Maybe your Father wasn’t great. But you can be. Your Father or father figure, made you who you are. Wether he was a good dad or a bad one, you are you because of his influence. In life we can play the blame game as to why we are the way we are, our temperament, our attitudes, our life situations. Maybe you didn’t deserve to be treated the way you were and you don’t deserve it now. But it’s not your parents who are treating you badly now, it’s you! You have to change yourself by taking responsibility for who you are now. Your childhood may not have been your choice but your adulthood can be your choice. You can be the Fatherly example that God is communicating to us today to be. If you struggle with a lack of any of these character traits then today is the day to start working on one of them or all of them.
