Let Fathers Celebrate Father’s Day the Only Way We Know How
By Gavin C. Lewis
Father’s Day holds so many different meanings for me, because I grew up without my father.
What I realized growing up and watching other families celebrate, is that there is no standard way to celebrate Father’s Day, unlike other holidays.
Father’s Day is rarely a day of relaxation for fathers, because we are still expected to get “things” done, and, honestly, that is fine.
As fathers, getting things done it is what we live to do.
Fathers live to take care of and protect their families and ensure that all of their needs are provided. So, what better way to celebrate Father’s Day than to allow us dads do what we love doing.
Watching my children run around and enjoy the day is more than enough of a Father’s Day gift for me. Psalm 127:3 says, “Children are a heritage from the Lord, offspring a reward from him.”
So, as fathers on Father’s Day, I ask that you enjoy the rewards that the Lord has given you – by watching them enjoy being in your presence. And, if that comes with a pair of socks or a not so favorable tie, just smile and remember that the Lord has provided you with the best gift you could ever have – your family.
