The Power of a Father’s Words

November 10, 2010

I watched the interview Matt Lauer did with George W. Bush last night.  It was very insightful and if you didn’t get a chance to see it you need to watch it.  You can watch it here.

One moment really stood out to me as I watched.  Here was a man who has achieved the highest position in the land, and at age 64 was breaking down with emotion when recalling a note he received from his father years prior telling him how proud he was of him.  It was a very powerful example of the power of a father’s words.  A simple note of affirmation was so emotional for him, he couldn’t even read it.  As Lauer read the words, his eyes were filled with tears.

Fathers, we have the capacity and responsibility to bring life giving words to our children. This was a great example of the life-long impact words can have on our children’s lives.
