Passage: Malachi 1:6-8; 1 Timothy 5:8

God, the father of Israel was known to the Israelites by heart, not written on paper as found in these passages.
 
* Selection           :  Ex 4:22,
* Preservation        :  Gen 45:7
* Watchful guidance :  Ex 13: 21-22
 
Israel, in response, honorably made sacrifices to God according to the laws established for them. When Israel went into economic crises, sacrifices to God became a burden, gentiles were even doing better. God then questioned: if you recognize me as father and continue to sacrifice, ‘… then where is the honor in the sacrifices…?’
 
God was not asking for a payback but He, as a father, must not be toyed with    (Isaiah 42: 8). Today being Father’s day, why must we honour fathers?
 
After the creation of Adam and Eve, God has given the procreation mandate to man. Therefore Men deserve that honour. Though MEN appreciates the landmark birthday parties, Men must be celebrated more often. Behind every successful man, there is a woman hence as Men of this church, we appreciate our wives also.
 
Let the earth hear - that Presbyterian men are for Jesus Christ. The starting point of us as men is our evangelism and the maintenance of your honour (1 Tim 5:8). Let us live together with mutual respect in the home, everyone will grow one day.
 
Amen
