INTRODUCTION

The Lord wants us to honour our fathers and mothers and He has promised to bless our lives when we do that. We live in a generation that considers it fashionable to dishonour their parents. But the Lord wants His people to be grateful and appreciative of their parents and give them the honour due to them. A godly father is a great blessing and a priceless treasure. We must be deeply grateful to the Lord for the blessing of a godly father.

THE MESSAGE

FATHERS DAY THOUGHTS: THE TENFOLD BLESSING OF A FATHER

**********************************************************

1. A FATHER LOVES

A godly father loves his children. Our heavenly Father has lavished His love on us by making us His children. The heart of a godly father is filled with deep love for his children. David loved his son Absalom even though Absalom had turned against him. Even though David’s men won the victory over Absalom , David was filled with deep sorrow because Absalom was killed in the battle. He wept and said that he would have preferred to die in the place of Absalom. Such is the love in the heart of godly father towards his children. The Lord wants fathers to love their children with such a deep love. We must be grateful and appreciative of the love that we have received from our fathers.

SCRIPTURE REFERENCES

*************************

1 JOHN 3:1

How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him.

2 SAMUEL 18:5, 28-33

The king commanded Joab, Abishai and Ittai, "Be gentle with the young man Absalom for my sake." And all the troops heard the king giving orders concerning Absalom to each of the commanders.

Then Ahimaaz called out to the king, "All is well!" He bowed down before the king with his face to the ground and said, "Praise be to the LORD your God! He has delivered up the men who lifted their hands against my lord the king."

The king asked, "Is the young man Absalom safe?" Ahimaaz answered, "I saw great confusion just as Joab was about to send the king’s servant and me, your servant, but I don’t know what it was."

The king said, "Stand aside and wait here." So he stepped aside and stood there.

Then the Cushite arrived and said, "My lord the king, hear the good news! The LORD has delivered you today from all who rose up against you."

The king asked the Cushite, "Is the young man Absalom safe?" The Cushite replied, "May the enemies of my lord the king and all who rise up to harm you be like that young man."
