Father’s Day in Bolivia

Father’s Day in Bolivia is celebrated on March 19th each year. Our church youth group and the Christian School had their programs to recognize the important role and contribution fathers and father figures make to the lives of children.

I was invited to speak to fathers at another church in Camiri and the Spirit led me to speak on the phrase the Apostle Paul uses to refer to Timothy and Titus as “my true son” and to ponder that the most important job of a father is in the spiritual sphere of their children. I ended up with the thought and challenge that while men’s fertility declines with age; there is no limit of age to continue procreating spiritual children!

It is also a good time to think that although human fathers may not always be what they should be, God is our perfect father. Tyndale New Testament commentary on Ephesians 3: 15 says, “He is also the One from whom alone all the fatherhood that there is derives its meaning and inspiration. From Him it derives its existence and its concept . .”

For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.”

Trivia: In the USA more phone calls are made during Mother’s Day than during Father’s Day, but the percentage of collect calls is much higher, making it the busiest day of the year for collect calls!
