The majority of owners of dogs and cats have no idea who the pets' father is. Often it is a great mystery. Not to cast aspersions on any dog or cat's parentage...
Father's Day is this weekend and it can be a time of great celebration for some, and great pain for others.
Whether we admit it or not, we long for a father. Abandonment by a father wounds us in ways we often don't realize until we find that love fulfilled.
Today I heard a dad say, "I can't be a perfect father, but my imperfections point to the Lord, who is perfect and fulfilling in every way I can not be."
Whether you are thanking God for your earthly father or feeling difficult emotions, the truth is that father points to God our Father, who is perfect, who is NEAR, and who loves YOU tremendously in the ways of truth and grace. This is the Father to know, love, and adore.
