The Perfect Father

Some years ago (as the para-church group, “Promise Keepers,” debuted), there was an outpouring of concern shown for the absentee fathers in this country. They were making babies, but then making-off without sharing the responsibility of raising all those children. These less-than-real-men were, and are, worse than most beasts. They impregnate women and little girls (abusing and raping…like the savage barbarians they are…with wild and senseless abandon), producing children that will never know their real dad (a good thing in most cases). And the only time these animals might seriously think about it again, is when they find themselves burning in a devil’s hell on Judgement Day.

     By God’s ideal plan, a child should have both a mother and a father. However, there are a great many fatherless children in this mis-guided world. Just ask any of these fatherless kids if they would like to have a daddy, and ponder this from God’s Word: “Even if my father and mother abandon me, the Lord will hold me close” (Ps. 27:10, NLT) [‘the Lord will take me in’ -Easy-to-Read Version]. This does not automatically apply to every single person, far from it; and certainly not those like the ‘animals’ mentioned above. For God to become one’s perfect heavenly Father, they must truly believe and follow His wise instructions. It makes perfect sense.

        “To all who believed Him and accepted Him, He gave the right to become children of God. They are reborn – not with a physical birth resulting from human passion or plan, but a birth that comes from God.” (Jn. 1:12–13, NLT)

     From his book, “Wisdom of Our Fathers,” Tim Russert wrote, “the most precious things a father can provide are time, attention, and love.” God, the perfect Father, will do that for every one of His children, every minute of the day, forever… just as soon as they are born again into His family!

By God’s ideal plan, a child should have both a mother and a father. But what does God say about kids with absentee parents in Psalm 27:10?
