God, The Ultimate Parent

It Is Written, Psalm 103:13, as a father pities his children, so the Lord pities those who fear Him.
It is difficult for many people to accept the idea that God is our father, in every sense of the word.
To get a better idea about how God feels about us, try looking at it from a different perspective. Instead of comparing God the father, to our earthly father, look at it as your relationship to your children.
Any good parent wants the best for their children. You teach them right from wrong, and what it takes to be a good person. When they hurt, you hurt even more, because you love them.
A parent is prepared to make any sacrifice for the benefit of their children. You guide them in the way they should go, and to keep them from making mistakes.
In spite of all your efforts, the children do not listen, and end up learning the hard way. It doesn't  matter what they do, you still love them and forgive them.
So you have to ask yourself, if our creator gave His only son to save us, and the Holy Spirit to guide us, how much more of a parent is He to us?
Just as we appreciate our children's love for us, God our father, appreciates our love for Him. God bless you and your family. Praise The Lord!
Remember Jesus Loves You
Prayer of Salvation
Lord Jesus, I thank you for what you did on the cross for me. Your blood washed away all my sins, by your stripes I was healed, your death and resurrection brought me salvation. Please forgive my sins, and come into my heart as my personal Savior.
Thank You Lord
