Since I’ve become a parent, I’ve learned SO much about my Heavenly Father and what he thinks of me. Just from how I deal with my children, tells me so much about God. The Bible’s reference to God as our Father says so much about who He is and what He wants for my life. Since having children my eyes have been opened to new things about my God that I never noticed. For example…
- God has got to LOVE it when I talk (pray) to Him. How do I know this? Because I love it when my boys take time to talk to me.
- God has got to LOVE hearing things like, “I love you,” and “Thank You,” and “You’re a good Father.” Why do I believe that? Because all parents love hearing their children say things like that.
- God must REALLY get frustrated when we grumble, fight and argue. I know this because as a father those things really burn me up too.
See how this works? I’ve learned things about God simply by becoming a parent. I’ve got a few more, but I’d like your thoughts on this too. So help me out here, what are some things YOU have learned about your Father in heaven since you’ve become a parent?
