Sermon on the Mount --naturally a good Father

If you who are evil know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask Him.

I watch men who look pretty exotic from their various piercing, tatoos and uncomfortable clothing styles showing all the concern that any father would have with their young children. I listen to them speak gently to their little rambunctious boys, teaching them to behave, and to say please and thank you. It's pretty interesting how fatherhood brings the best in a young man.

Our Lord Jesus said being a good parent is what comes naturally to us, despite our evil hearts. So how is it that we are fearful, understanding that God is our Heavenly Father? Do we think He would ever disregard us when we pray to Him for His help and protection?
