For fathers, ‘Father’s Day’ is not just a one-time event, but a daily occurrence. You see to the welfare of the home and sacrifice everything for the betterment of your home. When you are pulled here and there, you hardly break. You keep your tears and weaknesses out of sight and act as the Superman of the house, the man of steel.
When a daughter is aching and heartbroken, she runs to her mom or dad. When a son feels threatened and crushed, he seeks for the guidance of his all-knowing parents. When mothers get wearied and tearful, she runs to her beloved husband, who simultaneously acts as her home adopted father.
Who do you fathers go to when you are hurt, confused, and distressed? Probably, no one. Instead, you put on a bold face and tell yourself “I am the man” even when we see you fighting the air, stepping spaces, and struggling to keep all together. Sometimes, you explode, and everyone begins to wonder why the ‘Iron Man’ eroding.
Fathers, as the world seizes this day to reference you and recognizes your office, may you know that you are deeply loved, cherished, and well appreciated. May you receive wisdom from God’s words to keep your home together continually as the world cripples every day in confusion.
