"The overarching guide for every father should be to live in such a way that his children can see what God the Father is like. They ought to see in their human father a reflection—albeit imperfect—of the heavenly Father in his strength and tenderness, in his wrath and mercy, in his exaltation and condescension, in his surpassing wisdom and patient guidance. The task of every human father is to be for his children an image the Father in heaven." John Piper

Amen. I have a lot to live up to... but God is faithful, even when I fall short. Thanks for the reminder... and to give it to me from a John Piper sermon, well, I'm all ears!
