Dadís Hat

Amid the celebration, there was tragedy. It was the opening ceremonies of the 1992 Summer Olympic Games in Barcelona. One by one the teams entered the stadium and paraded around the track to the cheers of 65,000 people. But in one section of Olympic Stadium, shock and sadness fell as Peter Karnaugh, father of United States swimmer Ron Karnaugh, was stricken with a fatal heart attack.

Five days later, Ron showed up for his race wearing his dadís hat, which he carefully set aside before his competition began. Why the hat? It was the swimmerís tribute to his dad, whom he described as ďmy best friend.Ē The hat was one his dad had worn when they went fishing and did other things together. Wearing the hat was Ronís way of honoring his dad for standing beside him, encouraging him, and guiding him. When Ron dove into the water, he did so without his dadís presence but inspired by his memory.

On this Fatherís Day, there are many ways to honor our fathers, as Scripture commands us to do (Eph. 6:2). One way, even if theyíre no longer with us, is to show respect for the good values they taught us.

What can you do for your dad today to show him the kind of honor the Bible talks about?





Weíre thankful for our fathers, Lord,
Theyíre special gifts from You;
Help us to show we honor them
By what we say and do. óSper





The best fathers not only give us lifeó they teach us how to live.
