TEXT: Ephesians 6:1-3

The Bible commands us to honor our fathers and our mothers. And, today, on this Father's Day, we are going to honor those whom God has placed in our lives as fathers. People down through the years have attested to the benefits that they received by having a father in their life.

Billy Graham said, "A good father is one of the most unsung, un-praised, unnoticed, and yet one of the most valuable assets in our society."

Martin Luther King Jr. said, "The thing that I admire most about my dad is his genuine Christian character. He is a man of real integrity, deeply committed to moral and ethical principles."

Jim Valvano said, "My father gave me the greatest gift anyone could give another person, he believed in me."

Today, we want to thank God for and honor the good fathers in our lives, but before we get to that, we must recognize the fact that there are a lot of bad fathers, a lot of men who have chosen not to fulfill the role of a father to their children. We constantly hear about it in the news, on radio talk shows, and on television. It has rightly been called the "epidemic" of fatherlessness. This epidemic is especially evident in the black community. We have young people who walk across the graduation stage, get their first job, get married, or reach some other level of success in their lives, and each time they turn around and say, "Thanks, Mom." Why? Because they didn't have a good father in their lives. So, we want to briefly deal with the negative side of this coin on this Father's Day.
