Today is Father’s Day.
Scrolling through Facebook, the posts of children of all ages posing with their fathers are saturating my newsfeed. I read several sentiments from my friends, commenting that they hope their sons grow up to be just like their dads.
Immediately I thought about our boys at The Shepherd Center.
One reason they are in our care is because they do not really have a father to look up to and imitate.
Well, yes they do. He just isn’t their biological father. He is their Heavenly Father.
At TSC, it is our responsibility to be used by our Father to love these boys, teaching them what they need to know, and serving as good examples. We want them to imitate Christ.
The hope we have is that they will grow up to be just like their Father. That they will become men after God’s own heart. That they will break the cycle and be good, Godly examples to their own children some day.
Follow my example as I follow the example of Christ. I Corinthians 11:1
