Throughout the Bible we learn story after story of godly fathers. From Adam to Noah, and Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, God has given these fathers a place of honor in history. And because He knows the difficulty and importance of a father’s job, God’s Word is filled with advice for handling the task of raising children. And He knows of what He speaks. For God is our great Father. The One who through His unfathomable love and mercy, calls us His very own. For when we receive Jesus as our Savior, we become adopted heirs into the family of God (Rom. 8:17, 1 John 3:1) He loves and cares for us as a father cares for His children. And I for one, can’t think of a greater day than when our Father calls us home to dwell with Him for eternity!
