My father’s example set my standard of being a husband and father. I learned what it means to be a man from my father. I also learned what it means to be a husband and family from he and my mother together. Their relationship guided me as an example of how a family succeeds.
Fathers are important in civilization and the development of us as humanity. When a father is absent, many are blessed with father figures. I have learned family means a lot of things. It is about community. God is community between Jesus and the Holy Spirit, the three are one. They are a community united. We have been made in God’s likeness (Genesis 1:27) and elevated to sons and daughters through Jesus (Gal 3:26). We are the community of God, the family of God.
