In the Disney movie, The Lion King, Mufassa is a strong, yet loving father to his son. Growing up, I always thought he was the perfect combination of being wise sometimes, serious sometimes and fun sometimes. Though he was the king, he still took time for his son and tried to protect him, but wasn’t above rolling around wrestling with him in moments of leisure. He was also such a good father that his son felt intimidated trying to live up to his father’s standards and so ran away from his responsibilities for a long time.
Both our earthly fathers and our Heavenly Father have left us with an inheritance. In the eyes of God, we are all kings in training. The Scriptures promise that God wants to give us everything that he has, that we only need to step up and claim our birthright.
