There’s someone I know, and when he was seven, he disobeyed his father. So his dad told him to pack his things in a little bag, and he took him to an orphanage. And there, outside the orphanage, his dad told him that he was leaving him there because he was no good as a son. I guess you can imagine how that haunted that poor little kid for the rest of his life.
Sadly we live in a society in which to call God your Father is a turn-off rather than a positive for too many people because they never really had a true father.
Regardless of the kind of human father you had, God still wants to be the perfect father to you today.
And if you never had a father, God really is the father you always needed. He never abandons his children, not even when we don’t live up to his expectations.
God’s children are never abandoned.
