Remembering "A Father like Abraham"
God looks at a person’s heart. He looked at Abraham’s heart and saw faith. He didn’t make a checklist of things Abraham had done right and wrong. He overlooked the mistakes. In a nutshell, Abraham loved God and God loved Abraham. That’s the father of our faith. Not a perfect man. But nevertheless, a man we revere. God loves our earthly fathers too and commands us to honor them (Exodus 20:12). If God can overlook Abraham’s mistakes , then who are we to do anything less than honor our fathers? We all have a father like Abraham – not perfect, but God loves him, and so do we.
