With Father's Day weekend approaching I spoke about some of my personal history and some of the resulting difficulty I have with Father's Day, each year due to my lack of a present father growing up. I read some from Dr Tony Evans in preparation and was reminded of the important role we as men play in the lives of those around us including our kids or other kids we may influence. Dr Tony Evans made several valid points in the sermon I reviewed but there was 1 idea that stood out to and challenged me. God gives us guidelines and boundaries, similar to a football field, that we stay within. But that isn't all, he also gives us a playbook on how to live life within those guidelines. If we are each out here running our own plays and routes, chaos will ensue. We are challenged as men, not just as adult males, to follow God's playbook and to make a positive impact on those within our influence. Dr Evans challenges as men and as fathers to lead by proper example and to follow the plays as called by God.
