“Children, obey your parents in the Lord: for this is right. Honour thy father and mother; (which is the first commandment with promise;) that it may be well with thee, and thou mayest live long on the earth. And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.” Ephesians 6:1-4 (KJV)
Remember your earthly father today. It is Father’s Day. Even more remember him, honor him every day. Children it begins with being obedient to the instructions, and direction he gives you.
Fathers be sure to be an encouragement and blessing to your children. If you constantly berate, belittle, and criticize them you will drive them away. Nurture them in the love of the LORD. With the same grace you have received be gracious to your children.
Happy Father’s Day.
-Tim A. Blankenship
