A Loving Father
by Charles R. Swindoll

How blessed are the people who know 
the joyful sound! . . . O LORD, they walk 
in the light of Your countenance.
Psalm 89:15


Contrary to popular opinion, God doesn't sit in heaven with His jaws clenched, His arms folded in disapproval, and a deep frown on His brow. 

He is not ticked off at His children for all the times we trip over our tiny feet and fall flat on our diapers. 

He is a loving Father, and we are precious in His sight, the delight of His heart. After all, He "has qualified us to share in the inheritance of the saints in Light" (Colossians 1:12). Think of it! He's put us in His inheritance!

Remember that the next time you think God is coming down on you. 

You have reason to give thanks. You don't have to qualify yourself for His kingdom. His grace has rescued you.
