WHAT IS MISSING ON FATHER’S DAY IN THE YEAR 2014?

fatherLook in the newspaper, glance at the television, or just sit in the mall and watch people. What is missing? More and more often, we miss seeing the leadership of a strong, caring and decent man. Here of late, it has become all too obvious we are missing political leadership. Instead of crafting laws designed to make our people strong and independent, our leaders grasp for power — no matter what the cost. To steal a billion dollars for their patrons, the greedy sort who fund negative political campaigns, they waste 10 billion.

We have had so many scandals coming out of the Obama administration we cannot track of them anymore. It almost seems as if they create new scandals to distract and confuse us from the old ones.  What do we know about?

  • Bowe Bergdahl and terrorists
  • The Veterans Administration and waiting lists
  • IRS and Tea Party/Conservative Organizations
  • Benghazi, Libya and a dead American ambassador
  • So-called global warming and costly electrical power
  • Fast and Furious and illegal arms sales
  • The NSA and Snowden
  • James Rosen, the AP, and government surveillance
  • Demands for donations from businesses regulated by the HHS
  • Sumptuous training conferences for government employees
  • Same-sex weddings and the Constitution
  • Executive orders and the limits of presidential power
  • 2000 page bills no congressman reads and tens of thousands of pages of indecipherable regulations that will stifle our economy
  • The New Black Panthers and your right to vote
  • And so forth

Any one of these scandals — by itself — should have raised the ire of our nation. Yet the cumulative affect of a couple of dozen has been a bewildered yawn. Will we let a gift of God; the republic that once protected the lives and liberties of our families, friends and neighbors; die and only express confused indifference?

The answer begins (and began) at home. Are you a man? Are you a father? Have you tried to be a good father? Have you succeeded? If you think you have room for improvement (And don’t we all?), then check out Rob Barkman‘s post, Father’s Day Devotion – Leadership. Here is how it begins.

Our families are falling apart due to a lack of Godly leadership. Our political world is crying out for a sincere, honest leader.  Churches are falling into error and modernism because they have no strong leader to show them the right way.  Our world is crying out for genuine leadership.

Before I go any farther, it is important for me to define what I mean by a “genuine leader”….

What makes up a genuine leader for our families, governments and churches?  I believe a genuine leader is someone who will seek to follow the Lord’s will in every decision that he makes; someone who loves those he is responsible to lead; someone who will ALWAYS put his personal interests second to the interest of those he is leading; someone who will attempt to work for our peace while not sacrificing our security in the process; and  finally, someone who seeks our prosperity, not leading us to take advantage of others, but by leading us to prosper through honesty, quality, innovation and productivity.   (I’m sure we could all add several other qualities to this list… but I think you “get my drift”!) (continued here)

 is first and foremost a teacher of the Bible. Using the words of Jesus, he continues, and he reminds us of what it means to be a leader.
