Many of us have heard the saying, “Any man can be a father. It takes someone special to be a dad”. ~Author Unknown
As we celebrate Father’s Day this year, we examine what it really means to be a dad versus a father. A dad is that person who has one of the greatest opportunities to be a child’s very first influencer, second only to the natural bond that exists between mother and child. A dad is usually the first male figure that a daughter comes to love and in many cases ends up modeling future male relationships by or against.
Elizabeth Weiss McGolerick of www.sheknows.com puts it this way, “daughters will see what their dads believe about women by how they value and respect women, or by how they fail to do so”. And Charles F Kettering says, “Every father should remember that one day his son will follow his example instead of his advice”. The best gift that a father can give to his child is the gift of his time.
What’s your best father’s day gifts to your Dad and how has your dad or other father figures influenced your life?
Today, WedlockGist honors and celebrates all the wonderful and ever-present fathers who fit the description of a ‘dad’. Keep up the important work of laying a firm foundation for your children. May God, the father of all fathers continue to give you a father’s heart.
This delightful video below shows how special dads can be to their kids!
