"Happy Father's Day"


Pastor Aaron Kwon


 

           Dear dads, do you remember the day you found out you were going to become a father? I can only imagine all the emotions going through you at once. Do you remember the day you held your child in your arms for the very first time? I would assume you were speechless, yet in awe. I am not a father, so I can’t really identify all the feelings and thoughts that you experienced, but one thing for sure is that I would be very scared. Afraid to fail as a father, frightened to fail as a role model, and fearful to fail raising a child who will fear and love the Lord. But the reality is that, no matter how hard we try, we will still fail in certain areas. To all the imperfect fathers reading this, there are a few things I would like to communicate to you.

First, be quick to acknowledge your failures. It is good to do your best, but keep in mind that even your very best might not be the best for your children. There are times that when we have failed, we believe that our children have failed us. But I pray that in those moments, may we recognize our mistakes first and foremost.

Second, don’t be afraid to apologize. Because of our intentional and/or unintentional failures, our families get hurt. I know fathers, who are fully aware of their mistakes, haven’t yet apologized to their children. Some they feel that there is no need for it since they are family, others think that their kids have moved on, and some feel awkward and scared to apologize. But I pray that once you acknowledge your mistakes, may you also apologize to heal the wounds left in your children’s lives.

Lastly, guide your children. Those who are in a committed relationship with God can and should guide their children into an intimate relationship with the Father. Children often ask their parents to help them with their homework, and many times, we don’t know the answer nor how to help them. But don’t we still try to help them? I pray that you will have the same heart to guide your children spiritually. Though you might feel unequipped, may you attempt to guide them.
