What is a father?

Luke 3:38
the son of Enosh,
the son of Seth,

the son of Adam,
the son of God.

Malachi 2:10a
Do we not all have one Father? Did not one God create us?

Mark 14:36
“Abba, Father”

Galatians 4:6
Because you are his sons,

God sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts,

the Spirit who calls out, “Abba, Father.”

3 qualities of our Heavenly Father

1. He loves you (John 3:16)

2. He is always ready to listen to you

Jeremiah 33:3
‘Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.’

3. He disciplines his children because he loves them.

Proverbs 3:11-12 My son, do not despise the LORD’s discipline,

and do not resent his rebuke, because the LORD disciplines those he loves,

as a father the son he delights in.

God is a father to the fatherless.

Psalm 68:5
A father to the fatherless, a defender of widows, is God in his holy dwelling.

Psalm 10:14
But you, God, see the trouble of the afflicted;

you consider their grief and take it in hand.

The victims commit themselves to you; you are the helper of the fatherless.
