What do you think when someone mentions the word Father? You might look back and think of good times, maybe bad or just a father that you never knew.

Thinking of God as a father we must detach what we have experienced with an earthly father. We must think about what the perfect father would be? Maybe strong, always listening, spending time, picks us up when we are low, defending us, etc…

I like the father in the prodigal son. He loves his children unconditionally, allows them to leave, looks out for them, runs to embrace his son when he returns, generous and makes sure that the other son is included.

Does this fit with some of your images of God?
