In approaching the Creator of the universe, our Lord Jesus Christ teaches us this:
After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen. (Matthew 6:9-13 KJV)
Brian Fisher writes in a Fox News op-ed, “As we approach Father’s Day once again, more and more men are realizing the impact abortion has not only had on women, but also on themselves. And the impact is anything but positive.” He says of men who have encouraged or facilitated abortions to avoid raising a child, “In our heart of hearts, we are coming to grips with what we’re doing. We are willfully taking the lives of those we are wired to protect.”
In his book REDEEMING A FATHER’S HEART, Kevin Burke ministers to fathers who have aborted children. Let the healing begin for hurting dads.
Finally, Psalm 127 teaches us that “children are a gift from God.” Parents are a gift from God too; remember we were once human children; and by grace we can all become Children of God through Jesus Christ.
So today and always let’s honor our Heavenly Father and thank God for Fathers’ Day. And in some small way, let us honor our human fathers every day.
