"Happy Father’s Day!"

Posted on June 13, 2018

It takes a tough man to be a “gentle” father.

 

Did you know that an NBC poll taken in the U.S. discovered that by the time a child is 6 years old, he or she will have spent more time watching TV than they will spend talking with their fathers during their entire lives.

 

Did you know that a follow up study indicated that, on the average, Dads spend around 38 seconds a day talking to their children.

 

Did you know that from the Institute for Mental Health, Dr. Walter Mischel and others have found from the cross-cultural studies they conducted that “poverty is not as important a factor in juvenile delinquency as the absence of a competent and loving father.”

 

Did you know Billy Graham said, “A good father is one of the most unsung, unpraised, unnoticed, and yet one of the most valuable assets in our society.”

 

Did you know that dads are absolutely critical for a life, family, and society to function in a healthy and sustaining manner!

 

Did you know that every day 299,000 men, without any training or instruction, become first-time fathers. Now anyone can be a father, but it takes a special, faithful man to be a dad. 

 

And dads, guess what - God is for us in the high and awesome calling to be ... dads.

 

More Sunday!
