Yesterday, we celebrated Father’s Day. A day to recognize our dads for all of their hard work and effort. Unfortunately, for many people, and for many dads, we were celebrating the “wrong things”. In other words, what makes a dad “successful”?
In 1 Kings 9:1 it states, “9 And it came to pass, when Solomon had finished building the house of the Lord and the king’s house, and all Solomon’s desire which he wanted to do,”
Solomon, as wise man and son of King David, celebrated the fact that he had built both the “house of the Lord and the king’s house, and all Solomon’s desire which he wanted to do.” Sadly, we do not read of Solomon spending that same time and effort into building his family (children).
Dads, don’t be so focused on building your house that you forget to first build your family on the Lord. A house is just a building. It is a family that makes it a home.
I pray for blessings today for you on your Journey!
