Mark Twain, the American humorist said:
“When I was a boy of fourteen, my father was so ignorant I could hardly stand to have the old man around. But when I got to be twenty-one, I was astonished at how much he had learned in seven years.”
While I was in college, I was asked to write a paper about the greatest man I’d ever met or read about. It was an easy and immediate decision. . .I wrote it about my Dad.
I often think about the character qualities I learned from my father that would benefit others.
Proverbs 20:7 in the Amplified Bible says:
“The righteous man walks in his integrity; blessed (happy, fortunate, enviable) are his children after him.”
There are seven character qualities of a Godly father that I want to share with you today. . .based on the life of James Harold Herring, Sr., my father.
First, everybody was worthy of respect.
