What is a father?

By Faeza

Kenan was the son of Enosh. Enosh was the son of Seth. Seth was the son of Adam. Adam was the son of God - Luke 3:38.

It is said that water is purest at the point of its source. We can therefore safely conclude that the concept of father can best be understood by going to its source, God, like the above scripture reveals.

God made man (male and female) in His image. A father gives his family not only a name, but also an image. God planted a good garden and placed man in it. A father provides an enabling environment for his children to live and grow.

God gave Adam and Eve instructions regarding how to live well in the garden. A father is a law - giver,  a guide, a source of wisdom, and a mentor. God took time to be with Adam and Eve daily. A father gives his children quality time. A father is an all-round provider. He provides materially, emotionally, and spiritually.

So, when men struggle to father, they can learn from the Originator of fathering, and find grace to father.

To all those fathers who are continuing to do their best to father, more grace and happy Father's Day.
