Perfect Parent

Think about your parents. Are your parents perfect? If you have children, are you a perfect parent? Most parents try to always be loving, patient and understanding. But no parent is perfect all the time.

My parents are not perfect either. But I thank God that I have one special parent who is always loving, always patient and always understanding. This “perfect parent” is always right, will always pay attention to me and is always there to help me. Even when our human parents fail us, we can always rely on this perfect parent.

Who is our perfect parent? God, our heavenly Father! In 2 Corinthians 6:18 Paul tells us God’s words from the Old Testament. “‘I will be your father, and you will be my sons and daughters,’ says the Lord All-Powerful.” God wants to take care of us and be our perfect parent.

How can you have God as your perfect parent? Tell Him that you have sinned and that you are sorry. Decide to change your life and live for Him every day. Believe in God’s Son, Jesus, and obey His teachings in the Bible.

God is my wonderful heavenly Father. I hope He is your Father, too!
