Beau's Father's Day Sermon

"For whom the LORD loves He corrects, Just as a father the son in whom he delights...The Father loves the Son, and has given all things into His hand..For the Father loves the Son, and shows Him all things that He Himself does; " (Proverbs 3:12; John 3:35, 5:20a The Holy Bible, NKJV) Our heavenly father is just like one's father here on earth, only greater. God loves us like our earthly fathers do, and therefore he disciplines us as well. This is done, by both, in love for our own good. Because God loves us, he also teaches us how to follow in His footsteps and be just like Him. He is proud of us and wants us to be a reflection of Him. But, the best part of all is that if we love Him, and follow in His ways, we also, we are inheritors of all that He has. What an amazing gift! Another amazing gift is that He loves us unconditionally and loves us more than we can ever know. This also teaches us a deeply important example on how we should treat and raise our own children. When you honor your earthly fathers today, be sure to thank and honor you Heavenly father as well. He wants your attention, too! Love, Beau
