father in the home tend to more sexually active in an earlier age.
In both girls and boys need a sense of security and love.
So how do we help these children?
There are uncles, grandfathers, even friends, who need to step up to the plate and help these children.
In my teaching career the amount of broken homes kept growing every year, until over half of my students only had one parent.
So in reality, I became father to them. They would cling, and want to be near me during class time. I had to discourage this as much as I could, but I did a lot of hugging.
How is your home going?
Are you divorced? Are you the only parent in your home?
I really understand. I was divorced once myself. However, I did everything in my power to love my children, and spend as much time with them as I could.
I have remarried and my children love her very much. They call her their second mom.
Don’t let the past decide your future. Yes, you have so much work ahead of you, but you can do it!!
How? God is there to be your guiding light. Also, use Jesus as an example of how you should act and respond.
It won’t be easy, but who is more important in your life than your own children?
You are never alone.
You are never forsaken.
You are never unloved.
And above all…never, ever, give up!
