Is it too late to say Happy June? Nope. It’s never too late to speak positive things over another person. And, no matter how old you are, it’s never too late to become a part of or be born into a good family. This month’s word/theme is Adopted by God.

Father’s Day is this month. We celebrate dads—the good ones especially—and try to encourage single mothers with praise for being both mother and father.

For most people, Mother’s Day is filled with warm feelings towards a sacrificing, loving, nurturing mom. At the same time, most people don’t look at Father’s Day with the same sense of reverence. One viewing of an NFL or NBA draft will show what seemingly insignificant roles fathers play in their son’s lives.

Fathers Matter

An absent father is just as significant as a present father. Children learn from action and inaction. Children learn from silence and words. Children learn from fulfilled promises and broken promises.

These childhood lessons stick with us until adulthood. Unfortunately, when parents don’t project the person they were created to be they leave their children with hurt, forgiveness, immaturity, and a false sense of who God is. When you can’t trust your biological father, it is hard to trust God—the perfect, awesome God of ALL creation.

Who Is Your Father?

Some biological fathers don’t want to be fathers. Others have not been equipped to be good fathers because the had no example of fatherhood. Fear of failure takes over, preventing them from being emotionally secure, present fathers.

But, there is a perfect Father who is ready, and, most of all, willing to meet our needs. Ephesians 1:5 says, “having predestined us to adoption as sons by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will.”

You are Adopted by God

Do you know what that means? God loves us so much that before we were born, before our parents were born, before our parents, parents were born that he made a way for us to have access to him and every good thing he has to offer through Jesus Christ.

You don’t have to live with the pain of rejection because God accepted you when other people didn’t.

You don’t have to live a loveless life because God loved you when your parents didn’t now how t love you—when you didn’t know how to love yourself.

You don’t have to live as an outsider because God redeemed you and brought you into his family, with all rights and privileges of an heir. You are not a stepchild or an afterthought.

You are a loved Child of the King!
