If you then, 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! – Matthew 7:11 (ESV)
God is the best parent ever. It is important to remember that human parenting, at its best, resembles God’s loving parenting of us. Our best imitation must be nothing more than a dim reflection of His love for us. We are fortunate to be adopted as God’s children, which sets us apart from the rest of creation and assure us of a wonderful inheritance that will last forever!
Now may our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God our Father, who loved us and by his grace gave us eternal comfort and a wonderful hope, comfort you and strengthen you in every good thing you do and say. -2 Thessalonians 2:16-17 (NLT)
