“As a father has compassion on his children, so the Lord has compassion on those who fear him” -Psalm 103:13
I love being a dad. My family is my greatest calling before ANYTHING else (btw, that’s totally biblical!). I love being a husband and father. But I have a confession. I have four children. And especially with our last two girls, I questioned if I would have the same level of love for our new baby as I did for our other children. I loved my kids so much that I was afraid of how I would feel about another child. Would I love them as much? Can I love them as much? But every time we had a new baby, my love grew greater and deeper than what I even knew I was capable of. Love doesn’t follow the rules of percentages. It doesn’t stop at 100. As parents, our capacity for love is infinite. I love each of my children more than I thought I could love anything or anyone. I believe God give parents this gift to show us just a glimpse of how much God loves us. A mother’s love is so pure, and yet it still pales in comparison to God’s Love for His children. Follow after God and experience His Love in your life!
