Daddy's Love

This is a True Story:

A son says to his father: 'Dad, would you be willingly to run a marathon with me?'

The father, despite his age and a heart disease, says 'YES'.

And they run that marathon, together.

The son asks: 'Dad, can you run another marathon with me?' Again father says 'YES'.

They run another marathon, together.

One day the son asks his father: 'Dad would please do the Iron Man with me?'

(Now just in case you wouldn't know, 'The Iron Man' is the toughest triathlon in existence; 4km swimming, then 180 km by bike, and
finally another 42 km running, in one stroke).

Again his father says 'YES'

Maybe this doesn't 'touch' you yet by your heart strings... until you see this movie .

The title of this movie is Daddy's Love and the song titled My Redeemer Lives seem touching to most of us, but if this is the message from the Christianity point of view, I believe many would have not even bother to view this touching movie. In fact the song My Redeemer Lives is actually dedicated to Jesus Christ, He died for us and as a result He redeemed our sins, therefore He is known as the Redeemer, Phillipians 4.13 is actually from the Bible verses. It it sad that we only felt touched by human's love rather than God's love.
