Father’s Day

1 Thessalonians 2:10-12: “You are witnesses, and so is God, of how holy, righteous and blameless we were among you who believed. For you know that we dealt with each of you as a father deals with his own children, encouraging, comforting and urging you to live lives worthy of God, who calls you into his kingdom and glory.”

Dads, I Thessalonians 2:10-12 gives us 10 ways we want to say thanks to you today:

1) Thanks for being a good example

2) Thanks for caring for your kids

3) Thanks for encouraging your kids

4) Thanks for comforting your kids

5) Thanks for urging your kids to go deep with God

6) Thanks for not exasperating your kids

7) Thanks for bringing your kids up to believe

8 ) Thanks for disciplining your kids

9) Thanks for teaching your children

10) Thanks for having a heart for your kids

I hope you can make an A+ looking at that list that Paul gives us.  If not, it’s a great list to start working on.
