By CTA – Christ to All
Father’s Day comes at the same time every year. And Father’s Day presents the same question every year: what is a good gift idea for Dad? It is not only children who want to find the perfect gift for their father—many churches are looking for the perfect Father's Day gift idea for church members and those within their religious community.
Tools—whether it is a multi-tool, pocket knife, or screwdriver set—can be just the right thing for a perfect Father’s Day gift. CTA has many different tools to choose from for Father’s Day gifts and, best of all, they each include an inspiring Scripture passage that connects to a meaningful Gospel message for dads!
God's Word on Everything - Even on Tools
The Bible encourages us to have God’s Word everywhere. In Deuteronomy 6, we hear this:
“And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise. You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates” (Deuteronomy 6:6–9 ESV).
God’s Word can appear in all kinds of places—our hearts and hands, doorposts and gates, and even on tools! Having the Word of God appear in so many different places is a steady reminder of God’s promises and love in Jesus. A Scripture-engraved pocketknife, multi-tool, or screwdriver is the modern-day equivalent to putting God’s Word on your doorposts and gates. These Christian Father’s Day gifts offer a constant reminder of God’s Word and enduring promises. Also, CTA has plenty of relatable free downloads and Bible verse cards that go together with these gifts so God’s Word and promises can be shared while giving these gifts.
Start a Conversation
Pastors and churches are always looking for ways to help their people share the Good News of Jesus with the world. By giving a tool with an encouraging Bible verse as a Father’s Day gift, you are also giving men an opportunity to tell others about Jesus. When the father carries that pocketknife or uses that multi-tool in the presence of others, they cannot help but notice the message on the tool itself. (And they will also hopefully notice the loving-kindness and service of the man using the tool to serve!) In this way, these tools are more than just a gift for your Christian father—they become a gift to others when the conversation turns to Jesus and his love for the world.
Teach a Child
The best gifts for Father’s Day are the ones that enable fathers, grandfathers, uncles, and all men of God to spend meaningful time with the children that God has put into their lives. Just as Deuteronomy 6 invites men to diligently teach children about the Word of God and his love, a multi-tool or screwdriver Father’s Day gift is great for church members looking for opportunities to teach a child how to use tools and serve others. Sure, a multi-tool or screwdriver will come in handy for dad—but it’s even better when he can use it to teach a little one how it works and how to use it to care for God’s creation. Children will cherish learning from a dad, a grandpa, or an uncle how to use a level, screwdriver, or compass. In this way, a Father’s Day gift of a tool is an invitation for quality time and learning between men and the next generation.
