The Empire Strikes Back – Father’s Day

Darth Vader had nothing to give Luke except the dark side!

Mark 8:36

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?


BE THERE

There was no father.
– “Shmi” (Anakin’s mother) in Star Wars

Matthew 1:20

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?


THERE ARE NO SHORTCUTS

There is ONE way. Everything else is the long way.
