Happy Father's Day To All of the Mighty Men of God

Divine Beginnings salutes all fathers, grandfathers, godfathers, step-fathers, uncles, and male role models who faithfully have a hand in raising and/or influencing the life of a child.

These “mighty men” are all around us! Yet they don’t often make news headlines because their worth is not always easy to see, measure or quantify.  Very often, they work hard behind the scenes to provide, protect and plan for their families and/or child(ren).  So today – on this Father’s Day 2016 – we want to make some “hoopla” and bring them to the forefront because they are special and have an incredible role!  God set the stage in the beginning of time in Genesis 1:26-27, when He created man in his own image.  With his creation came great power (and dominion over all the earth).

Mighty men set the tone for their child(ren) by first living their lives in an exemplary way, according to God’s word. (Our children watch us closely – even when we don’t realize it!) They also influence the kind of character their child(ren) will develop, the values they cherish, the kind of childhood they will have, the career and life decisions they will make, who they will look towards for affirmation, and the relationships they will ultimately have as adults.

So thank you to all the mighty men of God who are doing the right thing by their child(ren)! The world is a better place because of your “active presence.”
