With Father's Day this weekend, I have been reflecting upon my relationship with my dad. Like so many young children, I viewed my dad as god-like. My dad was the biggest, the strongest, and always stood for what was right. In my eyes he could do no wrong. Until, one day I started to see my dad as a man with flaws and not as a god.
For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God. (Romans 3:23)
From that point I was no longer a child striving to be perfect like his dad. I was becoming a man, having been created in the image and likeness of God. And now I know that God will hold me accountable for all my actions.
As the years pass, I become less dependant on my dad and completely dependant on my Heavenly Father for all things. Today I am thankful for a dad that has such a strong faith in God and in Jesus Christ, who on a daily basis bestowes godly morals and values with in me. Thank you dad.
