Our Father in heaven
While at Target, I watched a very angry little girl hitting her huge father as hard as she could. Her father had the physique of an NFL linebacker, but he had a look of hurt and sadness as he received her tiny blows.
“Doesn’t she realize,” I thought, "that with half of a swat, he could send her into the next universe?”
But then I thought, “This has got to be her dad, who loves her more than life itself. This is something she knows, and it’s much truer to the reality of her situation than my initial observation.”
God forbid we should be like this little girl and strike out against our Heavenly Father-- the holy, omnipotent Lord of Hosts.
But may we be like little children, secure within the reality of the love of our Heavenly Father.
