Neckties, shirts, socks, shoes, grills, and even power tools were all given as gifts for Father’s Day. These items were given to show appreciation to dads across the country. Some children cooked breakfast. Some children cooked dinner or even cooked on the grill for their dad. No matter what was done to show dads how much they are appreciated, dads across America enjoyed their day.
Although we shower our earthly dads with gifts, we must show that same love to our Heavenly Father daily. He gave his only begotten Son so we would have eternal life. God loved us so much He gave us his ONLY son! Jesus died on the cross for you and me and we should show gratitude daily for Calvary.
We can show our love by reading and studying God’s word, praying, attending Church School, attending Bible Study, feeding the homeless, volunteering our time, and worshiping God. These are not just a list for us as adults, however these are actions we should share and engage our children with. Sitting as family and reading God’s word is the best family time spent together. Spend time talking to your family about Jesus going to Calvary’s Hill. This is the best gift you could give to your Father!
Dear Heavenly Father,
Happy Father’s Day! I am so glad you are my Father. God, when my earthly parents do not understand I can talk to You. I can come to You just I am and You will hear my cry and comfort my heart. My gift to You is to worship and adore You daily.
In Jesus Name,
