A Father's Love: Answering By Our Own Experience

Updated on April 13, 2014

Still familiarizing my path around Hub pages I found a question by Adikari: Why people do not much consider about the father's love? This is one of those questions which the answer will be forced by own experiences, perspectives and values. And the answer gets kind of complicated with diverse situations which nature, society and mankind forces them in ways.

Trying hard to be objective and using common sense I will say...that people come from a mother by a father. Those months inside the womb gives a deep connection (Our bodies change, we have to take more care of ourselves because the baby lives by us...the mother). While the father is near as his actions makes him near the person which is limited by mom's body (Example: touching and talking to the baby through the belly)

The Balance In Creation

A family is an institution consisting in father, mother and children created by God where each member has a privileged place.

Yes, of course their are couples without children and still will be called "family". We see women raising their children alone even fathers by themselves...that is also known as family. To be a family all that it is required is another individual other than yourself. Friends are many times felt and considered like they are the only family they have.

Creation is balanced and from the beginning God instituted the "family"; in Genesis 1:28 reads as follow: "God blessed them and said to them, "Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air and over every living creature that moves on the ground."

No More No Less

Each member of a family has a respectable position. No one is better than the other and we are called to love each one same way and honored their individuality.

"Honor your father and your mother, so that you may live long in the land the LORD your God is giving you." Exodus 20:12

"Listen, my son, to your father's instruction and do not forsake your mother's teaching." Proverbs 1:8

Colossians 3:18-21 "Wives, submit to your husbands, as is fitting in the Lord."

Husbands, love your wives and do not be harsh with them.

Children, obey your parents in everything, for this pleases the Lord.

Fathers, do not embitter your children, or they will become discouraged.

A father's love

Have you search, read, study, watch about animal's parenthood. It is just an understandable behavior. When I lose hope in humanity, all I need is read or watch about animals life and I go back to faith.

The documentary titled "March of the Penguin" shows how these adorable animals work together as parents with the new born. Oh, the love of the father penguin has such a loving lesson to us all.

If they can we can do it better!

Seahorses dads

We need to learn when we do not know how to do something. Open the doors of acknowledgment and gain lessons and wisdom from those that do things right. Animals have an amazing road walked with true wonderful experiences.

Females seahorses deposit their eggs to pouch that male seahorses have. This is so incredible, but true. The male will fertilize the eggs once they are deposit and will incubate them for around forty five days until they are complete seahorses.

Conclusion

If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal

Why people do not much consider about the father's love?

Because they have not experience what real love is about.

1 Corinthians 13 shows us how to know what true love is.

      Very good hub. I loved the way you illustrated that each member of a family should have a respected position. Sadly that is often not the case. We need to remember...especially as fathers...that we are not to lord over our children, but to look after them, and nurture them, and teach them to live, and learn and love. And yes...to respect them and in turn we will be respected. God bless :-)

      Hi Maggie... the Fathers has no boundaries, no conditions and is unending. I struggled for a number of years until I attended a conference called "The Father Heart." It transformed me in many ways and still does to this day.

      I was very blessed to have an earthly dad who was always true to his love, being his family. Far to often we are seeing families with one parent, raised in a setting of being fatherless. The result is I have found is far to many children today view our heavenly Father in the same way...

      Hugs and Blessings
