A Greater Father
If we choose not to face God as judge by coming to him through faith in Jesus, who is he to us? The answer—he is Father. And not just any father, but the perfect one. The problem is we don’t always feel that. By understanding the true role of a father in our life, we understand that everything happening in our lives is being used by the perfect Father to build us into the person we were created to be!

The answer is to keep our focus on what God has done.
