Bulletin, 6 12-18

  1. 1. 4 Hugh Vol. 43 June 12, 2018 Number 23 From Father to Daddy By Barry Kennedy The summer heat is quickly approaching. Many children are right in the middle of this year’s summer ball season. Parents are frantically running around in such a pace that no seasoned Olympic runner could dare match. We often meet ourselves coming or going, but never seem to be still. With all the practices, work, church activities we find ourselves always in the fast lane of life. Why? We love our children and want them to be happy. Often, in the heat of all this running around, we find ourselves stressed and wondering if it is really worth all of the effort. Sadly many “fathers” have decided that this is not the life they dreamed it would be and, in turn, decide that the grass may just be greener on the other side. It is at this point that he becomes nothing more than a biological father and ceases being a true “DADDY.” I know that the words father and daddy can have the same definition and some even switch them to say father is the better term. Either way, we all know there is a difference in one who brings life into this world, and one who brings this world a life. God’s wisdom is shown in the establishment of the home. Yes, long before the “gay rights” movement tried to redefine the home, God perfected it by establishing one man with one woman, and that was to be for life. Jesus said it this way, “Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female, And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder” (Matthew 19:4-6). What exactly are we, as fathers, providing for our children? Fun and recreation, food and shelter, or what about knowledge and wisdom? No one can deny that there has been a breakdown in the home. We need to be thankful for those fathers who take seriously the responsibility that comes with being a parent. God set up the home to have a man serving as the provider “But if any provide not for his own, and especially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel” (1Timothy 5:8). Of course, parents must provide for the physical needs of their children, but sadly, some take on the role of father and never choose to be a “daddy.” Think back, those of you who are fathers, to the first time you heard your child say “da, da.” It was not long until that “da, da,” turned into daddy. Can you imagine a two or three-year-old saying “father?” When the children are little we provide for their physical needs, but also provide PLAY time. Nothing says I love you to a child better --article continued on page 2-- ELDERS Mike Childers..............397-6453 Dennis Hallmark .........255-5557 Mark Hitt.....................322-0917 Bobby Lindley.............260-9193 DEACONS Wade Bryan.................419-5552 William Harris.............416-8149 Ricky Lindsey .............844-9944 Jeff Mansel..................871-0357 Harold Roby................844-5431 Jimmy Spearman.........840-8957 Michael Wilson ...........891-0891 PREACHER Barry Kennedy ...

  2. 2. --article continued from page 1— than playing with them. They cherish those moments. Think back, do we remember (or did we ever care) how much money our dads made? More often than not, we remember the time that they spent with us much more than the money they spent on us. Toys break and get lost, clothes are out grown, but memories last a lifetime. I still remember talking with my grandfather not long before he passed from this life. He could still very vividly recall memories of his childhood, even though he might not have been able to tell you what happened just thirty minutes earlier. I want my children to cherish their childhood memories as well. Fathers are needed in the society we find ourselves today. However, is it not true that we need more men who are willing to be “DADDIES?” Men who not only provide the necessities, such as food, clothing, shelter, and most importantly God’s Word (Ephesians 6:4), but also men who are providing love, character, and an attitude of joy in and for life. It is to those daddies that we proudly say, “HAPPY FATHERS DAY!” May we all strive to go from being just “fathers” to becoming true “daddies” and give God the glory! Let’s shine our Christian lights, through our Christian homes by becoming more godly “DADDIES.” Update on Community Outreach Project ❖ Has provided over 100 weekend meals for children at local schools ❖ Has provided Police Appreciation Bags for Tupelo City & Itawamba County Sheriff’s Dept. ❖ Is continuing to provide snacks and other items for the Cancer Center & ICU ❖ Has provided toiletries & hygiene products to local schools ❖ Is in the process of providing duffel bags at local shelters ❖ Continuing to stock our pantry with household items for the community ❖ Continuing to provide our visitors with our church information with the Welcome Packets We would like to thank the entire congregation for all of the support everyone has shown!
