A Good, Good Father

This past Sunday Joel preached on Matthew 5:21-48…or at least he meant to, but while preparing to preach he felt he should instead talk about why God asks us to obey and strive towards perfection.

Unlike God, our earthly fathers are not perfect, but except for the very worst of them, they try as best they can to do right, to do good for us, and in that, they are a tiny glimpse of our good father, God. So when Joel gets to preaching on the sermon Jesus preached, the one that ups the ante on our behaviour, attitude, and motivations, to a point that seems impossible; it is good to keep in mind that God is a good, good, father who lovingly guides us into doing, being, and thinking right.

Listen and be encouraged by the song by Christ Tomlin about our Good Good Father: Good Good Father by Chris Tomlin
