Father’s Day will be here in a week and I have a lot to say about dads. So I’m beginning with this one. It’s a rerun from several years ago, but I think it applies today, even more than it did back then.
WANTED: Man who is willing to sacrifice nearly all his working income to the benefit of his children. One who will set aside time to comfort, tend broken arms, encourage young minds and put his children before himself. A man who when faced with difficulty at work, will not be deterred in his parenting. A man who will do all that he can to take care of the physical needs of his children and is the spiritual leader of his house. A man who will give up his Saturday golf game to teach his son how to fish. A man who is setting a great example for his daughter as to what a good husband should be.
EXPERIENCE: None necessary. This is a job that you learn as you go. The only real manual is the Bible. Trial and error will often be your instructors. If you had a father that led, was involved in the family, gave up much for them and loved them unconditionally, you have more than enough experience knowing what a good father is. If you believe in God, the Father, you have the perfect exampleto follow.
REQUIREMENTS: Patience, leadership qualities, perseverance, teaching ability, love, involvement, great work ethic. One who deserves respect from his family and does everything in his power to earn it. One who prays daily with his children and teaches them the ways of the Lord.
SALARY: None, but the rewards and benefits are greater than any job you’ve ever expected.
