DADs…several months ago, I was watching a NASCAR race on TV. 
After numerous cautions throughout the race it looked like there would be a clear winner. 
One driver had what seemed to be a sure victory as he extended his lead over the other drivers in the final laps.
 
Suddenly on the final turn something happened, not slowing down the leader took the curve too wide and crashed into the wall allowing another driver to edge him out of the first-place finish.
 
DADs, how often have you been so close to a finish line in your life, a deadline at work, vacation plans for family, or great intentions to complete a task at home? But for some reason we find ourselves distracted and just like the NASCAR driver we take things a little too fast and causing us to fall short of the goal?
 
So DADs hear the good news!

Romans 3:23
For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.
 
The question is then, knowing that we will sometimes fall short of the finish will we have the humility to ask God to help us through today’s curves we may face? 

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

DADs, do you know that no matter what position or row that you start from that you can still win the race in NASCAR?
 
I have become a huge NASCAR fan over the past few weeks and like all real NASCAR fans l have my favorite drivers. 
 
What I have learned very quickly is that although it is usually better to start the race closer to the front, starting position does not always determine how you finish!
 
And because it is a long race, leading many laps does not always mean victory either, because once again, it is a race of strategy and endurance.
If a driver can persevere he can not only finish in the top ten, he can actually win it from the back and take the checkered flag!
 
DADs, much like a NASCAR race, where we start in life or what our current life circumstances are does not have to define our final outcome!
 
James 1:25
"But the one who looks intently into the perfect law of freedom and perseveresin it, 
and is not a forgetful hearer but a doerwho acts—this person will be blessed in what he does."
 
Life is not what happens to us, it is how we react to it!
Remember its not always how you start it's how you choose to finish! 
DADs, do not diminish the finish!

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

DADs,
I was watching a NASCAR race on TV and after 400 hundred miles one of the drivers that had the lead on the last lap ran out of gas on the final lap allowing another to pass him for the victory.
 
Now being a fairly new fan of racing I am still learning the strategies of the race. What I am finding out is that there are many adjustments to each drivers original start plan throughout the race.
 
Depending on how each driver handles different circumstances he or she encounters during a race will often determine the final outcome.  
 
Many times the drivers that are able to finish and even win are the ones that take heed to listen to the instructions they are given by their crew chief throughout the day.
 
Deuteronomy 7:12
"If you listento and are careful to keep these ordinances, the LORD 
your God will keep His covenant loyalty with you, as He swore to your fathers.
 
What is it your crew chief, your heavenly father, trying to tell you today?
Will you take heed, or will you run out of gas not able to finish the race?

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

BE THE DAD TODAY!
