The Love of a Father
“The Lord is like a father to his children, tender and compassionate to those who fear him. For he knows how weak we are; he remembers we are only dust.” Psalm 103:13-14
I think that we are sometimes harder on ourselves than God is. Yes, He expects us to strive toward perfection, yet at the same time He knows how imperfect even our best efforts really are. And, like a good father, he loves and encourages us in our weak attempts to please him.
It is like my 2 year old grand daughter’s drawings – they are pretty rough in comparision to a master artist, but to me they are perfection because I love her.
As we celebrate Father’s Day this weekend, never forget that we have a tender and compassionate Heavenly Father who loves you… perfectly.
