Build in your mind the picture of your perfect father. Forget your father and focus on the ideal. Would he be strong, loving, caring, merciful. powerful, protecting, understanding, compassionate, truthful, providing, attentive, inspiring, gentle, interesting, involved, close, time rich, faithful, grace-filled, generous, compassionate, forgiving, fun, happy, knowledgeable, wise, principled and thoughtful? I’m sure you would have other attributes you would give to him. Each of us would put together a different picture of what our perfect father would look like. However, each of us will have put together a picture that gives us a small glimpse of what God is like and what He wants to be for us. Now, don’t that make you feel good?!?!?!
