Scripture reference: 1 Samuel 16:7 (ESV)
This Father’s Day, I want you to see your father as God sees him.
When I think about fathers from a scriptural perspective, I think about Abraham who was a very faithful man as God ordained him — father of many nations. Abraham demonstrated a blind faith when he was willing to make the ultimate sacrifice by giving up his son Isaac because it was God’s will.
Abraham also had his flaws. We see this when he slept with his servant, and again when he claimed that Sarah was his sister instead of his wife. Despite all of this, God did not withdraw His promises from him.
For some of us, our dads could do no wrong. Our eyes weren’t big enough to see them. For others, including myself, we did not see our fathers. Let’s transcend that and embrace the idea of seeing our fathers as God sees them.
As you think about that, remember these words: “…For the Lord sees not as man sees: man looks on the outward appearance, but the Lord looks on the heart.” 1 Samuel 16:7 (ESV)
This has been your B Moment. Your moment to be still…to be fed by the Word of God…to be grateful.
