Everyone should be able to relate to this message – from fathers & mothers, to wives, sons & daughters, as well as relatives & friends..
Here are a few key elements of the outline:
YOUR HEAVENLY FATHER
Your Heavenly Father is not just a substitute or replacement, He is the ultimate example of a good Father – the BEST EVER!
A FATHER FIGURE
The role of a father in the home is extremely important!

HONORING AND APPRECIATING THE FATHERS
Fathers do a lot, and work hard to provide for their families. It is important to appreciate the things you can, and not criticize them.
It’s important to extend forgiveness to one another.
Let’s imitate Jesus example of forgiveness...
In everything give thanks, for this is the will of God… (I Thessalonians 3:18)
Get your identity from what your Heavenly Father says about you, not from what others say…
DON’T get your identity from negative things other people may say – be like your Heavenly Father who is patient, loving, forgiving, etc... Say, “I’m full of forgiveness, because that’s the way my dad (Heavenly Father) is! “I’m patient because that’s the way my Heavenly Father is… and I’m growing to become more like my “Dad”... Our Heavenly Father if full of love & compassion, full of mercy, full of forgiveness, etc.
