Our Wonderful Father: 7 Verses for Father’s Day
This Father’s Day, reflect on what the Bible says about God the Father.
At the heart of Scripture stands a heavenly Father who loves his children. Here are just a few of the Bible’s beautiful descriptions of God the Father:
- He embraces rebellious prodigals. (Luke 15:11)
- He comforts the brokenhearted. (Psalm 34:18)
- He numbers the hairs on our heads. (Luke 12:7)
- He hears us when we pray. (1 John 5:14)
- He loves giving good gifts. (Matthew 7:11)
- He never changes. (Malachi 3:6)
He can do infinitely more than we could ever ask or imagine. (Ephesians 3:20)
Perhaps you’ve tasted God’s love and comfort as you’ve interacted with your own parents or children. Or maybe your experience with fatherhood has been characterized by deep heartache, pain, and disappointment.
Whether your heart is light or heavy this Father’s Day, you can reach out to a God who is intimately near his children. Consider reading through the above verses on your own or with your family. You can also check out this blog about the love and justice of our heavenly Father.
