Who would have thought that a Dove commercial would inspire me to write a poem? In honor of the upcoming Father's Day....
If Dads Only Knew....
If dads only knew the power they possess,
To inspire a child's heart and to bring out their best.
If dads only knew that it's not gifts of great privilege,
But his talks and his touches that shape a self-image.
If dads only knew that a child's "God" perception,
Is formed by modeling our Father in Heaven.
If dads only knew the dark forces against him.
You take down the family. You take down a nation.
If dads only knew that they're just stewards from birth,
Of what belongs to God only and what belonged to Him first.
"See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God!" -1 John 3:1
