A Fathers Legacy

23 Aug

A Fathers Legacy….

A study of men who were in therapy found that 23% of them had physically absent fathers, 29% had psychologically absent fathers, 18% had disapproving fathers, 15% had dangerous fathers, and only 15% had fathers who were nurturing. Thus 85% of the men had bad relationships with their fathers!

Other studies have shown over and over again, that one of the most central causes of crime and social problems is the lack of a father. If you’re a father, take this to heart. Fatherhood is one of the most important ministries on earth. Treat it as such. If you’ve had a tough time with your father, and he’s still alive, forgive and bless him.

You can change that relationship. And above all, no matter what kind of relationship you had or didn’t have with your father. Remember you ultimately have another Father – a Father who is never absent, never abusive, never anything less than loving.

No matter what your past has been, you have the way to overcome it. Discover the Perfect and Loving Heavenly Father you now have, and you’ll become the perfect beloved child you were always meant to be.

For this reason I kneel before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth derives its name. I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen. Ephesians 3:14-21

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
