Key Points

  • God’s grace is sufficient for all of us, His strength is made perfect in our weakness
  • Admit as a man that we have weaknesses and that whatever lies the enemy tells you, whatever shame you have, God’s love, power and grace overcome all of that
  • God is telling us that He is going to take care of us
  • God gives us Milestone Memories
  • God is bigger than any moment in our life (my quote)
  • The game doesn’t teach you character it just reveals it
  • What we say to our kids as dads means a lot (good or bad)
  • Our ultimate model for maintaining a healthy relationship with our sons and daughters as fathers is that of God the Father and Jesus Christ the Son
  • Trust and abide in the Lord, John 15:5 to get the strength to maintain a healthy relationship with your son and / or daughter
  • To mend a broken relationship be humble, broken and contrite 
  • The love of an early father is so key in experiencing the love of our Heavenly Father
