This week’s Devotional Topic
Jesus Christ gave some observations found in the book of Matthew of the ultimate Father, our Heavenly Father:
**We should PRAISE the Father for his good deeds AND earthly fathers for theirs.
**Our heavenly Father is FORGIVING and fathers should forgive others even as God for Christ sake has forgiven us.
**Our heavenly Father feeds us, MEETS OUR material NEEDS, as fathers, we should work hard to meet the needs of our families and those around us.
**Our heavenly Father KNOWS all our needs. Fathers should watch out for the needs of others.
**Our heavenly Father GIVES us GOOD THINGS when we ask. When our family asks, always give them the best.
**Our heavenly Father knows those who are His. Work hard to really KNOW your family.
**Our heavenly Father has a special place in His heart for children. Love your children and don’t frustrate them or provoke them to anger.
**God’s Discipline is always good for us, as father’s we should discipline with instruction and in love.
God has used your father to conform you to His image. No matter how good or bad your father is or has been, we are told in Romans 8:28 – 29 that it’s all good BECAUSE it is being used by God in our lives.
And be thankful for the absolute PERFECT FATHER – OUR HEAVENLY FATHER who loved us so much that he gave his ONLY son to purchase our salvation. Saving us from sin and making a way that we can spend eternity in Heaven with Him – our FATHER!
