No matter how you celebrate, the day will revolve those who raised us — be it our biological fathers or those in our lives who have stepped up to the plate to be a dad when we needed them the most.

Fatherhood is also found in scripture. The Bible is filled with verses speaking to this role in a man's life and even relating it to the relationship with have with God.

The Story of the Prodigal Son

Jesus even tells a parable in the New Testament about the prodigal son. In this story, He speaks of a son who demanded to get his inheritance from his father early so he could leave home. His father reluctantly gives it to him. The son squanders his money on pointless things to the point that he is broke and living among the pigs. At this moment he decides to return home with his tail between his legs.

While most think the father would reject his son for what he did, the father in this story actually rejoices at the return of his son. He's so happy to have his son home again that he throws a big party to welcome him back into the fold.

It's a beautiful story of unconditional love and forgiveness. It's a story about fatherhood.
