Happy fathers’ day

I’m grateful to God for my dad for many reasons, but with today being fathers’ day I’ve been particularly struck by one reason for thankfulness. Without a loving father, the idea of a loving Father is meaningless. My dad helps me understand my Dad.

I love them both dearly, and I thank God for giving me a father on earth who demonstrates love towards me as a picture of God. So many people seem to be without a loving earthly father, and while of course they can still come to our heavenly Father I would imagine some must struggle with the idea of a father being loving.

I’m grateful my upbringing includes both my father and my Father, and both love me dearly.
