In My Father's House

"For whom the LORD loves He corrects, Just as a father the son in whom he delights." (Proverbs 3:12 NKJV) Just as our human father raised us, so our Heavenly father trains us in the way we should live. God puts boundaries on us, and there are consequences to breaking those boudaries. God will discipline us and scold us when necessary, but at the same time He also loves us unconditionally. And, God only wants what is best for us. God also wants His children around Him. In fact, He is building a house for all of us to be with Him someday. Jesus says, "In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you." (John 14:2 NKJV) So, honor your father (and mother) that it may go well with you and be sure to spend time with both of your fathers today! Love, Beau

I only have one father left. You're right, I need to spend more time with him today. I think I'm going to do that now. :)
