Father’s Day weekend conjures up different images for many of us. To some of us, our dads are heroes we aspire to become, to others, they serve as cautionary tales of what not to do and while the rest of us, might have a complicated status in our relationship with our dads at the present time.

But, whether you are a father or play the role of one, miss your dad or got to celebrate with him this weekend, or perhaps, you never got to have a relationship with him, the common tie that binds us is the love our heavenly Father has for us.

This Father’s Day weekend, Pastor Rich Wilkerson, Jr. challenged us with an apt message to Act Like Men from 1 Corinthians 16:13. A verse with powerful implications for the hearts of men and for all of us to be mature in our relationship with God.
