Father's Day should be a day that we also look at God Our Father and appreciate what He has given us, and how he as a loving Father wants us to love Him as we want our children to love us as well.

In September our four year old son Kienan (3 at that time) was abducted from our home while we were sleeping.  The feeling of our son being taken away in his sleep was extremely hard to take.  Trusting in God that he will give us the strength to do what is right is all we had, and in that trust, he rewarded us with the blessing of our son’s return four days later.

My wife Tammy reflects our Pain to our over whelming joy of our son’s return, by this statement. “For us as human parents can hurt so much to have our child pulled away from us than feel the debilitating joy of his return; how much more does God rejoice when his lost children are returned to his loving grace?”.

On Father’s Day please take the time to hold your children, love your wife and thank God for every gift that He gives us. Remember the lost, your neighbour, your coworkers and your friends, and share with them the Agape Love that God has for us all, and that he too wants them to come back from the thief in the night and hold them close.

For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life (John 3:16), but my favourite is next: “For God did not send His Son into the world to Condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved” (John 3:17). That God loves us so much that He would sacrifice so much for us, and all we need to do is accept Him and love Him.  Now that’s a Father.
