When I was a boy of fourteen, my father was so ignorant I could hardly stand to have the old man around. But when I got to be twenty-one, I was astonished at how much the old man had learned in seven years.
Whether your father is still in this world or not, I hope you can make it a point to spend a moment honoring him or his memory, "so that you may live long and that it may go well with you," the first commandment with a promise. There are also many men who stand in the place of fathers throughout children's lives, for whatever reason, and I lift a toast to those good men as well. Our society needs good men.
Here's praying for many more. Happy Father's Day, Dad!
