“As a father has compassion on his children, So the LORD has compassion on those who fear Him.” Psalm 103:13 HCSB
A good father has great compassion, love, and pity for his children. He tenderly cares for them in their weakness and in their time of need. When they hurt, he hurts with them. A good father guides his children to become all they can be. He teaches them how to do their best. God is the good Father to His children. His children are those who fear Him, who reverence Him, who are in awe of Him, and who trust and obey Him. God is concerned and cares for His children.
Lord Jesus, You showed Your great love on Calvary’s cross by giving Your life so that I could have a personal relationship with You. Help me today to show others Your love through my words and my deeds.
