Re:Verse reading–Matthew 6:1-18 (day five) “Then your Father. . .will reward you” (vs 4) My son is getting married this weekend. Holly and I are pleased and proud of Alex and Laura for the people that they have become and the choices they have made. As the weekend approaches, my chest is filling with powerful emotions. Among them is a desire to give things to my son. . .advice, time, encouragement, money. Whatever I have. Whatever he needs. Nothing is more predictable. Jesus used to talk about the Father who would give bread not stones. (Luke 11). Jesus was CONVINCED beyond any argument that the heavenly Father would reward His children in the same way. It is just how fathers are! The determined purpose of a perfect Father is to pour out His love, even on imperfect children. Hmmmm. . . God feels about me like I feel about Alex and Andrew (even more so). It is a good reminder that I should have hope!
