Our Parental Father

Many times in our world
we are discouraged in helping our kids,
especially if they’re grown up
or even have their own kids.
Yet God is our example
in how he’s always there for us.
His love is giving and patient,
as well as good and just.
There is a need to grow and learn,
and a pleasure in seeing fruit,
but God is a parent who knows
we are always seeking the truth.
He also knows that though we learn,
we still are able to fail,
and just like a sympathetic father,
he longs to make us feel well.
Don’t give up on your kids,
and give them all you can.
God never gives up on us,
and walks us hand in hand.
