Day 148: The Honor to Be Called “Father”

“Father! – to God himself we cannot give a holier name.” — William Wordsworth

Even God, who is the mightiest of all, is still known by the designation of Heavenly Father. If it is good enough for him, then it should be more than good enough for the rest of us men to take on and to wear as a badge of honor, to be called as the Father of us all.

Indeed, we should pattern our own earthly fatherhood after His divine fatherhood, studying the things that make Him great and trying to incorporate those things into our lives. We should be an extension of his love here on earth so that our children get to know their Heavenly Father through knowing their earthly one.
