Some questions for you to probe and ponder:
  1. What recollections do you have about your dad?
  2. How has your relationship with your dad affected you? Others? Your view of God?
  3. How can fathers love their children (Ex 20:5; Dt 5:9; 6:5; Col 3:19; Eph 5:25)?
  4. Why do you think Jesus teaches us to call God "Father" (Mt 6:9; Lk 11:2)?
  5. When his son Absalom died, how did King David express the heart of a father (2 Sam 18:33)?
  6. What is God like according to Isa 9:6; Ex 34:6-7; Ps 103:13; Lk 15:11-32?
  7. Why is Jesus the way to the Father (Jn 14:6; Mt 27:46; Mk 15:34)?
