Father's Day is a day to honor fathers for their proper character as Godly role models for their children. Let us not forget that the behavior we are called to and rewarded for today isn't a once a year thing. The honor is earned and the behavior needs to be year round. If you are like me, being that role model is not always easy and I seek forgiveness from my Father in Heaven for failing like the sinful man that I am. Every week, every day and every hour we are called to righteous goodly conduct not only towards our children but also before God. This serves a two-fold purpose. It sanctifies us with the work of the Spirit moving us one step closer to glorification in Christ Jesus. Secondly, it sears an indelible image in the minds and psyche of our children that becomes so much a part of what they are in their very nature, they would not know how to act without it. In this way our earthly fathers become us and we become like our earthly fathers. In this way our Heavenly Father becomes us and we become like the Heavenly Father. For it is written: Be ye holy for I am holy. Amen.
