There is this famous television show in the United States, which talks about teenage pregnancy and how a lot of the babies have no dads. While some of them know who their fathers are, they don’t necessarily live with them nor get any support.
“A man can be a father, but it takes someone special to be a dad.”- Anne Geddes
True enough. The main father figure everyone has is the God. He sacrificed his only son, Jesus, for the sins of the people. A father should always be there for his children, to listen to them, to provide for them and to give them love. A father should not show hatred towards his wife nor arrogance towards his neighbor. He should be a role model to his children.
A lot of people have trust issues with their fathers, which reflect on their current relationships. Many cannot communicate well, or love unconditionally. If you have an absentee father, look at God and make him your Father, and if you are a father, love your children and their mothers unconditionally before it’s too late.
“My father didn’t tell me how to live; he lived and he let me watch him do it” – Clarence Budington Kelland
