Honor Your Father
By: Rick Boxx
June 19, 2015

As the oldest of five children there were seasons when our family was growing and money was scarce. It was during those times that I remember my father’s determination to do whatever was necessary to provide for us.

He would come home from his assembly line job, change clothes, and leave again to be a gas station attendant or a school janitor. I have great respect for the sacrifices my father made for us!

Exodus 20:12 says, “Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be prolonged in the land which the LORD your God gives you.”

This weekend, as we celebrate Father’s Day, I think I’ll remind my dad how highly I have regarded the work ethic he modeled. It’s a good day to honor fathers, grandfathers, and mentors.
