Celebrate Dads and Grads

7 Min Read

It's a time of joyful celebration for students all over the world as graduates prepare for the next phase of life. We've put together this list of resources that will help guide these students in their faith as they head off to college, the work force, or other avenues God has orchestrated.

On June 21, 2009, we will take a day to celebrate fathers for their faithful service, leadership, guidance, love, and devotion. Scripture tells us that the glory of children is their fathers (Prov. 17:6b). We've provided these resources as ideas for honoring one of our most influential teachers of divine truth.

I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect (Romans 12:1-2, ESV).

Whatever else I may be, I am a man. That God is my Father means He cares for me, that when I ask for bread I will not receive a stone or a scorpion. His arms are strong. He is mighty in battle, a strong fortress for my soul. These terms may be masculine, but they are images of a strength that is tempered by tenderness, virtues every child, boy or girl, long for in their earthly father. —R.C. Sproul
