DADs…
there is no better time like the 
fourth of July 
to reflect upon the 
countless opportunities 
we are gifted in this country everyday!  

Opportunities presented because of the men and women 
who have gone before us 
and continue even as you read this…
fighting all over this world...protecting our freedoms.

In our freedoms...are many blessings God has given each of us…
often bringing personal success along the way. 
In our success however 
we can get lost in the moment.

As I sit and reflect this day…
I am reminded of the countless times 
I have missed the mark 
especially in the midst of achievement…
by giving glory to all others and forgetting 
the one who created it all. 

Too often I have celebrated 
my good fortune…
accepted and taken the recognition…
stood in the limelight, 
but failing to pause
and to give Glory to God.

In my receiving...I often forget to give. 
In the moment I forget to redirect 
the attention I receive from others…
in essence denying the credit 
our Heavenly Father so deserves 
and those around us need to hear!

As Paul exhorts in Philippians 2:11:
"and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord, 
to the glory of God the Father"

DADs…in the victories of today…
and even in our defeats along the way…
seize the platform God has given you…
and welcome each opportunity saying 
"to God be the glory” 
leaving no doubt 
whose glory you wave!

DADs…
“get in the game”…
Today is game day…
and so is every day…
God gives you! So…
C’mon men…
Suit Up!
