Being a dad is the third most important thing you can do on this earth! The first is to love the Lord God with all your heart, soul, mind, and strength—and the second is to love your bride as Christ loved the church. Loving, encouraging, pouring into, and discipling your kids is next on the list of priorities—and it is one of the most difficult tasks and rewarding opportunities that we have!
Your life can reach into the next hundred years—through your children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and even, your great-great-grandchildren. So, enjoy this Father’s Day and remember that your life is touching your family.
If you want a real-life example, please listen to our radio show, Solid Steps, this weekend on WFIA (Saturday at 10 AM and again Sunday at 12 noon). You also will be able to listen to the podcast on Monday by going to the Further Still Ministries website.
Here is one dad who followed Christ and changed his whole family—his marriage, his kids, and now his grandkids–Jim Russell with his three sons Chad, Kevin, and Troy.
