Ortland honors his father and describes his example here.
Here is what I see:
1. He genuinely loved his son and was interested in what he was into.
2. He was not overbearing. He set his son free to pursue God’s calling on his life.
3. He loved the gospel and the Bible. He really prayed.
4. He believed great things for his son.
5. He loved his family even after hard days. He came home to serve not to be served.
