Father

9  I will not execute my burning anger;
I will not again destroy Ephraim;
for I am God and not a man,
the Holy One in your midst,
and I will not come in wrath.

This chapter shows the true heart of a perfect father.  Love for a helpless child.  Pain as the child grows and rebels against their father’s ways.  Anger that melts away, replaced by a burning desire for reconciliation and a healed relationship.  This is the model  that You present to me, not just of how You love but of how I should love.

Help me Lord, as a father, to be full of love, slow to to anger and quick to hug.  Help me to be like You.
