173/365: The Gift of a Father

The father of a righteous child has great joy; a man who fathers a wise son rejoices in him. ~ Proverbs 23:24

The sock drawer is full and the handmade gifts overflow the special basket made just for her artwork. 

My daughter is the joy of my life and the best thing I'll ever contribute to this world. I have prayed daily since she was conceived and 22 years later, I still pray daily for her. 

The greatest gift a dad can ever receive is to see his child embrace Jesus Christ and live like it.  The same holds true for spiritual fathers of the children who crave guidance.

The example of Christ begins with us and we pass it to the world. You can be a spiritual father to many.
