You’ve probably already seen this – its been viewed more than a million times and many people emailed it to me.
It is still a great 2:32 seconds to watch again! (Note: this is a slightly longer version than has been showing up on CNN and other places.)
Three highlights for me:
1) A dad who shouts his boy’s name in delight.
2) A dad who lets his son demonstrate his hard work, until he couldn’t stand it anymore and rushed to pick him up.
3) A mom who rightly observes about her son, “I ain’t taking my eyes off daddy.”
I hope my sons feel my affections like that. We dads have been given a good model for how to behave toward them!
And when Jesus was baptized, immediately he went up from the water, and behold, the heavens were opened to him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and coming to rest on him; and behold, a voice from heaven said, “This is my beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased.” (Matthew 3:16-17 ESV)
