Well Father’s Day has come and gone and I pray yours was a day of positive recognition.
As you know, leading up to Fathers Day, many store promotions are ramped up and
geared towards catering to meeting every stereotypical dad dreams!
One clothing ad I read asked the question…What type is your dad?
Their three categories were:
- casual dad
- cool dad
- business dad
I am not sure my kids would use any of those three descriptions for me!
How about your kids?
Recently I watched a movie that I really wouldn't recommend, however, there was one line in the whole movie making it worthwhile…that should be music to dads everywhere!
It was a line from a teenage babysitter telling the dad of this particular family, as he was driving her home, that of "all the families she babysits, his were the only kids she has
to fight to go to bed, because they want to stay up to see their dad!"
Don’t we want to all be that type of dad?
Well that doesn’t just happen because we are the father. It happens because we are the dad!
A DAD that is Daily Active and Devoted!
There may be times requiring us to be the casual dad, the cool dad, or the business dad, but unless we are Daily consistent, an Active contributor, and Devoted to our children, we will never be the “type” of DAD our kids really need!
“Get in the game”…
today is game day…
and so is every day…
God gives you!
So…C’mon men…Suit Up!
