Welcome to Faith Chapel, and Happy Father’s Day!
We pray you are blessed by every aspect of the service today and feel welcome among our family… because you are!
This morning, we have the great privilege of honoring Dad! There are many phrases and adjectives which have been used over the years to describe Fathers: strong, provider, mentor, coach, greatest Dad ever, etc. I wonder, though, how often do we hear the words “compassionate” or “tender” used by children to describe their Fathers?
This is exactly how David describes our heavenly Father in Psalm 103, verse 13 – “The Lord is like a father to his children, tender and compassionate to those who fear him.” At first glance, this may sound like weakness for a strong Father, but what an honor if our kids see us as tender and compassionate in the moments they fall short.
As a reward for making it to the end of this article, the first Dad to meet me at the front of the stage during announcements will receive a $15 Lowe’s Gift Card.
Happy Father’s Day!
