The Sparta Spirit
Happy Father's Day!
Sunday, June 21, 2020
Author Steve Farrar encourages Christian fathers to be spiritual submarines under the surface of their children’s lives. “Through your prayers you have the ability to affect situations where you are not physically present,” he writes in Standing Tall. “You may be undetected, but that does not mean that you are ineffective.”
A man who puts on the armor of God and goes to war on his knees for his children is a force to be reckoned with, Farrar adds. “When it comes to battle … understand that you have been given awesomely powerful weapons.”
“No man stands taller than when he stoops to help a child.”
“A truly rich man is one whose children run into his arms when his hands are empty.”
God whom Jesus knew as Father: Thank you for earthly fathers — biological or not — who nurture children in love and teach them to love others.
