As you celebrate Father's Day on Sunday, remember also your Heavenly Father.
Noah's dad, Lamech, loved him. Lamech said, "Noah will comfort us in our hard work..." During the hundreds of years after Cain's birth, most of the people stopped thinking about God. But, Lamech taught his son Noah and his other children about God's ways. Only Noah chose to worship God.
Noah loved God and wanted to obey Him. He became a dad after living 500 years. He taught his sons Shem, Ham, and Japheth how to worship and please God. Other people ignored Noah's family; they didn't want to hang around a family that thought so much about God.
95 years later, Noah's dad died. Noah chose to honor both his dad and his Heavenly Father by teaching his sons to walk close to God.
What ways can you suggest we honor either our earthly dad or our Heavenly Dad?
