God has blessed me with a father who loves me and has given up a lot for me over the years. Even as an adult, he has gone out of his way to not only to make me feel loved but even helping me financially at times and, most importantly, being an example of a father who loves Christ. Was he perfect? Well, he’ll be the first to say, “No.” Why am I talking about my dad on his birthday? Well, it’s because I want to challenge us as parents to be like my dad. Do you love unconditionally? Do you help your family financially? And do you provide loving, godly counsel when your kids need it? That’s what my dad does. I want to be like my dad—he’s my fatherly inspiration.
