I know loads of folks believe their father deserves the “Father of the year” award… but heck! they are definitely deceiving themselves :p because I’ve got a Father I call Super-Human.
You may wonder why, so here’s why:
He’s a fantastic role model, he has taught me and shown me a way of life, i never can depart from. My father is a card-carrying member of the verse proverbs 22:6, in the same light of living by the word, he is a devoted follower of that verse we as young ones never really fancied – Proverbs 13:24, yeah, that one they go ranting when they want to whoop your behind. (sparing the rod and spoiling the child)
He is the HEAD of our home, my father is a living example of a True Leader, he does not teach us A and practice B, we all live on his Faith, he has such a large faith I wonder how he does It. His trust in God is unquantifiable.
He is a Good man, we all have heard from here and there of how some other home are like, you know; the cheating husband, the wife beater, the gambler, the drunk…you get my drift. I can beat my chest and confidently say he’s non of that. Just yesterday, my mother confessed to me about him saying and I quote “Funto, your father is a good man”.
Since I can remember, he has never raised his voice against my mother or even a single finger against her.
He is passionate about what he does… my father is a Chartered Accountant but most importantly a Shepherd(a pastor). You know that verse that says: Out of the abundance of the Heart, the mouth speaketh..? now here is what happened one memorable night when I had to wake my dad from the living room to go sleep in his room, he started talking from his sleep, how he thought I went to Russia to save souls and was pretty much pissed that I hadn’t gone; in the midst of all the laughter that night, I had learned something valuable.
Sometimes, I’m tempted to open up his shirt to see if he’s got the Superman outfit on but truth is: God is his muscle #NoJoke … The simple trick is #FollowGod … that way, you too can become #SuperHuman.
