Sometimes, unscripted TV really does do something that touches the heart. Such was the case with this video that has been making the rounds the last couple of days. Watch the 39-second clip from Jenny Jones:
It is a clip like this that makes me want to get on a mountain and shout. Instead, I’m going to use this blog as my megaphone.
I am tired of being told by the entertainment world and a feminist-gone-wild society that my role is not important. Dads who are truly dads know what it is like to work hard, have constant stress, fight the temptations of our enemy, and try to guide lives toward the future, only to turn on the TV and be the laughingstock of nearly every program.
Yes, men, it is time we did our job well, and it is time we became the hard-working servant-leaders that God requires. But I know plenty of dads who are doing just that, and then we are the brunt of humor for not being cool, or we are crushed by societal trends for being domineering.
That little boy spoke more wisdom in his honest statement than most of our society ever well. Every one of us who is a dad and who is not doing our all to be for our boys and girls what we should be needs to get on our knees before God and repent, then we need to get about being the dad that those children deserve.
But to all of you dads who are godly servants and who are aiming your arrows toward heaven through exhausting work and fervent prayer, thank you. You are the daddy those kids not only deserve, you are the one they need. Keep it up!
