What is a "father"?  According to the Oxford Living Dictionary, "A simple definition of “father” is that of a man in relation with his children".  What about the concept of a "Heavenly Father" -  is that much different? Or is the idea that surrounds good earthly fathers rather a reflection of the One Who created them?    Fathers are not just in this temporal realm and can be all sorts of men of influence in our lives.  God as our Heavenly Father, then, is the template or the design we should look to as a parent, and especially if one is a father.  What traits does God our Father show, that we are expected to emulate? 
Scripture tells us that God is the giver of all good gifts and that He tenderly cares for His own.  He loves, provides for, corrects, teaches, trains, and even chastises us so that we might be fully grown into honorable and strong people that trust and reflect His wisdom and grace.  Those are good things, and if we reflect the culture and training of our families, should we not also reflect the culture and training of our Heavenly Family?  Finally, knowing that God is a good, good Father, we must ask ourselves--have we been good children to Him?
