To our dear fathers: You have guided our every step and became our life advisor. You became our breadwinner and provided our needs. You were our hero who gives us a ride on his back when we were little. Though loving, you made corrective actions to our wrong doings. To some, you may have been the tough guy who is cold and serious most of the time.
Nevertheless, you are a part of our life and we thank the Lord for giving us someone like you. We wouldn’t be where we are right now if it weren’t for you. And as a tribute for all of these, we’d like to encourage you with these Bible Verses about Fathers.
