Good Gifts

So, what did you get dear old dad for Father’s Day this year? Perhaps new equipment for the grill or a hat with the logo of his favorite baseball team ... or, maybe, that tried-and-true gift of a necktie. One of the things we recognize as we give gifts to dad is that dad has already given a lifetime of gifts to us. We thank God for Christian fathers who care for our physical and spiritual needs! However, as loving as our earthly fathers may be, the love of our heavenly Father is even greater. Jesus says, “If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in Heaven give good things to those who ask Him!” (Matthew 7:11) We thank our Father in Heaven for His gifts of the Holy Spirit, daily necessities, eternal life, and yes, the gift of earthly fathers, too.
