God’s Blessing of Fatherhood

Here’s some thoughts from last year, but I’m even more thankful for my dad (and father-in-law) now that I have two sons (a 3 year-old and a 7 month-old)…God is good!

Being a dad to a 2 year old has made me thankful for my dad and the time he took out of his busy schedule to make me know that he loved me, that I was special to him, and that he wanted God’s best for my life.

Whether we have an earthly father that we can look up to, or perhaps we have never met our earthly father, what a blessing it is for Christians to know that their Heavenly Father loves them far more than any earthly dad has or hasn’t.

We can truly rejoice in God’s blessing of Fatherhood to us as He faithfully leads and lovingly disciplines us along our daily lives as His children. It is only by God’s adoptive grace that we can look in His face through prayer and cry out, “Abba [literally, “Dad!], Father!” (Romans 8:15).
