Today is Father’s Day in many countries around the world.

Blessed are those who have an earthly father who loves them and cares for them or are fathers themselves who love their children and care for them.

However, not everyone has a loving and caring earthly father or is a loving and caring earthly father.

 

There are those who grew up without a father.

There are those whose earthly father left them.

There are those whose earthly father died.

There are those whose earthly father is abusive.

There are those whose earthly father hates them.

There are those whose earthly father mistreats them.

There are those who are fathers but lost their children.

 

I know that Father’s Day might be tough for you because it reminds you of your complicated relationship with your father or that you don’t have a father anymore or at all. I can feel with you because I have a complicated relationship with my earthly father.

 

But please don’t be discouraged. While not everyone can have the gift of a loving and caring earthly father in this world, we all have a loving and caring Father in Heaven who will never leave nor forsake us. Through His Son Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior we can even have an intimate fellowship with our Father in Heaven. This fellowship is not only with our Father in Heaven, but also with His Son Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit. Our Father in Heaven will always love us unconditionally even in our darkest moments and despite our sinful nature as long as we accept His gift of grace through His Son Jesus Christ who died for our sins on the cross so that the Father can forgive us our sins.

 

Have a blessed Father’s Day!

 

“Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long in the land that the Lord your God is giving you. Exodus 20:12

Hear, O sons, a father’s instruction, and be attentive, that you may gain insight, for I give you good precepts; do not forsake my teaching. Proverbs 4:1-2

My son, do not despise the Lord’s discipline or be weary of his reproof, for the Lord reproves him whom he loves, as a father the son in whom he delightsProverbs 3:11-12

And he arose and came to his father. But while he was still a long way off, his father saw him and felt compassion, and ran and embraced him and kissed him. Luke 15:20

The righteous who walks in his integrity – blessed are his children after him! Proverbs 20:7

For my father and my mother have forsaken me, but the Lord will take me in. Psalm 27:10

Be strong and courageous. Do not fear or be in dread of them, for it is the Lord your God who goes with you. He will not leave you or forsake you.” Deuteronomy 31:6

And call no man your father on earth, for you have one Father, who is in heaven. Matthew 23:9

See what kind of love the Father has given to us, that we should be called children of God; and so we are. The reason why the world does not know us is that it did not know him. 1 John 3:1

The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ and the love of God and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all. 2 Corinthians 13:14

 

“And when you pray, do not heap up empty phrases as the Gentiles do, for they think that they will be heard for their many words. Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him. Pray then like this:

“Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name.
10 Your kingdom come,
your will be done,
    on earth as it is in heaven.

Matthew 6:7-10
