It is a wise father that knows his own child.
- William Shakespeare

It is a challenge for many today to relate to a father, since many family units are without one living in the home. That makes it much more difficult for people to understand the concept of a Father God. Many have never known the love and care of a father. Others have known only abuse or neglect from their father.

Satan has worked tirelessly to destroy the family unit. In doing so he has muddied the thinking of young minds about fatherhood. Satan hates the Father, and he wants all men, women, boys, and girls to hate the whole idea of a father.

Gone are the days of "Leave It to Beaver," where Ward came home and handled the difficult character issues facing Beaver and Wally, then disciplined them firmly but affectionately.

Today we have Homer Simpson and Tim (The Tool Man) Taylor, who act like morons most of the time and incite little or no respect from their wives and children. Add most of society's personal experiences with their fathers—or lack of fathering—and we have a huge void in the family structure.

We cannot undo society or our own personal father issues, but God can. Through Jesus, we can know the real Father. He heals us and restores us and makes up for anything we missed from our natural fathers, which will provide the foundation we need to fulfill our mission.

Remember, the Father wants all the children He can get! That's why He put a desire in you to bring more children into His kingdom. It is your mission to share with others about our Father, the One who will never leave nor forsake us, the One who gives us peace in the midst of the storm, and the One who has prepared a glorious eternity for all who are committed to Him.

"For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father" (Rom. 8:15).

Carman Domenic Licciardello is an enigma in Christian music, often described as part evangelist, part Vegas Showman. His concerts were more like a rock and roll Billy Graham Crusade than a Christian music event. After all the singing, dancing, clapping and preaching, throngs of people would stream down to the counseling area to accept Christ-many times as many as 5,000 in an evening.
