MY DADDY IS HERE!


David Elkind, a psychologist, tells the story of visiting his middle son's nursery school class, at the request of his teacher. She wanted him to observe a "problem child" in the class.


While he was there, he caught a conversation between his son and some other boys. There conversation went like this.


Child A: "My daddy is a doctor and he makes lots of money and we have a swimming pool."


Child B: "My daddy is a lawyer and he flies to Washington and talks to the president."


Child C: "My daddy owns a company and we have our own airplane."


Then David Elkind's boy said, "My daddy is here!" And he proudly looked in his father's direction. (James S. Hewett, Illustrations Unlimited, p.197)


Dads, your presence means more than anything else to your children - more than your money, more than your position at work, more than the toys you buy them. Your time means more to them than anything else, because it says, "I care."


(From a sermon by C. Philip Green, Loving Leadership, 6/17/2010)
