Father’s Day

I have been absent…again!  I will not make excuses this time even though I could.  I have had ups and downs and everything in between over the last few months.  However, I want to focus on the ups.  So my return blog will be on Father’s Day.

Did you know that Christian Scriptures actually say you are not to call anyone on this earth Father?

Ouch.  Yes, you read that sentence right.

Look at this:

Matthew 23:9 (KJV)
9  And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven.

Yet, Christians all over the world celebrate Father’s Day by honoring their earthly father.  So how do we reconcile this earthly holiday with scripture?  This is what my family did for Father’s Day this year; we spent the whole day in prayer, thanking our Heavenly Father for all HIS blessings in our lives.  This is just one small step in honoring God over man.

What are we thankful for?  Here is our top three items of thanksgiving right now.

1. We have been saved, both from a spiritual death and an earthly death.

2. We have our health.

3. We have a future.

So what are you thankful for?  I’d love to hear your comments!
