Little Children

by Vonette Bright

But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners.” Romans 5:8

Maybe your father mistreated you or was unkind.
Oh, dear one, is the image of your heavenly Father based on your earthly father?

Lily was abused as a teenager by her father.
She was even ordered to never again call him “Daddy.”

As Lily prayed and read God’s word, she learned that her heavenly Father was different.
The Bible says God showed His great love for you by sending Christ to die for you
while you were still a wrongdoer.

You know, God began to change Lily’s heart towards her father.
Rather than looking for her father to change, she began to
see him through God’s eyes of love.

It changed their earthly relationship.

Father God is merciful and loving. Cultivate a relationship with Him through prayer.

Then keep on talking to Him. He loves hearing from you.

    My ex use to emotionally abuse me & my 2 sons. I often considered leaving him for their sake, but hung in there for 21 years … he was a Baptist minister. I thought about forwarding this devotional to them, but decided not to. They might have a different image of him … that’s my image. They are now in their 40’s, both have 2 children, & are wonderful fathers.Their father’s influence bleeds through in their behavior now & then. They will have nothing to do with faith.

    I am very greatful to my Heavenly Father for His mercy and love to me so as I will shower my love to the people I know, especially my family members.
    Thank you Romans 5:8 ” But God showed His great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners.” Amen
