Devotional: Father’s Day Sermon
Father’s Day is a day that means a variety of things for a variety of people. For some, it is joyful remembrance for the father who has played such an integral part in their life. For others, this day can bring up frustration, anger, and sadness in remembrance of a father who has not been there, physically, emotionally, or spiritually.
However, as Christians we all have access to our loving, caring, faithful, and good Heavenly Father. Whatever experience you may be bringing with you today of your earthly father, our Heavenly Father calls us sons and daughters, and delights when we experience his fatherly affection for us.
