 Faith Facts ~ Father’s Day:

In the Bible it is Abraham who is counted as the father of faith and he is revered in Judaism, Islam and Christianity. Joseph of Galilee is an exemplary father in the Bible. He married Mary, despite the unusual circumstances of her pregnancy. He was a righteous man who dared to take on the roles of husband and foster father. We can learn much about fatherhood from Joseph. Another father that captures the imagination is a man called Jairus. He was a man of importance whose daughter was dying and he came to Jesus, fell at his feet and begged Jesus to help his child. He humbled himself for the sake of his daughter.
A final father from the Bible that is impressive is the one who had two sons, one of whom went astray. This is, of course, the story told by Jesus of the prodigal son. The father in the parable teaches his two sons powerful lessons of love: the one who went astray who discovered that his father’s care came to him even when he had run away from it and the other who struggled to understand such extravagant love in the face of his brother’s failures and his own fidelity. The father in the story, like God, never gave up on either of his children.
On Father’s Day let us remember that we have been given a heritage of dedication and faithfulness from the fathers we encounter in the Bible and from those fathers who exemplify the best qualities of parenting.
