Since we celebrate Father’s Day in June, I thought I’d write my tale of three fathers for Your Child’s Journey and First Steps bulletins.
The Message Bible translates Paul’s comment in 1 Corinthians 4:15, “There are a lot of people around who can’t wait to tell you what you’ve done wrong, but there aren’t many fathers willing to take the time and effort to help you grow up.”
That describes well the three fathers I have in mind to tell about. These three fathers willingly took the time and effort to help their children grow up well.
The first of these three fathers is my own father. He is father to four girls and two boys. I am the first of his children.
