Perfect Father

As a father, I can tell you that I am not perfect. I've made my share of mistakes, made a few poor decisions and said a few things I wish I could gather back up. I think any father out there can identify with me on this. My father was a great dad - no, the best. He was sure to let me know when I was placing myself in a compromising position, always tried to protect me from my own mistakes and I knew he always loved me. But even my dad would say that he made a few mistakes along the way. My dad passed on some years ago, so I've been without my father's love and protection much of my adult life.

There is another Father who will always be there for me. Always faithful, always loving and always accepting. This Father is never too busy for me and He always has me on His mind. Always tender, always compassionate. He knows that I have my shortcomings too. He knows that life is tough, but He is always good. He will never fail me. When this life is over, I will have eternity with Him. And guess what? He loves my children too! He loves you.

Psalm 103:13-18 "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. Our days on earth are like grass; like wildflowers, we bloom and die. The wind blows, and we are gone — as though we had never been here. But the love of the Lord remains forever with those who fear him. His salvation extends to the children’s children of those who are faithful to his covenant, of those who obey his commandments."
