Fatherhood is an amazing gift from God to humanity. God did not just create the family as foundation of society, but he created males and females, husbands and wives, fathers and mothers. Both men and women have their unique functions and identity. A month ago we talked about women, about mothers and motherhood, about this particular ministry to God. Today we will look at men and fatherhood. Fatherhood is especially unique in that it is a reflection of God the Father. In revealing himself to humanity, God did not just disclose himself as Creator and Sovereign, but also as Father.
In many passages the Scripture calls God, Father. This comparison does not just help us understand God, but also fatherhood.
