Chuck Swindoll has said, "Dad is not perfect; he would be the first to admit it. Nor is he infallible, much to his own disappointment. Nor altogether fair … nor always right. But there's one thing he is-always-he is your dad … the only one you'll ever have. Take it from me, there's only one thing he needs on Father's Day. Plain and simple, he needs to hear you say, "Dad, I love you."

"That's the best gift you can give. Nothing you can buy will bring him anywhere near the satisfaction that four-word gift will provide. 'Dad, I love you.'"
