From an earthly perspective, many say I’m a good father to my boys. While that does flatter me and make me feel good, in comparison to our heavenly Father I fall way short.
There’s many times that I lose my patience with my boys. I’ve been quick to anger. I’ve lied to them. I’ve broken promises. I’ve taken my frustrations out on them. And there’s been several times that I’ve retreated because I wanted some peace and quiet.
Our Father is always patient. He is very slow to anger. He never breaks His promises and He is always there for us. He never fails as a father.
These are just a couple reasons why I love the song “Good Good Father.” Throughout the song I am reminded of His fatherhood to us and that all His ways are perfect.
If you are a father, be encouraged knowing that you aren’t a perfect father but that you have one to model yourself after.
If your father was slack and lacking, know that you have a perfect father in heaven that has your best interest in mind.
Use these songs as go about your week to focus your attention on God, our heavenly Father.
