Affirmation

Dear Fans of Fatherhood and Humanity,

Four preachers met for a friendly gathering. During the conversation one preacher said, “Our people come to us and pour out their hearts, confess certain sins and needs. Let’s do the same. Confession is good for the soul.”

In due time all agreed. One confessed he liked to go to the movies and would sneak off when away from his church. The second confessed to liking to smoke cigars, and the third one confessed to liking to play cards.

When it came to the fourth one. He wouldn’t confess. The others pressed him, saying, ”Come on now, we confessed ours. What is your secret or vice?”

Finally he answered, ”Its gossiping, and I can hardly wait to get out of here.”

I think if you are a dad, mom, grandpa, grandma, brother, sister, son, daughter, aunt, uncle, or cousin you need affirmation more than you need to be gossiped about. This Father’s day let's lift up all the dads in our midst. And every day lets affirm and build up one another the best we can.

See Matthew 7:7-11 for further reflection.

Prayers: for the talks between the United States and North Korea. For fathers everywhere. For the family of Gloria Mitchell as they lay her to rest in Fertile, Minnesota this Saturday.

Still in One Peace,

Pastor David J. Jensen
