Happy Father’s Day!

See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! (1 John 3:1)

Have you wished God a Happy Father’s Day?

Sound a little strange? It shouldn’t. The Bible paints a picture of God as the universe’s ultimate father. He loves us waaaaaaaaaay more than we could ever imagine and loves it when we love him back.

So, what kind of dad is our Heavenly Father? Here are just a few of the words used to describe him:

  • available
  • caring
  • faithful
  • forgiving
  • generous
  • gentle
  • gracious
  • humble
  • kind
  • loving
  • merciful
  • patient
  • trustworthy

If you’re a father: Model yourself after our Heavenly Father using the above list as a blueprint. Pray for wisdom and guidance every step of the way.

If you have an earthly father and he’s nothing like the list above: Don’t despair. Lean on your Heavenly Father every moment and pray for your earthly one to change.

If you have no earthly father: Our Heavenly Father is called “father to the fatherless” (Psalm 68:5). He’s there for you 365/24/7 and beyond.

Spend some quality time with your Heavenly Father today. Thank Him for all he’s done.
