  • PASTOR MATT HAGEE: TODAY WE
  • 00:00:11.270 --> 00:00:14.270
  • CHOOSE THIS THEME OF SPORTS
  • 00:00:14.270 --> 00:00:15.280
  • BECAUSE THERE'S SO MANY
  • 00:00:15.280 --> 00:00:17.030
  • APPLICATIONS THAT COME FROM IT
  • 00:00:17.030 --> 00:00:18.280
  • THAT WE CAN APPLY
  • 00:00:18.280 --> 00:00:20.080
  • TO THE PURPOSE AND THE PLAN
  • 00:00:20.080 --> 00:00:21.180
  • THAT GOD HAS FOR FATHERS.
  • 00:00:21.180 --> 00:00:24.010
  • TODAY WE SET ASIDE THIS SERVICE
  • 00:00:24.010 --> 00:00:25.250
  • AND THIS MOMENT TO ENCOURAGE
  • 00:00:25.290 --> 00:00:28.290
  • SOME OF THE MOST IMPORTANT
  • 00:00:28.290 --> 00:00:29.280
  • PEOPLE ON THE PLANET TODAY,
  • 00:00:29.280 --> 00:00:32.120
  • DAD.
  • 00:00:32.120 --> 00:00:34.010
  • I BELIEVE THAT FATHERS ARE
  • 00:00:34.010 --> 00:00:36.020
  • INDEED THE MOST VALUABLE
  • 00:00:36.020 --> 00:00:37.190
  • PLAYERS ON THE HOME TEAM.
  • 00:00:37.190 --> 00:00:40.190
  • WHILE THEY'RE EVER MORE NEEDED;
  • 00:00:40.190 --> 00:00:42.080
  • THEY HAVE NEVER BEEN MORE
  • 00:00:42.080 --> 00:00:44.100
  • UNDER ATTACK.
  • 00:00:44.100 --> 00:00:45.210
  • LOOK AT THE CULTURE
  • 00:00:45.210 --> 00:00:46.110
  • THAT WE LIVE IN.
  • 00:00:46.110 --> 00:00:46.290
  • WATCH THE PROGRAMMING
  • 00:00:46.290 --> 00:00:48.020
  • THAT'S AVAILABLE ON TELEVISION.
  • 00:00:48.020 --> 00:00:49.240
  • LISTEN TO THE CONVERSATIONS,
  • 00:00:49.240 --> 00:00:51.080
  • AND DAD IS MARGINALIZED,
  • 00:00:51.080 --> 00:00:52.280
  • AND DAD IS PUSHED
  • 00:00:52.280 --> 00:00:53.290
  • TO THE BACK BURNER,
  • 00:00:53.290 --> 00:00:54.250
  • AND DAD IS THE BIG BUFFOON
  • 00:00:54.250 --> 00:00:56.270
  • IN THE ROOM.
  • 00:00:56.270 --> 00:00:58.180
  • HE'S NOT THE LEADER THAT GOD
  • 00:00:58.180 --> 00:01:00.130
  • CALLED HIM TO BE.
  • 00:01:00.130 --> 00:01:01.070
  • HE'S NOT THE PERSON THAT GOD
  • 00:01:01.070 --> 00:01:02.270
  • ORDAINED HIM TO BE.
  • 00:01:02.270 --> 00:01:04.000
  • HE'S NOT THE ONE IN TO WHOM GOD
  • 00:01:04.000 --> 00:01:06.110
  • HAS ENTRUSTED THE FUTURE.
  • 00:01:06.110 --> 00:01:08.230
  • BUT DAD,
  • 00:01:08.230 --> 00:01:09.140
  • IF YOU'RE HERE TODAY OR
  • 00:01:09.140 --> 00:01:10.140
  • YOU'RE WATCHING BY TELEVISION,
  • 00:01:10.140 --> 00:01:11.230
  • I WANT YOU TO KNOW WE NEED YOU.
  • 00:01:12.220 --> 00:01:15.220
  • YOUR CHILDREN NEED YOU.
  • 00:01:16.000 --> 00:01:19.000
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:01:19.000 --> 00:01:21.000
  • LET'S READ PSALM 127:1
  • 00:01:21.000 --> 00:01:23.180
  • THROUGH 5 TOGETHER.
  • 00:01:23.180 --> 00:01:24.170
  • IF YOU'RE THERE, SAY, AMEN.
  • 00:01:24.170 --> 00:01:25.290
  • [Amen.]
  • 00:01:25.290 --> 00:01:27.040
  • "UNLESS THE LORD
  • 00:01:27.040 --> 00:01:28.230
  • BUILDS THE HOUSE,
  • 00:01:28.230 --> 00:01:30.180
  • THEY LABOR IN VAIN
  • 00:01:30.180 --> 00:01:32.040
  • WHO BUILD IT.
  • 00:01:32.040 --> 00:01:33.120
  • UNLESS THE LORD GUARDS THE CITY,
  • 00:01:33.120 --> 00:01:36.080
  • THE WATCHMAN STAYS AWAKE
  • 00:01:36.080 --> 00:01:38.040
  • IN VAIN.
  • 00:01:38.040 --> 00:01:39.130
  • IT IS VAIN FOR YOU TO RISE UP
  • 00:01:39.130 --> 00:01:41.160
  • EARLY, TO SIT UP LATE,
  • 00:01:41.160 --> 00:01:43.270
  • TO EAT THE BREAD OF SORROWS;
  • 00:01:43.270 --> 00:01:46.130
  • FOR SO HE GIVES HIS BELOVED
  • 00:01:46.130 --> 00:01:48.200
  • SLEEP.
  • 00:01:48.200 --> 00:01:49.240
  • BUT CHILDREN ARE A HERITAGE
  • 00:01:50.100 --> 00:01:53.100
  • FROM THE LORD.
  • 00:01:53.100 --> 00:01:54.160
  • THE FRUIT OF THE WOMB
  • 00:01:54.160 --> 00:01:56.230
  • IS A REWARD.
  • 00:01:56.230 --> 00:01:58.090
  • LIKE ARROWS IN THE HAND
  • 00:01:58.090 --> 00:02:00.040
  • OF A WARRIOR,
  • 00:02:00.040 --> 00:02:01.050
  • SO ARE THE CHILDREN
  • 00:02:01.050 --> 00:02:02.220
  • OF ONE'S YOUTH.
  • 00:02:02.220 --> 00:02:04.130
  • HAPPY IS THE MAN WHO HAS
  • 00:02:04.130 --> 00:02:06.180
  • HIS QUIVER FULL OF THEM.
  • 00:02:06.180 --> 00:02:08.120
  • THEY SHALL NOT BE ASHAMED,
  • 00:02:08.120 --> 00:02:10.170
  • BUT SHALL SPEAK
  • 00:02:10.170 --> 00:02:11.190
  • WITH THEIR ENEMIES IN THE GATE."
  • 00:02:11.200 --> 00:02:14.200
  • HEAVENLY FATHER,
  • 00:02:14.200 --> 00:02:16.060
  • THANK YOU FOR YOUR WORD TODAY.
  • 00:02:16.060 --> 00:02:18.200
  • THANK YOU FOR THE LIGHT THAT IT

  • PROVIDES ON THE JOURNEY THAT WE
  • 00:02:20.180 --> 00:02:22.130
  • WALK IN THIS LIFE.
  • 00:02:22.130 --> 00:02:24.090
  • NOW OPEN OUR HEARTS TO HEAR AND

  • EVERY FATHER IN THIS SANCTUARY
  • 00:02:29.290 --> 00:02:32.130
  • WOULD BE ENCOURAGED,
  • 00:02:32.130 --> 00:02:33.270
  • IN THE MIGHTY NAME OF JESUS.
  • 00:02:33.270 --> 00:02:35.290
  • WE ALL SAID, PRAISE THE LORD.
  • 00:02:35.290 --> 00:02:38.050
  • [Praise the Lord!]
  • 00:02:38.050 --> 00:02:38.220
  • YOU MAY BE SEATED.
  • 00:02:38.220 --> 00:02:41.130

  • THEY NEED YOU TO SHOW THEM SOME

  • OF THE WORLD IS GREATER THAN

  • YOU SHOULD BEAR.
  • 00:03:53.050 --> 00:03:54.260
  • YOU NEED TO KNOW GOD DID NOT

  • INTEND FOR A MAN TO GO THROUGH

  • THIS LIFE AND CARRY THE LOAD
  • 00:03:57.170 --> 00:03:59.000
  • ON HIS OWN.
  • 00:03:59.000 --> 00:03:59.230
  • GOD WANTS TO CARRY IT FOR YOU

  • WE NEED YOU TO REMEMBER THAT
  • 00:04:04.150 --> 00:04:05.180
  • THE HOME TEAM IS THE IMPORTANT
  • 00:04:05.180 --> 00:04:08.010
  • TEAM.
  • 00:04:08.010 --> 00:04:08.250
  • YOUR HOME TEAM IS NOT
  • 00:04:08.250 --> 00:04:10.230
  • THE PEOPLE YOU WORK WITH.
  • 00:04:10.230 --> 00:04:13.060
  • YOUR HOME TEAM IS NOT THE GUYS
  • 00:04:13.060 --> 00:04:15.020
  • YOU USED TO PLAY FRIDAY NIGHT
  • 00:04:15.020 --> 00:04:16.260
  • LIGHTS WITH.
  • 00:04:16.260 --> 00:04:18.230
  • YOUR HOME TEAM IS THE WIFE AND
  • 00:04:18.230 --> 00:04:21.040
  • THE CHILDREN THAT GOD GAVE YOU.
  • 00:04:21.050 --> 00:04:24.050
  • THAT'S THE MOST IMPORTANT TEAM.
  • 00:04:24.050 --> 00:04:26.280
  • TODAY I'M WEARING THE COLORS
  • 00:04:26.280 --> 00:04:28.110
  • OF CORNERSTONE WARRIORS.
  • 00:04:28.110 --> 00:04:30.050
  • WHY?
  • 00:04:30.050 --> 00:04:30.190
  • BECAUSE THAT'S WHERE MY KIDS
  • 00:04:30.190 --> 00:04:32.050
  • GO TO SCHOOL.
  • 00:04:32.050 --> 00:04:33.120
  • THESE ARE THE COLORS THEY WEAR.
  • 00:04:33.120 --> 00:04:35.260
  • IT'S AT CORNERSTONE CHRISTIAN
  • 00:04:35.260 --> 00:04:37.020
  • SCHOOLS THAT MY CHILDREN
  • 00:04:37.020 --> 00:04:38.190
  • ARE LEARNING THE FUNDAMENTALS
  • 00:04:38.190 --> 00:04:40.210
  • OF WHAT IT TAKES TO WIN IN LIFE.
  • 00:04:40.210 --> 00:04:43.140
  • IT'S NOT JUST AT SCHOOL;
  • 00:04:43.140 --> 00:04:44.170
  • IT'S ALSO AT HOME.
  • 00:04:44.170 --> 00:04:45.240
  • BUT AS A FATHER,
  • 00:04:45.240 --> 00:04:46.200
  • I THANK GOD FOR A SCHOOL
  • 00:04:46.200 --> 00:04:48.170
  • THAT COMPLIMENTS MY PARENTING,
  • 00:04:48.170 --> 00:04:50.150
  • DOES NOT COMPETE WITH
  • 00:04:50.150 --> 00:04:52.030
  • MY PARENTING.
  • 00:04:52.030 --> 00:04:53.080
  • WHY?
  • 00:04:53.080 --> 00:04:54.080
  • BECAUSE MY FAMILY
  • 00:04:54.080 --> 00:04:55.190
  • IS MY FRANCHISE.
  • 00:04:55.190 --> 00:04:58.020
  • MY KIDS AND MY GRAND KIDS,
  • 00:04:58.020 --> 00:04:59.220
  • THEY'RE MY DYNASTY.
  • 00:04:59.220 --> 00:05:02.140
  • THEY'RE THE ONES THAT ARE GOING
  • 00:05:02.140 --> 00:05:03.130
  • TO TELL THE WORLD WHETHER
  • 00:05:03.130 --> 00:05:04.140
  • OR NOT I WAS AN ADEQUATE COACH
  • 00:05:04.140 --> 00:05:06.240
  • IN THIS LIFE.
  • 00:05:06.240 --> 00:05:09.120
  • THEY'RE THE ONES THAT WHEN THEY
  • 00:05:09.120 --> 00:05:10.120
  • LEAVE MY HOUSE,
  • 00:05:10.120 --> 00:05:11.190
  • THEY'RE GOING TO ENGAGE IN THE
  • 00:05:11.190 --> 00:05:13.010
  • WINNER-TAKE-ALL GAME OF LIFE
  • 00:05:13.010 --> 00:05:15.020
  • WHERE WINNERS AND LOSERS ARE
  • 00:05:15.020 --> 00:05:16.290
  • THE ONES WHO UNDERSTAND SUCCESS
  • 00:05:16.290 --> 00:05:19.020
  • AND FAILURE.
  • 00:05:19.020 --> 00:05:21.030
  • YOU NEED TO KNOW, DAD,
  • 00:05:21.030 --> 00:05:22.120
  • YOU HAVE A VERY IMPORTANT ROLE
  • 00:05:22.120 --> 00:05:25.030
  • TO PREPARE YOUR FAMILY WITH THE

  • FUNDAMENTALS OF WHAT IT TAKES
  • 00:05:26.180 --> 00:05:28.050
  • TO SUCCEED WITH THE TREMENDOUS

  • CHALLENGES THAT THEY'RE GOING

  • TO FACE IN THIS WORLD THAT
  • 00:05:31.000 --> 00:05:32.220
  • IS NOT FAIR.
  • 00:05:32.220 --> 00:05:35.140
  • WE DO EVERYTHING WE CAN TO TRY
  • 00:05:35.140 --> 00:05:37.030
  • AND MAKE EVERYTHING FAIR.
  • 00:05:37.030 --> 00:05:38.190
  • WE DON'T WANT ANY WINNERS
  • 00:05:38.190 --> 00:05:39.240
  • OR LOSERS.
  • 00:05:39.240 --> 00:05:40.160
  • WE DON'T WANT ANYBODY TO BE
  • 00:05:40.160 --> 00:05:42.030
  • RECOGNIZED ABOVE ALL OF

  • THEIR PEERS.
  • 00:05:43.100 --> 00:05:44.030
  • BUT THAT MIGHT BE SOMETHING
  • 00:05:44.030 --> 00:05:45.130
  • THAT IS IN A POLITICALLY
  • 00:05:45.130 --> 00:05:46.140
  • CORRECT CULTURE,
  • 00:05:46.140 --> 00:05:47.110
  • BUT THAT IS NOT
  • 00:05:47.110 --> 00:05:48.190
  • IN THE REAL WORLD.
  • 00:05:48.190 --> 00:05:49.290
  • IT'S WONDERFUL TO CHEER
  • 00:05:49.290 --> 00:05:51.050

  • THROW IN CELEBRATION
  • 00:06:10.050 --> 00:06:11.090
  • OF THE VICTORY;

  • VERY SOON THAT VICTORY IS GONE,
  • 00:06:12.060 --> 00:06:14.240

  • TO WIN.
  • 00:06:35.000 --> 00:06:35.150
  • YOU'VE GOT TO PREPARE THEM FOR
  • 00:06:35.150 --> 00:06:36.180
  • THE CHALLENGES THEY'LL FACE.
  • 00:06:36.180 --> 00:06:37.250
  • YOU'VE GOT TO BUILD A TEAM OF
  • 00:06:37.250 --> 00:06:40.070
  • WARRIORS AT HOME THAT WILL BE
  • 00:06:40.070 --> 00:06:42.230
  • WORLD CHANGERS WHEN THEY LEAVE.

  • 00:06:52.130 --> 00:06:53.050
  • A GREAT FAMILY,
  • 00:06:53.050 --> 00:06:54.000
  • YOU'VE GOT TO KNOW THAT
  • 00:06:54.000 --> 00:06:55.040
  • GREATNESS COMES FROM ONE SOURCE
  • 00:06:55.040 --> 00:06:57.080
  • AND ONE SOURCE ALONE,
  • 00:06:57.080 --> 00:06:58.110
  • AND THAT IS GOD ALMIGHTY.
  • 00:06:58.110 --> 00:07:01.030
  • "UNLESS THE LORD BUILD
  • 00:07:01.030 --> 00:07:03.000
  • THE HOUSE,
  • 00:07:03.000 --> 00:07:03.290
  • THEY LABOR IN VAIN
  • 00:07:03.290 --> 00:07:05.230
  • WHO BUILD IT."
  • 00:07:05.230 --> 00:07:06.100
  • DAD, YOUR LIFE WILL NOT WIN
  • 00:07:06.100 --> 00:07:08.190
  • UNLESS GOD IS THE FOUNDATION
  • 00:07:08.190 --> 00:07:10.020
  • OF LIFE.
  • 00:07:10.020 --> 00:07:10.240
  • YOUR CHILDREN WILL HAVE
  • 00:07:10.240 --> 00:07:11.250
  • NO BASIS UNLESS GOD
  • 00:07:11.250 --> 00:07:13.220
  • IS THE FOUNDATION OF THE HOME.
  • 00:07:13.220 --> 00:07:15.030
  • YOUR MARRIAGE WILL NOT OVERCOME
  • 00:07:15.030 --> 00:07:16.180
  • CHALLENGES UNLESS GOD
  • 00:07:16.180 --> 00:07:18.160
  • IS THE ANCHOR THAT YOU BUILD
  • 00:07:18.160 --> 00:07:20.080
  • YOUR MARRIAGE UPON.
  • 00:07:20.080 --> 00:07:21.050
  • YOUR FAMILY HAS NO FOUNDATION
  • 00:07:21.050 --> 00:07:23.190
  • UNLESS THE LORD BUILD THE HOUSE.
  • 00:07:25.110 --> 00:07:28.110
  • NOW LISTEN TO THE NEXT WORDS,
  • 00:07:28.110 --> 00:07:30.160
  • "THEY LABOR..."
  • 00:07:30.160 --> 00:07:31.280
  • SAY THAT WITH ME.
  • 00:07:31.280 --> 00:07:33.030
  • "THEY LABOR..."
  • 00:07:33.030 --> 00:07:35.070
  • THE POINT IS VERY CLEAR;
  • 00:07:35.070 --> 00:07:36.160
  • IN LIFE, YOU WILL LABOR.
  • 00:07:36.260 --> 00:07:39.260
  • AND THAT'S AN IMPORTANT LESSON
  • 00:07:39.260 --> 00:07:41.050
  • FOR DAD TO TEACH TO HIS FAMILY.
  • 00:07:41.230 --> 00:07:44.230
  • YOU CANNOT GET OUT OF LIFE
  • 00:07:44.230 --> 00:07:46.130
  • WITHOUT LABOR.
  • 00:07:46.130 --> 00:07:47.020
  • I KNOW SOME PEOPLE ARE WORKING
  • 00:07:47.020 --> 00:07:48.110
  • REALLY HARD AT HARDLY WORKING.
  • 00:07:48.110 --> 00:07:51.060
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:07:51.060 --> 00:07:51.150
  • DAD, IF YOU TEACH YOUR CHILDREN
  • 00:07:51.150 --> 00:07:52.150
  • ANYTHING,
  • 00:07:52.150 --> 00:07:53.080
  • TEACH THEM THAT THERE IS
  • 00:07:53.080 --> 00:07:55.030
  • SOMETHING CALLED A WORK ETHIC.
  • 00:07:55.250 --> 00:07:58.250
  • THIS WORLD HAS AN OVERWHELMING
  • 00:07:58.250 --> 00:08:00.230
  • LACK OF REAL WORK ETHIC.
  • 00:08:01.250 --> 00:08:04.250
  • THERE IS A GENERATION
  • 00:08:04.250 --> 00:08:06.080
  • OF CAPABLE YOUNG PEOPLE,
  • 00:08:06.080 --> 00:08:07.260
  • INTELLIGENT YOUNG PEOPLE,
  • 00:08:07.260 --> 00:08:09.120
  • THAT ARE INSULTED BY THE IDEA
  • 00:08:09.120 --> 00:08:11.200
  • THAT THEY'RE GOING TO HAVE
  • 00:08:11.200 --> 00:08:12.110
  • TO PUT OUT EFFORT BEFORE
  • 00:08:12.110 --> 00:08:13.230
  • ACCOMPLISHMENT IS ACHIEVED.
  • 00:08:13.230 --> 00:08:16.210
  • DON'T WAIT UNTIL YOUR SON
  • 00:08:16.210 --> 00:08:18.000
  • OR YOUR DAUGHTER CROSS
  • 00:08:18.000 --> 00:08:18.270
  • THE GRADUATION LINE TO INTRODUCE
  • 00:08:18.270 --> 00:08:20.260
  • THEM TO W-O-R-K.
  • 00:08:20.260 --> 00:08:23.070
  • I KNOW IT'S FOUR LETTERS,
  • 00:08:23.070 --> 00:08:24.140
  • BUT IT'S NOT A FOUL WORD.
  • 00:08:24.140 --> 00:08:27.000
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:08:27.000 --> 00:08:27.120
  • TEACH THEM HOW TO TAKE OUT
  • 00:08:27.120 --> 00:08:28.180
  • THE TRASH.
  • 00:08:28.180 --> 00:08:29.130
  • TEACH THEM HOW TO DO THE DISHES.
  • 00:08:29.130 --> 00:08:31.100
  • TEACH THEM HOW TO MAKE
  • 00:08:31.100 --> 00:08:32.140
  • THEIR BED.
  • 00:08:32.140 --> 00:08:33.050
  • TEACH THEM HOW TO DO
  • 00:08:33.050 --> 00:08:34.110
  • THE LAUNDRY.
  • 00:08:34.110 --> 00:08:35.010
  • TEACH THEM HOW TO CUT THE YARD.
  • 00:08:35.010 --> 00:08:37.270
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:08:37.270 --> 00:08:39.070
  • IN KEEPING WITH THE THEME
  • 00:08:39.070 --> 00:08:40.090
  • FOR THE DAY OF SPORTS,
  • 00:08:40.090 --> 00:08:41.140
  • I TOOK THE TIME TO LOOK THROUGH
  • 00:08:41.140 --> 00:08:43.100
  • SEVERAL STATISTICS,
  • 00:08:43.100 --> 00:08:44.130
  • AND SEVERAL STORIES,
  • 00:08:44.130 --> 00:08:45.190
  • AND SEVERAL ARTICLES ABOUT
  • 00:08:45.190 --> 00:08:47.200
  • SOME OF THE GREATEST THAT EVER
  • 00:08:47.200 --> 00:08:48.270
  • COACHED OR PLAYED THE GAME.
  • 00:08:48.270 --> 00:08:50.060
  • I LOOKED AT PROFESSIONAL
  • 00:08:50.060 --> 00:08:51.080
  • FOOTBALL.
  • 00:08:51.080 --> 00:08:51.240
  • I LOOKED AT BASEBALL.
  • 00:08:51.240 --> 00:08:52.250
  • I LOOKED AT BASKETBALL.
  • 00:08:52.250 --> 00:08:54.000
  • I LOOKED AT GOLF.
  • 00:08:54.000 --> 00:08:55.000
  • I LOOKED AT TENNIS AND ALL
  • 00:08:55.000 --> 00:08:56.120
  • OF THE DIFFERENT THINGS WHERE WE
  • 00:08:56.120 --> 00:08:57.230
  • WOULD IDENTIFY GREAT ATHLETES.
  • 00:08:57.230 --> 00:09:00.120
  • THE THING THAT MADE THESE
  • 00:09:00.120 --> 00:09:01.070
  • INDIVIDUALS HALL OF FAME,
  • 00:09:01.070 --> 00:09:02.280
  • ALL PRO-CAPABLE ATHLETES IS
  • 00:09:02.280 --> 00:09:05.250
  • THE FACT THAT RATHER THAN BEING
  • 00:09:05.250 --> 00:09:06.270
  • EXTRAORDINARILY GIFTED
  • 00:09:06.270 --> 00:09:08.030
  • AT ONE THING;
  • 00:09:08.030 --> 00:09:09.070
  • THEY WERE EXTRAORDINARILY
  • 00:09:09.070 --> 00:09:11.010
  • DILIGENT AT DOING
  • 00:09:11.010 --> 00:09:12.050
  • THE FUNDAMENTALS.
  • 00:09:12.050 --> 00:09:14.230
  • THEY MASTERED THE BASICS
  • 00:09:14.230 --> 00:09:16.150
  • OF THEIR SPORT AND THEY JUST
  • 00:09:16.150 --> 00:09:18.080
  • EXECUTED IT OVER, AND OVER,
  • 00:09:18.080 --> 00:09:20.220
  • AND OVER, AND OVER AGAIN.
  • 00:09:20.220 --> 00:09:23.180
  • AND I GOT EXCITED WHEN I FOUND
  • 00:09:23.180 --> 00:09:24.260
  • THAT OUT,
  • 00:09:24.260 --> 00:09:25.120
  • BECAUSE I BELIEVE THAT
  • 00:09:25.120 --> 00:09:27.020
  • THE FUNDAMENTALS OF FATHERHOOD
  • 00:09:27.020 --> 00:09:28.210
  • ARE SOMETHING THAT
  • 00:09:28.210 --> 00:09:29.170
  • EVERY INDIVIDUAL,
  • 00:09:29.170 --> 00:09:31.010
  • WHO HAS THE PRIVILEGE OF BEING
  • 00:09:31.010 --> 00:09:32.120
  • A DAD, CAN DO.
  • 00:09:32.120 --> 00:09:34.290
  • I DON'T BELIEVE THAT THERE ARE
  • 00:09:34.290 --> 00:09:35.290
  • GREAT DADS AND NOT GREAT DADS.
  • 00:09:35.290 --> 00:09:38.180
  • I BELIEVE THAT
  • 00:09:38.180 --> 00:09:39.090
  • THERE ARE FATHERS,
  • 00:09:39.090 --> 00:09:40.020
  • WHO ARE DILIGENT AND FATHERS
  • 00:09:40.020 --> 00:09:41.230
  • WHO NEED TO BE DILIGENT.
  • 00:09:41.230 --> 00:09:43.140
  • AND THE GOOD NEWS IS FOR
  • 00:09:43.140 --> 00:09:44.130
  • FATHERS IS THAT GOD HAS SOME
  • 00:09:44.130 --> 00:09:46.220
  • FUNDAMENTALS THAT HE WANTS YOU
  • 00:09:46.220 --> 00:09:48.170
  • TO ACCOMPLISH.
  • 00:09:48.170 --> 00:09:49.280
  • THE FIRST FUNDAMENTAL IS YOU'VE
  • 00:09:49.280 --> 00:09:51.170
  • GOT TO READ THE PLAY BOOK.
  • 00:09:51.170 --> 00:09:53.280
  • YOU'VE GOT TO KNOW
  • 00:09:53.280 --> 00:09:54.290
  • WHAT THIS SAYS.
  • 00:09:54.290 --> 00:09:56.050
  • YOU CANNOT ACHIEVE ANYTHING
  • 00:09:56.050 --> 00:09:58.250
  • WELL IN SPORTS UNLESS YOU ARE
  • 00:09:58.250 --> 00:10:00.250
  • ON THE SAME PAGE
  • 00:10:00.250 --> 00:10:02.070
  • AS THE GENERAL MANAGER.
  • 00:10:02.070 --> 00:10:04.190
  • AND THIS IS THE PLAY BOOK
  • 00:10:04.190 --> 00:10:06.150
  • FOR THE GENERAL MANAGER
  • 00:10:06.150 --> 00:10:07.140
  • OF THE UNIVERSE.
  • 00:10:07.140 --> 00:10:09.240
  • SO THERE'S TWO BASIC
  • 00:10:09.240 --> 00:10:10.250
  • FUNDAMENTALS THAT GOD WANTS YOU
  • 00:10:10.250 --> 00:10:12.150
  • TO KNOW TODAY, FATHERS,
  • 00:10:12.150 --> 00:10:13.170
  • AND GOD WANTS YOU TO DO.
  • 00:10:13.170 --> 00:10:14.260
  • THE FIRST FUNDAMENTAL IS
  • 00:10:14.260 --> 00:10:16.070
  • HE WANTS YOU TO LOVE.
  • 00:10:16.070 --> 00:10:17.270
  • SAY THAT WORD WITH ME, LOVE.
  • 00:10:17.270 --> 00:10:20.190
  • AND THE SECOND FUNDAMENTAL IS
  • 00:10:20.190 --> 00:10:22.010
  • HE WANTS YOU TO LEAD.
  • 00:10:22.010 --> 00:10:24.020
  • SAY THAT WORD WITH ME, LEAD.
  • 00:10:24.020 --> 00:10:26.180
  • LET'S START WITH THE
  • 00:10:26.180 --> 00:10:27.100
  • FUNDAMENTAL OF LOVE.
  • 00:10:27.100 --> 00:10:29.060
  • THE FIRST THING THAT HE WANTS
  • 00:10:29.060 --> 00:10:30.080
  • YOU TO DO IS LOVE THE LORD
  • 00:10:30.080 --> 00:10:31.230
  • YOUR GOD WITH ALL OF YOUR HEART,
  • 00:10:31.230 --> 00:10:33.140
  • WITH ALL OF YOUR SOUL,
  • 00:10:33.140 --> 00:10:34.230
  • WITH ALL OF YOUR MIND,
  • 00:10:34.230 --> 00:10:36.040
  • AND WITH ALL OF YOUR STRENGTH.
  • 00:10:36.040 --> 00:10:37.250
  • DAD, YOU'VE GOT TO LOVE THE LORD
  • 00:10:37.250 --> 00:10:39.130
  • IN SUCH AN OUTLOUD WAY
  • 00:10:39.130 --> 00:10:41.090
  • THAT YOUR KIDS WILL LEARN
  • 00:10:41.090 --> 00:10:42.190
  • TO LOVE HIM TOO.
  • 00:10:42.190 --> 00:10:44.100
  • THEY'VE GOT TO SEE YOU READ THE
  • 00:10:44.100 --> 00:10:45.260
  • WORD AND APPLY IT TO YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:10:45.260 --> 00:10:47.250
  • THEY'VE GOT TO HEAR YOU PRAY
  • 00:10:47.250 --> 00:10:49.140
  • YOUR PRAYERS AND GIVE GOD
  • 00:10:49.140 --> 00:10:50.250
  • THANKS WHEN THEY'RE ANSWERED.
  • 00:10:50.250 --> 00:10:52.020
  • THEY'VE GOT TO WATCH YOU COME
  • 00:10:52.020 --> 00:10:53.180
  • TO THE HOUSE OF GOD AND LIFT
  • 00:10:53.180 --> 00:10:54.260
  • YOUR HANDS AND PRAISE THE LORD,
  • 00:10:54.260 --> 00:10:56.200
  • SO THAT THEY'LL BEGIN TO HUNGER
  • 00:10:56.200 --> 00:10:58.070
  • AND THIRST AFTER RIGHTEOUSNESS,
  • 00:10:58.070 --> 00:10:59.270
  • BECAUSE THE FIRST GOD THAT
  • 00:10:59.270 --> 00:11:01.140
  • THEY'LL EVER KNOW IS THE ONE
  • 00:11:01.140 --> 00:11:03.010
  • YOU INTRODUCE THEM TO.
  • 00:11:03.010 --> 00:11:04.180
  • GOD EXPECTS EVERY MAN TO LEAD.
  • 00:11:04.180 --> 00:11:06.260
  • THE BIBLE SAYS THAT THE HEAD
  • 00:11:06.260 --> 00:11:08.000
  • OF THE WIFE IS THE HUSBAND
  • 00:11:08.000 --> 00:11:09.210
  • JUST AS CHRIST IS THE HEAD
  • 00:11:09.210 --> 00:11:10.290
  • OF THE CHURCH.
  • 00:11:10.290 --> 00:11:12.290
  • DAD, YOU NEED TO KNOW
  • 00:11:12.290 --> 00:11:14.010
  • THAT THE THING THAT QUALIFIES
  • 00:11:14.010 --> 00:11:15.100
  • YOU TO LEAD IS YOUR ABILITY
  • 00:11:15.100 --> 00:11:17.050
  • TO FOLLOW.
  • 00:11:17.050 --> 00:11:19.140
  • IF YOU ARE FOLLOWING CHRIST,
  • 00:11:19.140 --> 00:11:21.030
  • YOU'RE QUALIFIED TO LEAD,
  • 00:11:21.280 --> 00:11:24.280
  • BECAUSE EVERY GREAT COACH
  • 00:11:24.280 --> 00:11:26.160
  • IS ALWAYS COACHABLE.
  • 00:11:27.100 --> 00:11:30.100
  • HE NEVER STOPS BEING A STUDENT
  • 00:11:30.100 --> 00:11:32.000
  • OF THE GAME.
  • 00:11:32.000 --> 00:11:32.240
  • AND AS A FATHER,
  • 00:11:32.240 --> 00:11:33.210
  • YOU WILL NEVER STOP BEING
  • 00:11:33.210 --> 00:11:35.070
  • A STUDENT OF THE GAME OF LIFE.
  • 00:11:35.070 --> 00:11:37.290
  • THIS IS WHY HEBREWS TELLS US,
  • 00:11:37.290 --> 00:11:39.120
  • "LOOKING UNTO JESUS,
  • 00:11:39.120 --> 00:11:40.230
  • THE AUTHOR AND THE FINISHER
  • 00:11:40.230 --> 00:11:41.270
  • OF OUR FAITH."
  • 00:11:41.270 --> 00:11:43.070
  • THAT MEANS THAT WE LOOK TO HIM
  • 00:11:43.070 --> 00:11:44.220
  • BECAUSE HE IS OUR EXAMPLE.
  • 00:11:44.220 --> 00:11:46.150
  • WE ARE TO DO WHAT HE DID.
  • 00:11:46.150 --> 00:11:49.110
  • WHEN JESUS WAS ON THIS EARTH,
  • 00:11:49.110 --> 00:11:50.270
  • THE WAY THAT HE TAUGHT HIS
  • 00:11:50.270 --> 00:11:51.280
  • DISCIPLES WAS SIMPLY BY SHOWING
  • 00:11:51.280 --> 00:11:54.050
  • THEM WHAT TO DO.
  • 00:11:54.050 --> 00:11:55.050
  • HE DIDN'T TELL THEM TO PRAY;
  • 00:11:55.050 --> 00:11:56.200
  • HE SHOWED THEM TO PRAY.
  • 00:11:56.200 --> 00:11:58.240
  • HE DIDN'T TELL THEM TO MINISTER;
  • 00:11:58.240 --> 00:12:00.140
  • HE SHOWED THEM WHAT MINISTRY
  • 00:12:00.140 --> 00:12:01.260
  • LOOKED LIKE.
  • 00:12:01.260 --> 00:12:03.100
  • AND THEN THEY WENT
  • 00:12:03.100 --> 00:12:04.010
  • AND DID WHAT THEY SAW.
  • 00:12:04.010 --> 00:12:06.240
  • SO THE KIND OF LEADERSHIP
  • 00:12:06.240 --> 00:12:08.000
  • THAT GOD WANTS YOU TO HAVE WITH
  • 00:12:08.000 --> 00:12:09.080
  • YOUR FAMILY IS THE KIND
  • 00:12:09.080 --> 00:12:10.170
  • OF LEADERSHIP THAT LEADS
  • 00:12:10.170 --> 00:12:12.070
  • BY EXAMPLE.
  • 00:12:12.070 --> 00:12:14.220
  • GOD WANTS YOU TO LEAD
  • 00:12:14.220 --> 00:12:15.250
  • BY THE EXAMPLE OF GUARDING
  • 00:12:15.250 --> 00:12:17.290
  • YOUR FAMILY.
  • 00:12:17.290 --> 00:12:19.110
  • HE LOOKS AT YOU
  • 00:12:19.110 --> 00:12:20.060
  • AS THE PROTECTOR.
  • 00:12:20.070 --> 00:12:23.070
  • NOW THAT JOB 50 YEARS AGO USED
  • 00:12:23.070 --> 00:12:24.290
  • TO BE PRETTY EASY.
  • 00:12:24.290 --> 00:12:26.220
  • ALL YOU HAD TO DO TO PROTECT
  • 00:12:26.220 --> 00:12:27.200
  • THE FAMILY 50 YEARS AGO WAS

  • LOCK THE GATE AND LOAD THE GUN.
  • 00:12:29.010 --> 00:12:30.180
  • EVERYTHING WAS FINE.
  • 00:12:30.180 --> 00:12:32.100

  • FIFTY YEARS AGO,
  • 00:14:19.260 --> 00:14:20.160

  • TELEVISION NETWORK,

  • WHICH MEANS THAT, DAD,
  • 00:14:29.110 --> 00:14:30.080
  • YOU'VE GOT TO PAY ATTENTION TO
  • 00:14:30.080 --> 00:14:32.000
  • EVERYTHING YOUR KIDS ARE DOING
  • 00:14:32.000 --> 00:14:33.270
  • SO THAT YOU CAN GUARD THEM,
  • 00:14:33.270 --> 00:14:35.210

  • 00:14:35.210 --> 00:14:37.050
  • TO LEAD THEM.
  • 00:14:37.050 --> 00:14:39.010
  • NOT ONLY DO YOU GUARD THEM,
  • 00:14:39.010 --> 00:14:40.120
  • BUT YOU GUIDE THEM.
  • 00:14:40.160 --> 00:14:43.160
  • GUIDANCE REQUIRES THAT YOU HAVE
  • 00:14:43.190 --> 00:14:46.190
  • A PRESENCE OF DIRECTION
  • 00:14:46.190 --> 00:14:49.030
  • IN THEIR LIFE.
  • 00:14:49.030 --> 00:14:51.120
  • THERE ARE A LOT OF DADS
  • 00:14:51.120 --> 00:14:52.120
  • THAT CHOOSE THE ROLE OF,
  • 00:14:52.120 --> 00:14:53.170
  • I'M JUST GOING TO LET THE KIDS
  • 00:14:53.170 --> 00:14:54.220
  • CHOOSE FOR THEMSELVES.
  • 00:14:54.220 --> 00:14:55.280
  • THAT'S NOT WHAT'S INTENDED.
  • 00:14:56.250 --> 00:14:59.250
  • YOU GUIDE THEM
  • 00:14:59.250 --> 00:15:02.010
  • IN THEIR DECISIONS.
  • 00:15:02.010 --> 00:15:04.290
  • ONE OF THE CHALLENGES THAT
  • 00:15:04.290 --> 00:15:05.250
  • HAPPENS WHENEVER YOU HEAR
  • 00:15:05.250 --> 00:15:07.000
  • MESSAGES LIKE THIS IS
  • 00:15:07.000 --> 00:15:08.040
  • THAT THERE'S TWO CHOICES.
  • 00:15:08.040 --> 00:15:09.150
  • SOME MEN LOOK BACK
  • 00:15:09.150 --> 00:15:10.250
  • AT THE CHILDHOOD THAT THEY HAD
  • 00:15:10.250 --> 00:15:12.040
  • AND THE FATHER THAT RAISED THEM,
  • 00:15:12.040 --> 00:15:13.200
  • AND OTHERS LOOK FORWARD.
  • 00:15:13.200 --> 00:15:16.100
  • MEN, I UNDERSTAND
  • 00:15:16.100 --> 00:15:17.110
  • THAT NOT EVERYBODY HAD
  • 00:15:17.110 --> 00:15:18.210
  • A GREAT EXAMPLE FOR A DAD.
  • 00:15:18.210 --> 00:15:20.060
  • BUT THAT DOESN'T MEAN THAT YOU
  • 00:15:20.060 --> 00:15:21.060
  • CAN'T BE ONE.
  • 00:15:21.060 --> 00:15:22.210
  • YOU HAVE A HEAVENLY FATHER,
  • 00:15:22.210 --> 00:15:23.250
  • WHO WAS A FABULOUS EXAMPLE.
  • 00:15:23.250 --> 00:15:25.170
  • HIS WORD IS TRUTH.
  • 00:15:25.170 --> 00:15:26.220
  • AND THE TRUTH OF HIS WORD
  • 00:15:26.220 --> 00:15:27.210
  • SIMPLY STATES THAT ALL THINGS
  • 00:15:27.210 --> 00:15:29.280
  • BECOME NEW TO THOSE
  • 00:15:29.280 --> 00:15:31.020
  • WHO ARE IN CHRIST JESUS.
  • 00:15:31.020 --> 00:15:33.050
  • THAT MEANS THAT WHATEVER
  • 00:15:33.050 --> 00:15:34.020
  • HAPPENED IN YOUR LIFE
  • 00:15:34.020 --> 00:15:35.080
  • BEFORE YOU CAME TO THE CROSS,
  • 00:15:35.080 --> 00:15:36.160
  • IT ALL CHANGED RIGHT AFTER THAT,
  • 00:15:36.160 --> 00:15:38.200
  • AND YOU CAN BECOME THE MAN
  • 00:15:38.200 --> 00:15:40.000
  • OF GOD THAT HE CALLED YOU TO BE
  • 00:15:40.000 --> 00:15:41.260
  • REGARDLESS OF WHAT YESTERDAY
  • 00:15:41.260 --> 00:15:43.050
  • HAD IN IT.
  • 00:15:43.050 --> 00:15:45.030
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:15:45.030 --> 00:15:46.250
  • AND YOU SAY, "WELL,
  • 00:15:46.250 --> 00:15:47.270
  • THAT'S EASY FOR YOU TO SAY,

  • LET ME TELL YOU,
  • 00:15:51.040 --> 00:15:52.250
  • YESTERDAY IS SOMETHING EVERYONE
  • 00:15:53.040 --> 00:15:56.040
  • HAS GOT TO DECIDE TO GET OVER.
  • 00:15:56.040 --> 00:15:58.260
  • YOU CAN SHRUG YOUR SHOULDERS
  • 00:15:58.260 --> 00:15:59.290
  • AND SAY, "DAD DIDN'T HUG ME,
  • 00:15:59.290 --> 00:16:01.140
  • SO I DON'T KNOW HOW TO HUG
  • 00:16:01.140 --> 00:16:02.080
  • MY KIDS."
  • 00:16:02.080 --> 00:16:02.270
  • OR YOU CAN HUG YOURS
  • 00:16:02.270 --> 00:16:03.210
  • WITH EVERYTHING YOU'VE GOT.

  • THAT FORGIVENESS IS THE KEY
  • 00:16:07.270 --> 00:16:09.110
  • THAT UNLOCKS DOORS
  • 00:16:09.110 --> 00:16:11.040
  • AND BUILDS BRIDGES;
  • 00:16:11.040 --> 00:16:13.250
  • AND THAT THE WORST THING THAT
  • 00:16:13.250 --> 00:16:14.290
  • THEY'LL EVER DO IS HOLD
  • 00:16:14.290 --> 00:16:16.180
  • A GRUDGE.
  • 00:16:16.180 --> 00:16:18.240
  • GRUDGES KILL FAMILIES.
  • 00:16:19.080 --> 00:16:22.080
  • GRUDGES DISSOLVE GENERATIONS
  • 00:16:22.080 --> 00:16:25.040
  • OF TRUST.
  • 00:16:25.040 --> 00:16:27.250
  • YOU SAY, "WELL AGAIN,
  • 00:16:27.250 --> 00:16:28.140
  • THAT'S EASY FOR YOU TO SAY."
  • 00:16:28.140 --> 00:16:30.180
  • I WANT TO SHOW YOU A PICTURE
  • 00:16:30.180 --> 00:16:31.200
  • OF SOME PRETTY IMPORTANT MEN
  • 00:16:31.200 --> 00:16:33.100
  • IN MY LIFE.
  • 00:16:33.100 --> 00:16:35.290
  • STANDING NEXT TO THIS HANDSOME
  • 00:16:35.290 --> 00:16:37.090
  • EIGHT YEAR OLD --
  • 00:16:37.090 --> 00:16:38.250
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:16:38.250 --> 00:16:41.190
  • -- IS OBVIOUSLY MY FATHER.
  • 00:16:41.190 --> 00:16:44.040
  • AND THIS IS MY GRANDFATHER.
  • 00:16:44.040 --> 00:16:46.180
  • THAT PICTURE OF HIM WAS
  • 00:16:46.180 --> 00:16:47.200
  • IN OCTOBER OF 1987,
  • 00:16:47.200 --> 00:16:50.040
  • AND HE PASSED AWAY A YEAR LATER
  • 00:16:50.040 --> 00:16:52.060
  • IN OCTOBER OF 1988.
  • 00:16:52.280 --> 00:16:55.280
  • NOW, I DIDN'T HAVE A WHOLE
  • 00:16:55.280 --> 00:16:57.250
  • LOT OF TIME ON THIS EARTH
  • 00:16:57.250 --> 00:16:59.090
  • WITH MY GRANDFATHER.
  • 00:16:59.090 --> 00:17:01.110
  • I DIDN'T KNOW HIM AS WELL
  • 00:17:01.110 --> 00:17:03.060
  • AS PEOPLE WHO KNEW HIM ALL
  • 00:17:03.060 --> 00:17:05.020
  • OF HIS LIFE.
  • 00:17:05.020 --> 00:17:05.240
  • BUT THE TIME THAT I HAD,
  • 00:17:05.240 --> 00:17:07.110
  • I CHERISHED.
  • 00:17:07.110 --> 00:17:08.250
  • MOST OF IT, WE WERE FISHING,
  • 00:17:08.250 --> 00:17:10.050
  • WE WERE HUNTING,
  • 00:17:10.050 --> 00:17:11.090
  • WE WERE AT FAMILY EVENTS.
  • 00:17:11.090 --> 00:17:12.210
  • IT WAS GREAT TO BE AROUND
  • 00:17:12.210 --> 00:17:14.230
  • GRANDPA.
  • 00:17:14.230 --> 00:17:15.240
  • HE AND I HAD A VERY COMMON
  • 00:17:15.240 --> 00:17:17.030
  • THING THAT WE LOVED AND THAT
  • 00:17:17.030 --> 00:17:18.280
  • WAS BEING OUTDOORS ON THE LAKE.
  • 00:17:18.280 --> 00:17:21.000
  • WHATEVER WE COULD DO TO GO
  • 00:17:21.000 --> 00:17:22.190
  • OUTSIDE, THAT'S WHERE WE WERE.
  • 00:17:22.190 --> 00:17:25.190
  • NOW IN THE TIME THAT HE'S
  • 00:17:25.190 --> 00:17:26.240
  • PASSED,
  • 00:17:26.240 --> 00:17:27.150
  • I'VE GOTTEN TO KNOW HIM BETTER
  • 00:17:27.150 --> 00:17:29.090
  • BECAUSE I HAD A FATHER WHO
  • 00:17:29.090 --> 00:17:30.120
  • HELPED FILL IN THE BLANKS.
  • 00:17:30.130 --> 00:17:33.130
  • AND WHAT I KNOW ABOUT MY
  • 00:17:33.130 --> 00:17:34.120
  • GRANDFATHER IS THAT HE DID LOVE
  • 00:17:34.280 --> 00:17:37.280
  • THE LORD WITH ALL OF HIS HEART.
  • 00:17:37.280 --> 00:17:40.010
  • AND HE LOVED GOD'S WORD.
  • 00:17:40.010 --> 00:17:42.120
  • AND HE GAVE SIX DECADES OF HIS
  • 00:17:42.120 --> 00:17:44.030
  • LIFE TO PREACHING GOD'S WORD,
  • 00:17:44.030 --> 00:17:46.170
  • WINNING OTHERS TO CHRIST.
  • 00:17:47.110 --> 00:17:50.110
  • BUT WHAT I DIDN'T KNOW AND
  • 00:17:50.110 --> 00:17:51.120
  • FOUND OUT LATER IS THAT HE GREW
  • 00:17:51.120 --> 00:17:53.100
  • UP IN SUCH A LEGALISTIC
  • 00:17:53.100 --> 00:17:56.070
  • PENTECOSTAL DENOMINATION
  • 00:17:56.280 --> 00:17:59.280
  • THAT IT CREATED SUCH A PERSONAL
  • 00:17:59.280 --> 00:18:01.150
  • TORMENT FOR HIM;
  • 00:18:01.150 --> 00:18:02.280
  • THAT ENJOYING LIFE WAS
  • 00:18:02.280 --> 00:18:04.170
  • SOMETHING NOT EASY TO DO.
  • 00:18:05.120 --> 00:18:08.120
  • HE GREW UP IN SUCH A
  • 00:18:08.120 --> 00:18:09.250
  • PENTECOSTAL RELIGIOUS STRUCTURE
  • 00:18:09.250 --> 00:18:12.240
  • THAT THEY HAD SO MANY RULES
  • 00:18:12.240 --> 00:18:14.170
  • THAT THERE WERE 101 WAYS
  • 00:18:14.170 --> 00:18:16.070
  • TO GO TO HELL,
  • 00:18:16.070 --> 00:18:17.060
  • AND GOD WAS LOOKING TO SEND YOU
  • 00:18:17.060 --> 00:18:18.150
  • THERE.
  • 00:18:18.150 --> 00:18:20.240
  • IT WAS A VERY GRACELESS,
  • 00:18:20.280 --> 00:18:23.280
  • A VERY HARD WAY TO TRY
  • 00:18:23.280 --> 00:18:26.190
  • AND BUILD FAITH.
  • 00:18:26.190 --> 00:18:29.160
  • THE RULES WERE BASED
  • 00:18:29.160 --> 00:18:30.130
  • ON YOUR ABILITY.
  • 00:18:30.130 --> 00:18:31.110
  • THEY WERE BASED
  • 00:18:31.110 --> 00:18:31.270
  • ON YOUR STRENGTH.
  • 00:18:31.270 --> 00:18:32.220
  • THEY WERE NOT BASED
  • 00:18:32.220 --> 00:18:33.170
  • ON GOD'S GRACE.
  • 00:18:33.170 --> 00:18:35.040
  • IT WAS MAN MADE RELIGION
  • 00:18:35.040 --> 00:18:36.250
  • THAT LEFT NO ROOM FOR
  • 00:18:36.250 --> 00:18:38.110
  • ANY IMPERFECTION IN YOUR
  • 00:18:38.110 --> 00:18:40.050
  • RELATIONSHIP.
  • 00:18:40.050 --> 00:18:41.020
  • YOU HAD TO DO ALL THE WORK
  • 00:18:41.020 --> 00:18:42.240
  • AND GOD WAS LOOKING FOR A REASON
  • 00:18:42.240 --> 00:18:44.200
  • TO PUNISH YOU.
  • 00:18:44.200 --> 00:18:46.170
  • YOU SAY, THAT SOUNDS SILLY.
  • 00:18:46.170 --> 00:18:47.270
  • WHO WOULD BELIEVE SUCH
  • 00:18:47.270 --> 00:18:48.270
  • A THING?
  • 00:18:48.270 --> 00:18:49.090
  • BUT THAT WAS ALL THAT HE EVER
  • 00:18:49.090 --> 00:18:50.160
  • KNEW.
  • 00:18:50.160 --> 00:18:52.100
  • YOU SAY,
  • 00:18:52.100 --> 00:18:52.280
  • "WELL, HOW DO YOU KNOW ALL THIS;
  • 00:18:52.280 --> 00:18:54.250
  • HE DIED WHEN YOU WERE NINE?"
  • 00:18:54.250 --> 00:18:57.050
  • LIKE I SAID,
  • 00:18:57.050 --> 00:18:57.250
  • "I HAD A DAD WHO FILLED IN
  • 00:18:57.250 --> 00:18:59.150
  • THE BLANKS."
  • 00:18:59.150 --> 00:19:02.080
  • WHILE HE GREW UP
  • 00:19:02.080 --> 00:19:03.020
  • IN THAT RELIGIOUS STRUCTURE,
  • 00:19:03.020 --> 00:19:05.050
  • IT DIDN'T MAKE HOME LIFE HAPPY
  • 00:19:05.050 --> 00:19:07.020
  • LIFE IF YOU WERE HIS SON.
  • 00:19:08.050 --> 00:19:11.050
  • A FEW YEARS AGO,
  • 00:19:11.050 --> 00:19:11.270
  • DAD AND I WERE TAKING A TRIP
  • 00:19:11.270 --> 00:19:13.090
  • TO THE RANCH IN WEST TEXAS.
  • 00:19:13.170 --> 00:19:16.170
  • AND I WAS BRINGING UP GRANDPA.
  • 00:19:16.170 --> 00:19:18.120
  • EVERY TIME I GO TO THE RANCH,
  • 00:19:18.120 --> 00:19:19.170
  • I THINK ABOUT MY GRANDFATHER.
  • 00:19:19.170 --> 00:19:20.270
  • AND I SAID, "DAD,
  • 00:19:20.270 --> 00:19:22.160
  • IT WOULD IS SURE BE NICE
  • 00:19:22.160 --> 00:19:23.190
  • IF GRANDPA COULD GET A WEEKEND
  • 00:19:23.190 --> 00:19:24.270
  • PASS FROM HEAVEN AND COME DOWN
  • 00:19:24.270 --> 00:19:26.260
  • HERE AND GO TO THE RANCH
  • 00:19:26.260 --> 00:19:27.230
  • WITH US."
  • 00:19:27.230 --> 00:19:29.100
  • AND I JUST THOUGHT IT WAS
  • 00:19:29.100 --> 00:19:30.020
  • A SIMPLE COMMENT.
  • 00:19:30.020 --> 00:19:32.290
  • BUT AFTER A LONG PAUSE
  • 00:19:32.290 --> 00:19:34.060
  • OF SILENCE,
  • 00:19:34.060 --> 00:19:36.000
  • PASTOR STARTED TO SPEAK UP.
  • 00:19:36.100 --> 00:19:39.100
  • AND HE SAID,
  • 00:19:39.100 --> 00:19:39.250
  • "YOU KNOW THERE WERE DAYS
  • 00:19:39.250 --> 00:19:41.250
  • AND WEEKS THAT HE WOULDN'T EVEN
  • 00:19:41.260 --> 00:19:44.260
  • SAY A WORD,
  • 00:19:44.260 --> 00:19:46.180
  • NOT HELLO,
  • 00:19:46.180 --> 00:19:47.100
  • NOT GOOD MORNING,
  • 00:19:47.100 --> 00:19:49.010
  • NOT GOOD NIGHT."
  • 00:19:49.010 --> 00:19:51.120
  • HE SAID,
  • 00:19:51.120 --> 00:19:51.290
  • "DID YOU KNOW THAT OUT OF ALL
  • 00:19:51.290 --> 00:19:53.100
  • THE GAMES OF FOOTBALL THAT
  • 00:19:53.100 --> 00:19:54.180
  • I EVER PLAYED FROM THE SEVENTH
  • 00:19:54.180 --> 00:19:55.280
  • GRADE ALL THE WAY THROUGH
  • 00:19:55.280 --> 00:19:57.120
  • COLLEGE,
  • 00:19:57.120 --> 00:19:59.250
  • HE NEVER CAME AND SAW ONE PLAY?
  • 00:20:00.240 --> 00:20:03.240
  • THE NEWSPAPER WOULD HAVE MY
  • 00:20:03.240 --> 00:20:05.000
  • PICTURE ON THE FRONT PAGE AND
  • 00:20:05.000 --> 00:20:06.200
  • HE WOULDN'T READ THE ARTICLE?"
  • 00:20:06.200 --> 00:20:09.140
  • THE CHURCH THOUGHT THAT
  • 00:20:09.140 --> 00:20:10.100
  • FOOTBALL WAS SIN,
  • 00:20:10.100 --> 00:20:11.180
  • SO IN ORDER TO STAY HOLY,
  • 00:20:11.180 --> 00:20:12.280
  • HE IGNORED IT.
  • 00:20:13.110 --> 00:20:16.110
  • HE SAID,
  • 00:20:16.110 --> 00:20:16.260
  • "DID YOU KNOW THAT IN THE
  • 00:20:16.260 --> 00:20:17.250
  • EIGHTH GRADE,
  • 00:20:17.250 --> 00:20:18.170
  • I WON THE AMERICAN LEGION AWARD
  • 00:20:18.170 --> 00:20:19.280
  • FOR BEING THE BEST STUDENT
  • 00:20:19.280 --> 00:20:21.040
  • IN THE SCHOOL DISTRICT,
  • 00:20:21.040 --> 00:20:22.020
  • FOR BEING THE ACADEMIC LEADER,
  • 00:20:22.020 --> 00:20:24.000
  • FOR BEING THE ATHLETIC LEADER,
  • 00:20:24.100 --> 00:20:27.100
  • AND HE NEVER SAID A WORD?"
  • 00:20:27.150 --> 00:20:30.150
  • AND FOR 30 MINUTES,
  • 00:20:30.150 --> 00:20:32.020
  • DAD BEGAN TO EXPRESS THE PAIN
  • 00:20:32.020 --> 00:20:34.120
  • OF THAT CHILDHOOD EXPERIENCE
  • 00:20:34.120 --> 00:20:36.070
  • WHERE HE DIDN'T HAVE THE KIND
  • 00:20:36.070 --> 00:20:37.140
  • OF FATHER THAT I HAD.
  • 00:20:37.260 --> 00:20:40.260
  • AND THE MOOD IN THE TRUCK
  • 00:20:40.260 --> 00:20:42.160
  • AND THE TRIP STARTED TO TURN.
  • 00:20:43.090 --> 00:20:46.090
  • AND FOR THE NEXT 15 MINUTES,
  • 00:20:46.090 --> 00:20:47.210
  • WE JUST RODE IN SILENCE.
  • 00:20:47.210 --> 00:20:50.200
  • AND IF YOU KNOW ANYTHING
  • 00:20:50.200 --> 00:20:51.140
  • ABOUT ME,
  • 00:20:51.140 --> 00:20:52.050
  • SITTING IN SILENCE FOR
  • 00:20:52.050 --> 00:20:53.100
  • 15 MINUTES IS NEARLY IMPOSSIBLE.
  • 00:20:53.170 --> 00:20:56.170
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:20:56.210 --> 00:20:59.210
  • AND I KIND OF WHISPERED
  • 00:20:59.210 --> 00:21:00.180
  • A PRAYER.
  • 00:21:00.190 --> 00:21:03.190
  • I SAID, "LORD,
  • 00:21:03.190 --> 00:21:04.110
  • GIVE ME THE WORDS TO SAY."
  • 00:21:04.110 --> 00:21:06.250
  • AND THEN I STARTED TALKING.
  • 00:21:06.250 --> 00:21:09.110
  • AND I HOPED IT WAS GOD.
  • 00:21:09.110 --> 00:21:11.200
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:21:11.200 --> 00:21:13.260
  • AND I SAID, "WELL DAD,
  • 00:21:13.260 --> 00:21:16.240
  • I GUESS I SHOULD WRITE GRANDPA
  • 00:21:16.240 --> 00:21:19.180
  • A THANK YOU LETTER."
  • 00:21:19.180 --> 00:21:22.020
  • AND HE SAID, "WHAT?"
  • 00:21:22.020 --> 00:21:24.190
  • AND I WENT, "OH, LORD."
  • 00:21:24.190 --> 00:21:26.190
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:21:26.190 --> 00:21:29.060
  • AND I SAID,
  • 00:21:29.060 --> 00:21:29.260
  • "I GUESS I SHOULD WRITE HIM
  • 00:21:29.260 --> 00:21:30.140
  • A THANK YOU LETTER."
  • 00:21:30.140 --> 00:21:32.170
  • "WHAT FOR?"
  • 00:21:32.220 --> 00:21:35.220
  • I SAID, "WELL," I SAID,
  • 00:21:35.220 --> 00:21:37.250
  • "I CAN'T ARGUE WITH THE THINGS
  • 00:21:37.250 --> 00:21:40.060
  • THAT HAPPENED IN YOUR
  • 00:21:40.060 --> 00:21:42.010
  • CHILDHOOD."
  • 00:21:42.010 --> 00:21:43.270
  • I SAID,
  • 00:21:43.270 --> 00:21:44.110
  • "BUT IF THE WAY HE RAISED YOU
  • 00:21:44.230 --> 00:21:47.230
  • AND ALL OF THE HURT THAT YOU
  • 00:21:47.230 --> 00:21:49.260

  • YOU BECOME THE DAD YOU ARE

  • TO ME."
  • 00:21:55.110 --> 00:21:56.290
  • I SAID,
  • 00:21:56.290 --> 00:21:57.160
  • "THEN I GUESS I SHOULD WRITE
  • 00:21:57.160 --> 00:21:59.110
  • A LETTER AND THANK GRANDPA."
  • 00:21:59.270 --> 00:22:02.290
  • (APPLAUSE)
