In the June 2, 2012, issue of his Turning Point Daily Devotional, David Jeremiah writes: Dads are imperfect people, and it only takes a single thoughtless mistake to create misfortune. On a recent Saturday night, for example, a man in New York pulled into a convenience store to buy a drink, leaving his car running. A thief jumped into the vehicle and took off, not realizing the owner’s 6-year-old son was asleep in the backseat. Thankfully, the boy slept through the whole ordeal. He was safe and sound—and still asleep—when officials found him inside the abandoned vehicle a half-hour later. The thief wasn’t caught, but the dad was charged with endangering the child.
All dads make mistakes—some worse than others—but there is one Father who will never make a mistake, let us down, endanger our lives, risk our well-being, leave us or forsake us. He loves us with an everlasting love, and nothing can separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
