A Father's Love

Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I have become sounding brass or a clanging cymbal. And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, but have not love, it profits me nothing.
Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
Love never fails. (1 Corinthians 13: 1-8)

As we are about to embark to a family reunion, I am reminded of the legacy a CHRISTian dad is to create and leave behind. It should be an eternal legacy of love, respect, selflessness and service. It should be a legacy that points toward our Lord and Savior, not us! I pray for myself and all fathers that we are simply challenged to do such, but equipped and obedient to follow through.

Spirit of God, move in me and through me and cause others, especially my family, to follow You!
