My dad (who passed 12 years ago this week) was truly a great father who loved, cared, and guided me. His influence on my life was huge as he taught me, by example, how to have a quiet time, love people, care for those who are in need as well as excellent theology.
He taught me about our Heavenly Father who loves each of us so very much, regardless of the love, or lack of love from our own dads. It is so interesting that God chooses to relate to us as a “father”. It is a role that each of us can relate to.
God is our perfect Father, inviting us all to safely sit and learn from Him how to live!
