The Honor of Fathers…
Like most things & most holidays, Father’s Day has come through quite the process and is still controversial. The first effort at honoring fathers was in 1908 in West Virginia, followed by another one the next year in Spokane, Washington. Later, in 1916, President Wilson honored the day, and in 1924 Pres. Coolidge urged its observance. It wasn’t until Richard Nixon in 1972, that Father’s Day became a national holiday.
Many men disdain the day for what they see as an attempt to domesticate manliness with flowers and gifts that the father pays for, for himself. Of course, the commercial enterprise can’t be ignored. Estimates are that more than $1billion is spent for Father’s Day each year.
Father’s Day can be difficult for some, with a wash of emotions along a continuum of ‘great’ to ‘mixed’ to ‘anger/hate’ for fathers. I empathize with those emotions and will step out on a limb and say that I believe you can ask men anywhere and won’t find one to admit to being a perfect dad. Many make a distinction between ‘dad’s’ and ‘fathers.’ Any male can be a father; there is an increasing number of ‘baby daddies’ in our society. But it takes commitment, love, patience, a lot of hard work and much more to be a dad.
But, the important aspect to me is that it is our relationship with our dad/father that often influences how we view God as Father. I suggest that we use God’s measure of being the perfect father to be the lens through which we look at our earthly dads and not the other way around. Many won’t honestly consider God as Father because of the way their dads were. As a dad, I know I will always fall short being who and what I need to be. God is our perfect Father and is the one we look to and aspire to be like. Honor Him.
