While my wife was shopping years ago I decided to go to a small nearby airport and look at the small airplanes. I have always enjoyed just looking at or watching them take off and land. While there I noticed a man pushing a small plane out of a hanger and putting a for sale sign on it. I went over and talked to him. He said he needed to sell it so he could pay his daughter’s college tuition. He went on to say that he loved flying very much but he loved his daughter more and her education was more important.

No one really knows all the sacrifices or hardships that fathers go through for their families. When father’s take the responsibility of providing for, protecting and leading their families, (and not excluding or omitting God, Deuteronomy 4:9,10) what a beautiful thing it is, (Proverbs 20:7, Ephesians 6:1-4).

This Sunday will be Father’s Day, maybe we can give a little extra attention to fathers. A cup of coffee or his favorite breakfast is good, but a simple hug or a thank you could even be better. We might call them on the phone or get them a small gift. If they have passed on and left a beautiful memory, thank God for them. I personally enjoy and remember a little hug with a thank you more than a gift. See you in church next Sunday.
