Tradition will call for children to celebrate their dads today, sort of “dad appreciation day” (you know, like pastor appreciation day), lifting him up a little higher than they are expected to throughout the year. But Fathers’ Day can be an opportunity for dads, even older dads as long they have enablement, to be renewed in their understanding and commitment to invest in their families. This means dads buy the gifts, he pays for Sunday dinner. In other words, from the grace perspective, this day is a celebration of dads being dads.
