IN RELIGION & THOUGHT
by ROBERT L. MOODY
I,ast month we honored our
mothers and last Sunday we hon
ored our children. On June 18th
we shall honor our fathers. There
are two kinds of all the people
There are always good people,
and bad ones, i. e., good and bad
mothers and children.
The same is true among the
On these special days of honor
wo often tell only the good and
never the bad and pretend that
it was good. Rather than exag
gerate it would be good to keep
Fatherhood is equally honorable
as motherhood. Though it is ex
pressed differently, life would be
incomplete w-ithout its love. We
are not only grateful for the love
nursing and training of mothers,
but we thank God for good fath
ers who love protect and provide
for their families. It takes more
than mere masculine powers to
be a father. Some mothers have
been both mother and father and
some fathers had done likewise.
Fatherhood is close to godliness
because we are taught: “Like as
a father pitieth hi3 children, so
the Lord pitieth them that fear
him.” Psalm 103:13.
