One of the things I’ve witnessed during my lifetime, is the importance of a loving father and mother in the home. Both spectrums provide a mental balance to their offspring and help create a positive environment for them to thrive in maturity. Our culture has portrayed a stay at home mother as a person being less relevant than a career mother. Our culture has also accepted fathers not being responsible for their children whether it’s financially, physically, mentally or spiritually. There may be a law on the books for being financially responsible but our society doesn’t give much kudos to those that do.
Today is Father’s Day and there is a movement to have it banned because it’s “not inclusive”. When I consider the male, youth violence that has sprung up so recently in our society, I attribute it to the manifestations of the broken families with in our society. One of the common denominators of these mass shooters rampaging through schools is a broken or non-existent relationship between them and their father. Gangs are males replacing the need for their father with other males.
One of the few times I’ve read the word “hate” in the Bible, was when it says, “God hates divorce”.
To all the fathers out there, that have loved their off-spring and committed themselves to them by placing their needs ahead of your wants, happy father’s day.
