Father's Day

There are no perfect fathers.  There is no special "fatherhood mojo" for leading families or raising kids.  Some of the godliest dads in the Bible raised some of the rottenest kids.  There are no perfect fathers.  Do you know what that means?  There is no one out there that we have to measure up to because they are doing it exactly right.  I’m not sure how you feel about that, but that is good news to me.  It takes off a lot of the performance pressure I feel as a father and husband.  In fact, the best example we have in Scripture of fatherhood is Jesus’ relationship with his heavenly Father.  Every other example falls far short.  So I would like to explore that relationship a little with the goal of getting to know our heavenly Father better and looking at some ways we earthly fathers can imitate him.
