Sermon Notes

TAILWIND DADS


Psalm 127


 


“Unless the Lord builds the house, those who build it labor in vain. Unless the Lord watches over the city, the watchman stays awake in vain. It is in vain that you rise up early and go late to rest, eating the bread of anxious toil;  for he gives to his beloved sleep. Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the children of one's youth. Blessed is the man who fills his quiver with them! He shall not be put to shame when he speaks with his enemies in the gate.” Psalm 127


 


“I would have killed for a hug from my father.” -Burt Reynolds


 


“Not receiving any blessing from your father is an injury. If you’re a young man and you’re not


being admired by an older man, you’re being hurt...Not seeing your father when you are small,


never being with him, having a remote father, an absent father, a workaholic father, is an injury”


- Iron John, Robert Bly.

Psalm 127:1-2
