Many of you have seen this already, I know…
Men, please be motivated by this. Are we angered by what angers God? Are we moved by what moves Him?
I am filled with what feels like rage when I watch this, if rage is pain and anger mixed with grief.
We MUST end this epidemic (and I hate when people use that word for something stupid). We must, as men, step in (is that where the term “step” parent should have come from?)
If the MEN of THE CHURCH don’t step in and end this, I hate to think of the consequences (though I guess we see them now as one report is that 78% of men in prison grew up without a father in the home when only 15% of the general population does) .
Men, let our hearts be turned back to our children… and the children of others who have been abandoned. There is NO higher calling that I can imagine.
We are all dying for the lack of spiritual parents… and the only cure is for some of us to be spiritual parents. Oh, and thank your father if he didn’t leave and if he was a good father.
