Happy Father's Day

"We never know the love of our parents for us till we have become parents." - Henry Ward Beecher

"It is a wise father that knows his own child." - William Shakespeare

"Sometimes the poorest man leaves his children the richest inheritance." - Ruth E. Renkel

"By the time a man realizes that maybe his father was right, he usually has a son who thinks he's wrong." - Charles Wadsworth

The Bible tells us in:

Ephesians 6:1-4 - "Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. "Honor your father and mother," which is the first commandment with promise: "that it may be well with you and you may live long on the earth." And you, fathers, do not provoke your children to wrath, but bring them up in the training and admonition of the Lord."

Proverbs 13:1 - A wise son heeds his father's instruction, but a mocker does not listen to rebuke.
