Earthly Father vs. Heavenly Father


Earthly Father vs. Heavenly Father

An earthly father is someone who-

… protects his family,

… provides for his family,

… takes his son to the ball game,

… will be there for his daughter's ballet recital

…will be there for his child's best moments such as awards, graduation, meeting his/her "first love," and when their hearts get broken,

…will always be there no matter what his children are going through,

But most of all, a father is someone who would love his family unconditionally.

Our Heavenly Father is someone who-

…forgives our sins over and over again,

…gives peace in this "mad and broken" world,

…knows everything about us,

…someone who gives us hope when things go wrong,

…communicates with us through prayer and worship,

…reveals Himself to us through God's Word,

…cares for all of His children,

…but most of all, He died for our sins, so that we may have eternal life with Him in heaven.

John Chapter 3

16For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.(KJV)

*Please note:

Both Earthly father and Heavenly Father are very important in someone's life; however, we, sometimes, forget about our Heavenly Father since He is not with us physically. This is just a reminder that if an earthly father can love his family unconditionally, how much more our Heavenly Father who created us all?
