Characteristics of the Perfect Father
You might describe your father as your own superhero. Some of you might use less flattering words. Other might not have had a real dad or don’t remember. My own dad was a wonderful, caring man. But none of us could call our fathers perfect.
Here are some characteristics of the perfect father. Do you know anyone like this?
- He has no favorites, but loves all His children unconditionally. Then Peter began to speak to them: “I truly understand that God shows no partiality” (Acts 10:34)
- He is forever faithful and will never abandon His children. See what love the Father has given us that we should be called children of God; and that is what we are. (1 John 3:1a). And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age. (Matthew 28:20b)
- He is always available. When they call to me, I will answer them; I will be with them in trouble, I will rescue them and honor them. (Psalm 91:15)
- He always knows the wise thing to do. …to the only wise God, through Jesus Christ, to whom be the glory forever! Amen. (Romans 16:27) Your hands have made and fashioned me; give me understanding that I may learn your commandments. (Psalm 119:73)
There is only one who meets all of these characteristics listed and many more. It is our Heavenly Father. This Father’s Day when we celebrate the gift of our earthly fathers may we also remember to give thanks to our perfect Heavenly Father.
Grace & Peace, Pastor Bob
