A super dad
June 16, 2019
People will celebrate Father's Day this weekend. They will spend about $15 billion to show their great love for their father who has sacrificed so much (we know of some exceptions).
Comic book heroes still have great popularity. In 2017 alone, six superhero movies brought in more than $4 billion (US) at the box office. These movies raise a perplexing question. What draws such large crowds to these movies? People may have many answers, but could the real answer be that people need a superhero to help them with their problems that they can't solve.
Children view their dad as a superhero. They have complete confidence that their dad can do the impossible, and they will tell why they believe this. How many dads deal with such a high, lofty billing? He knows he does not qualify as a superhero or even just a hero. He realizes he has failed his children many times. Let's see if we can solve the problem so dads may accomplish this wonderful task.
In Genesis 5:22-24 it says this about Enoch, "And after he became the father of Methuselah, Enoch walked with God for 300 years and had other sons and daughters ... Enoch walked with God; then he was no more because God took him away." Enoch had many children and after he had his first son, the light came on. Every day he walked with God. Each day he got up and asked God for help, guidance, and wisdom to raise his children.
God's super power and wisdom helped Enoch to guide, direct and support his children so that they would accomplish the best in their lives. In short God made Enoch a superhero-dad because he relied on his all-powerful help which was God. God takes the ordinary dad and makes him into a superhero of life. God will do this for each dad if they rely on him.
