Fatherhood

One of the most compelling and comprehensive Bible stories about true Fatherhood is commonly called "The Prodigal Son." In this thought-boggling story, a father expresses such unconditional and eternal love for his two wayward sons — one who leaves home only to lose everything of value, the other who stays home only to lose everything of value: their perspective, vision, and purpose as sons of God. With each reading of this story, we are reminded that the source of this love is — can only be — God. Fathering demands the strength of Samson, the courage of David, the persistence of Jacob, the tenderness of Joseph…in effect, the unchanging love of God to inspire, guide, guard, and govern each and every father in his "parenting" journey.
