Call in to speak with the host
A frustrated father was heard to quip, “By the time a man is old enough to recognize that his father was right, he has a son who thinks he is wrong.” Well, it is Father’s Day again — it’s time to honor that man we used to think was so wrong until we grew up and he suddenly got smart.
We chuckle at the joke, but to be honest the humor awakens a sense of uneasiness in us. From deep within us, we feel that, among all the human relationships we experience in this life, there is something unique about the relationship of fathers and children. There is something about it that runs very deep, that touches close to the very center of our lives. When that relationship is good, it positively affects every other relationship in your life. And when that relationship is bad, it hands you a heartload of pain that chips away at the joy you feel about the good parts of your life. Such is the power of the father/child relationship in God’s world.
It's good to talk.
