Jim’s childhood was filled with men who failed at fatherhood. His biological dad was an alcoholic who abandoned him when he was 5, his stepfather left after Jim’s mother died, and his foster dad was unable to care for him. By Jim’s senior year of high school, he was living alone.
But by God’s grace, a better father figure finally came into Jim’s life when he was 15 — a football coach who sponsored Jim to attend a camp run by the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, where Jim was saved by God, and he learned to trust in Him as the perfect Father – One that is always there for His children.
“Fathers play an oversized role in our lives. In fact, it’s impossible to truly understand the meaning of life and the truth of Christianity without understanding that the center of the whole story of reality is one of eternal love and glory between a Father and His only Son Jesus Christ. That’s why it’s no coincidence that each one of us has a story regarding our father, and it is often one of great joy or unfortunate pain.” — Jim Daly, in “Show Me the Father”
