Scripture Lesson: Ephesians 6:1-4
On this date in 2004, on Fathers’ Day with his dad in attendance,
34-year-old Ken Griffey Jr. blasted a 6th inning fastball over the
right field wall at Busch Stadium for his 500th career home run. The
Cincinnati center fielder became the 20th Major Leaguer to reach the
milestone, and the sixth youngest.
We are called to honor our father and mother. Similarly, Paul
instructs fathers not to exasperate their children but to bring them up in the
training and instruction of the Lord. Some of the greatest lessons I have
learned came from my dad. Not only did he set a Christian example for me, but I
was amazed at how smart my dad got when I graduated college. The first memories
I have concerning baseball are with my dad. I have tried to pass along to my
son not only a love of the Lord but also a love of the game. Today, take the
opportunity to thank your dad for all he has done for you.
a lesson you have learned from your dad?
we honor our parents?
God today for dads who do it right.
Take the time to build a memory today with your dad. If you have
children, also build a memory with them.
