An Imperfect Father

Judges 11_1Gilead blew it…big time. Having a son by a prostitute doesn’t get you nominated for too many father of the year awards.

But for all his imperfections, Gilead seemed to have done one thing right: He told Jephthah what he knew of God. For, when push came to shove, Jephthah could recite, with great insight,how God established His people in the land He promised them.

And so it is for me, I am far from a perfect father (just ask my daughter). I’ve blown it many times. With my track record, I feel unqualified to tell my daughter much of anything.

But this I can and will purpose to do. I will tell her of the goodness of God, of all He has done, in my life, and throughout the Bible.
