A Hero Among Us

A Hero Among Us

Did you know we have an SBS Dads Club?

I really enjoy being part of our Dads Club--it’s a great way to connect with other SBS dads and one way we extend our caring community to fathers. During the school year, members of our Dads Club get together for breakfast a few times on campus. These #SBSmoments are used for networking, sharing news, and hearing unique insights from different campus leaders. What I appreciate most about the SBS Dads Club is the devotional time designed to encourage and empower dads to lead their families well.     

I recently spoke at the final SBS Dads Club breakfast for the 2022-2023 school year. I talked about being a H.E.R.O. My grandfather was my hero. His legacy of faithfulness inspired me to become a man of courage, faith and principles. Heroes are important; we need them in our lives to inspire us to be a better version of ourselves.

Dads, be a H.E.R.O. for SBS, for your loved ones, and for your friends. Here's how: 

  • HONOR your spouse. Be an example of love and respect. 
    • Ephesians 4:2…Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love.
  • ENCOURAGE your children. Your words have the power to elevate or completely devastate. 
    • Romans 14:19…So then we pursue the things which make for peace and the building up of one another. 
  • RESPECT authority. By the time your children are 8-9 years old, they learn more from what they observe than what they are taught.  
    • Hebrews 13:17…Have confidence in your leaders and submit to their authority because they keep watch over you as those who must give an account. Do this so that their work will be a joy, not a burden, for that would be of no benefit to you.
  • OPEN opportunities. Carefully consider each opportunity; not all opportunities benefit your children.
    • Proverbs 3:5-6…Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways, submit to Him, and He will make your paths straight. 

WHAT NEXT? SBS Dads: Become a member of the SBS Dads Club. In August, when the next opportunity comes for you to join, do it! I’ll look forward to seeing you there next fall.
