For me, Father’s Day brings a lot of good memories of my dad. As I look back, I appreciate him a lot more now than during the time I was living at home. He exhibited a quiet strength of character whose early years were formed by the Great Depression and the farming woes of the Dirty 30’s. I believe much of his character and determination was formed through the difficult circumstances he grew up in. He experienced tests of faith throughout his life which I was able to watch and learn from. The story of Abraham being commanded to go to Mount Moriah in Genesis 22 to sacrifice his son, Isaac, as a burnt offering was the greatest test that Abraham, the soon-to-be Father of all nations, would experience. We learn a lot about Abraham in this story, but we learn a lot more about God and His faithfulness.
