On this the eve of Father’s Day I am thinking about my father Posted on June 18, 2017Leave a comment

On this the eve of Father’s Day I am thinking about my father. He wasn’t a man much given to words. I can’t remember him ever sitting me down to impart a spiritual truth or an important life lesson yet almost everything I know of life and godliness I learned from him. Not from what he said but how he lived his life. In the last years of his life I talked to him every week by telephone. He always ended every conversation the same way. “Son,” he would say, “I’m praying for you. I’m praying the Lord will bless your ministry and supply all your needs. I’m also praying He will keep you from getting the big head!”
He’s been gone more than 10 years now and hardly a day goes by that I don’t think of him. I love you Dad and I thank you for the godly heritage that is mine.
