[Updated Post] I never thought that a simple passage about Zechariah would contain so much wisdom about the role of fathers. But then again, the Bible never cease to amaze me.
Ps. Joey Bonifacio of Victory Christian Fellowship expressed that Zechariah‘s story reveals the role of fathers. These roles include the following: Intimacy , Instruction, Influence and Identity. With the pressure of providing for their children’s needs, many fathers unconsciously de-prioritize these roles. Fatherhood is truly challenging but with God’s help, successful fathering is possible.
Happy Father’s Day to the 2 fathers in my life. My beloved father, Mr. Rufino Tan, who also celebrates his birthday tomorrow and my husband, Ganns Deen. Both practice the art of fathering everyday.
