Just recently, we held our first Daddy/Daughter Date Night. Several aspects caused this event to be great. First, the dads were able to spend time with their daughters, which is irreplaceable. Second, the dads were able to show their daughters how a true gentlemen treats a young lady he likes and/or cares for. Third, the dads were able to let loose and cut up with their daughters in a way they might not normally. Fourth, the dads and daughters participated in a game together about how well they know each other. Last, they were able to dedicate one night totally to their daughter with no distractions or interruptions. Both the dads and the daughters had a great night.
I wish all dads and daughters would participate in an event like this. These evenings can do more good for their relationship than most would imagine. It was a joy to see the look in the eyes of our girls as they spent time with their dads. I hope and pray that both the dads and daughters will remember this night for a long time.
If you are a dad, I hope you take the responsibility God has given you seriously. There is no greater responsibility you could ever be given. Take time while you have it to spend with your children. Take them out, play with them, have a serious conversation with them and teach them the importance of living lives of service to God. This time and energy will be the greatest investment you will ever make. After all, it’s an eternal investment for you and your children.
“Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it” (Prov. 22:6).
Now that’s Something to Think About!
