The Role Of A Father

With so many things going wrong in the world you have to wonder how God our "father" looks at us. He tried so many times to give his creation all that they needed to survive, we seemed to turn away and totally disrespect our father. In more then one chapter, in more then one verse, it is repeated throughout the bible. We shunned God. Of course he got angry on so many occasions, however like most fathers, he found a soft spot in his heart to forgive us. His (Gods) ultimate sacrifice was giving up his own son to save his creation(mankind). We can definitely take note here. Unconditional love does just that. Loves with no conditions. Yes, there is disappointment. Yes, there are emotions ranging from hurt and pain to shrugging it off. But we have to remember that unconditional love reins supreme.

1 John 4:8 Anyone who does not love does not know God, because God is love.
