Reader’s Digest has compiled a list of their favorite Father’s Day stories:

No. 1 on [their] list — literally!

My father was completely lost in the kitchen and never ate unless someone prepared a meal for him. When Mother was ill, however, he volunteered to go to the supermarket for her. She sent him off with a carefully numbered list of seven items.

Dad returned shortly, very proud of himself, and proceeded to unpack the grocery bags. He had one bag of sugar, two dozen eggs, three hams, four boxes of detergent, five boxes of crackers, six eggplants, and seven green peppers.

Application:

Fortunately, a father doesn’t have to be good at everything to be a great dad. He must, however, set an example of godliness.

“Follow my example, as I follow the example of Christ” (1 Corinthians 11:1).
