Reading: Proverbs 10: 1
My dad always said that mothers get more attention and credit than fathers do. When people are on television, often they say, "Hi mom!" He wondered why they didn't say, "Hi dad." He also felt that our country makes more hoopla over Mother's Day than Father's Day.
In Proverbs, we are told that a wise son makes a glad father. I hope that I am a wise son. I think that I am. I hope my dad is glad. I'd like to go a step further and say a wise father makes a glad son. And I definitely am a glad son.
My dad has been a big influence in my life and I have learned much by just watching him. I am very proud of my father. He continues to be an inspiration to me.
So on your special day, dad, know that you are appreciated, not only today but everyday. And to my Heavenly Father, know that the same goes for you each day of the year. --Chad Hershberger, Camp Mount Luther Director
Closing: Today, thank your dad or someone important in your life.
