As Father’s Day nears, take a moment to reflect on memories of your dad. Was he strong, always willing to offer a tight hug? Was he encouraging, building you up with words of affirmation that helped you to keep going? He might’ve taught you basic skills or created special traditions, just between the two of you. Even in his imperfect moments, Dad was always an important figure that made a difference in your life.
Throughout Scripture, God Himself is referred to as “Father.” How amazing to experience a shadow of God’s qualities through our own fathers! Though they aren’t perfect, they were made in the image of God and His perfect fathering qualities, and that means they can strive, in faith, to emulate God’s holiness.
This Father’s Day, let’s think about how we might spur our fathers on to be more like Christ. The world may ask much of them and compare them to others in their careers and accomplishments, but their identity in Christ is most important. This year, you can give the true gift of honoring Dad’s faith. Help to affirm his hard work, his steps of faith, and his leadership in your family.
In Isaiah 40:31a, we learn that “those who trust in the LORD will renew their strength.” These gifts will help Dad to trust the Lord more, giving him the strength he needs to walk in faith for all his days to come. From books and Bibles to movies and even a great cup of coffee, we have gifts for every dad’s faith journey.
Here are a few great Christian gift ideas Dad will love!
