Being given a daughter is a sacred trust, but the world doesn’t care about that.
And, it will happen.
Your daughter’s self-perception is going to be influenced by something and/or by someone.
Do you want it to be Vogue or Cosmo magazine? How about the advertisements in the windows of the Victoria Doesn’t Have Any Secrets store? Of course not! This world has no business providing perspective for the children of The King.
Why does your daughter have you for her father? Because God knew exactly what He was doing. He strategically placed “Dad” in her life so she would get her information about who she is and how she is valued from the right place.
There are eight things every daughter needs to hear from her dad. Some of them are pretty basic . . . so basic, we seldom, if ever, say them. But, that can change today.
1) I love you.
She needs to know she doesn’t have to perform or measure up to some arbitrary standard to receive your love and approval. She is (should be) loved because she is there, in your life – just like God loves us.
2) You are beautiful.
The world won’t tell her this . . . not without an ulterior motive. Mostly, the world will tell her she isn’t beautiful, doesn’t measure up, is too this, or not enough that, etc. And, it’s never too late to start. I once heard a dying man say to his 60 yr. old daughter, “You’re so beautiful,” for the first time! Oh, how she loved hearing those words!
