Duct Tape Dad

James & his dad, Johnnie Croft.
I was preaching out of town on Father's Day, but I got to have dinner with my dad, Johnnie S. Croft, Jr., last night. His Father's Day present was a gift card for his favorite store, and a roll of duct tape.

Duct tape?!?!  Yes, "duct tape".

Properly applied, duct tape can fix or hold just about anything together.  That's the way Christian dads should be.  When a dad depends totally on the Lord and has the Word of God in his heart, he is just like duct tape.  He just seems to know how to properly apply the adhesive that can hold anything together, i.e. job, family, finances.

I thank the Lord for my "duct tape dad"!
