Darth Vader had nothing to give Luke except the dark side!
MAKE IT BETTER
It’s what we do, men are fixers. So fix it! Pass along something better than was passed on to you.
Do we know our weak spots?
There was no father.
– “Shmi” (Anakin’s mother) in Star Wars
Fathers are important to God!
Connect! Teach your children these three things Jesus says about how to deal with tough relationships:
1. Love and pray for enemies and those who mistreat you – Luke 6:27-28
2. Go to those you are upset with – Matthew 18:15
3. Go to those upset with you – Matthew 5:23-24
Anakin had many men in his life – Watto, Qui Gon, Obi-Wan – but not one committed man.
Kids who grow up without a connected father struggle.
Which is more important, physical presence or mental and verbal presence?
If you are only there physically and not connected you’re missing the point of being there physically!
THERE ARE NO SHORTCUTS
There is ONE way. Everything else is the long way.
