In all my years of counseling, I can tell you something I’ve never heard. I’ve never talked to an adult who reported that while he was growing up his father worked all the time, but God filled in the gaps, and there was no residual relational or emotional damage. I’ve never talked to a mom who reported that her husband neglected his family for the sake of his career, but fortunately, God filled the void, and everything was fine.
