Sometimes it seems there is no end to news of men behaving badly after their children with disabilities are born. It happened again on Friday.
The incredible statistics on divorce when disability enters a family (70%, 80%, 85%) are, to my knowledge, not actually substantiated by any research (if anyone has seen research, please comment below with a link or reference).
But even one man abandoning his family is one too many.
As God ordains things, I came into my office 20 minutes after hearing that news to an email that included a link to the video below. I had seen this video before some years ago but hadn’t thought about it for some time. The contrast between one man leaving his family and another man narrating the story of his son with a genetic anomaly was stark.
I may have posted this video before, but it is worth seeing again, particularly since it brings an example of a young man trusting in God and leading his family well.
Please, pray for men, particularly daddies, that we would cling to Jesus and serve our families well today.
