Fathering the Next Generation

Today's Father's Day message (9MB of MP3) was spot on! I particularly liked how the pastor ended with the verse:
So do not be ashamed to testify about our Lord, or ashamed of me his prisoner. But join with me in suffering for the gospel, by the power of God -- 2 Tim 1:8
We can say that our sons have come of age when we can say to them, "join with me in suffering for the gospel" -- I'll be the first to admit I'm not there yet.

Casting visions for our children (esp. sons) are what's really needed and reminded me of:
Where there is no vision, the people perish -- Prov 29:18 (KJV)
And I liked how the message focused on, in essence, discipleship and then sending out.
