Read Galatians 4:1-7. All men bear God’s image, but only those who surrender their lives to Him and accept His free gift of salvation through Jesus Christ get to call Him Father. They are the only ones whom He calls sons.
Now, depending on your personal experience, the word father may conjure either positive or negative feelings, maybe both. Some dads are good. They make themselves available and correct their children when they are wrong. They help their children learn the skills they need to become successful, independent adults and provide encouragement along the way. They work and keep that which has been entrusted to them.
Others fathers don’t. They leave. They hit. They belittle. They ignore. They damage and throw away. No matter your experience, good or bad, God the Father is the best Father you will ever know. He is perfect, powerful, ever-present, and available. He loves you unconditionally and always seeks your good for His glory.
Consider these questions until tomorrow: What can you learn from God’s example as Father? What needs to change about the way you interact with those who depend on you and/or look to you for guidance and direction? How might your obedience in these things lead others to trust God as Father?
