Who is your daddy?

As I understand it, this was known as a hilarious quote by Arnold Schwarzenegger in Kindergarten Cop. It was used excessively in Arnold prank calls which can be quite hilarious. The term who is your daddy which derives from this usually is an expression of personal superiority to someone else or to emphasize a victory. (The Urban dictionary)

Who’s your daddy? Is a slang expression that, in one use, takes the form of a rhetorical question! It is commonly used as a boastful claim of dominance over the intended listener. The phrase itself stands out as a noteworthy lyric from the 1968 song “Time of the Season“, by The Zombies: “What’s your name? Who’s your daddy? Is he rich like me?” (Wikipedia)

Though it might sound hilarious and a bit thought-provoking, it might be wise to stop and really ask. “Who is your Daddy?” May I play with your pure and innocent mind a bit just to see if we can come to an understanding of whom we really are, where did we came from and our mission? It would seem impossible to think but who is really your daddy?

This is a question I looked at scornfully in the past because I never stop to think about it as a question that made much sense. The more I thought about it, I am seeing another side to this statement!

My daddy says: “Before I formed you I knew you and chose you for the purpose for which you were made.” Only your daddy could make such bold statement! Our daddy knows us because He had a part to play in our existence. Unlike other dads, we do always have a relationship. If we chose to be out of touch, that is no fault of his. He is always there ready to give us the help we need.

The way I look at it, we were born into a wealthy relationship but sometime because we choose to do our own thing we become estranged within the relationship. Why would I want to be out of touch with my dad when he has everything I need to survive? This is something we will never understand but we find ourselves in this situation anyway. We all claim to belong to the same father but we are sometimes dysfunctional. Dysfunctional because when you leave your estate someone else takes over and by the time we return, it is all infected by your “step dad.”

I will tell you who my daddy is! That is a bold statement but I am proud to call him dad. He took care of me and made sure I did not lack anything of importance for my survival. He always listens to my stories even when they don’t really make much sense! My daddy loves me and he calls me his friend. He will call you friend if you do what he commands.  The problem is you might claim him but you do not obey him; that is the real problem!

Your daddy is the one you cling or lay claim to. He is the one you obey and follow. How is he your Dad when you don’t respect him? Although He would like to claim you as his own, he likes to give you the choice to choose him. Think about this and answer the question; who is your Daddy? Is He rich like mine?
