I had a conversation with a man named Bill Houghton, who was president of a large construction firm. Through the years, he had hired and managed thousands of employees, so I asked him, "When you hire an employee, what do you look for?"

He said, "I look primarily at the relationship between the man and his father. If he felt loved by his dad and respected his authority, he’s likely to be a good employee. I won’t hire a man who has been at odds with his father, because he will have difficulty with me, too. I have found that the relationship between a boy and his father sets the tone for the rest of that boy’s life."

(From a sermon by Gene Edwards, "In Search of the Blessing")
