Father's Day Reminiscences....

Words In Season:

A son is a trumpet; a father is the player. Whatever notes and tune the player sends, the trumpet blows and sound out to the hearing of all.
                    Soji Omole


"Hear, ye children, the instruction of a father, and attend to know understanding."
       Proverbs 4:1


Sub head:
Ever Before I Learnt To Read The Bible

That we don't greet does not mean I keep malice with you.
He newly became a father
Because keeping malice is thinking evil, speaking evil and working evil towards others. That is where the adjective "malicious" was coined from. Check your dictionary.
And I practise none these above.
Nor do I practise the worst form of it - smiling at others, speaking fair with others when there are 7 abominations in my heart. (Proverbs 26:25). Nor speaking peace with my fellow men when there is mischief in my hinder part. (Psalm 28:3). Yorubas call such "apani má y'odà"
But when my spirit doesn't agree with yours, I keep you at arms length than playing the above sketched hypocrisy with you.
A father on his son's graduation day
Or if you are on the wrong side and your body language speaks "no regrets, no apologies" and "if am giving another opportunity, I will do more even worse"
Then I owe myself and my generation yet unborn a duty to keep a safe distance from you. How much more of keeping company with you or associating myself with you. People have misunderstood these these traits as malice, but I have never shifted my hard-line ground in my relationship structures with others. Yet I got a lot friends NOT on Facebook but online across the length and breath of the nation criss crossing tribes and religion.
That was the foundation my father laid for me from a tender age of 5 ever before I learnt to read grammar to open pages of the Bible to read verses like "Evil communication corrupt good manners" or "He that walketh with the wise shall be wise but the companion of fools shall be destroyed" and other allied verses.
A son born but not well raised and built will sell of the houses his father built
If my Dad's spirit does not agree with the way a lad leads and conduct his life, he instructs me to stay off him. "Don't keep company with that bad boy"
And in the days of my youth if someone does anything base and short of sound morality, my Father's body language change towards such, until he come to terms and amends, even me his own son!
My fathers code word is sincerity:
No pretence, no hypocrisy with others. (Psalm 28:3, Proverbs 26:25)
But If you smell a foul odour of a rat in any, stay off him or her! Don't pretend all is well and still associate and keep company with such.
How much more of now that we in most perilous of perilous days The Bible said shall come in the last days? II Timothy 3:1-5
Speaking peace with your neighbour but mischief is in your innermost heart?
Why then will I allow flagellating views and opinions of men whose breath is their nostrils, change this basic solid rock golden foundation you laid for me at a young tender age, my father? Even the foundation of whom I keep company and associate myself with? For if the foundation be destroyed, what can the righteous do?
Happy Father's Day, Dad.
Whether you be a father who have ran foul of these laws of "garbage in garbage out" or a son whose father has ran foul of these laws and blew the wrong tunes into you, sounding out unpleasant and discordant tunes to the hearing of all, there is still a remedy.
Only a father can do this, for his
son's sake
Yes. There is still hope. There is still a way of escape. That tune can still be changed and you will begin to emit pleasant melodies again to all listening ears. Not only can the tune be changed, it can be fine tuned.
That remedy can only be found in Jesus. The only One that has the power to UNDO anything that has been done amiss. He alone has the power that can undo even to the extent of raising hitherto dry bones to able bodied men and transform them into a strong and mighty. Ezekiel 37:1 - 10
Him alone can send a new note and tunes into you. Come to Him and embrace Him today. He waiting for you with an open arm.
