Some imagine God as an angry entity waiting to condemn and rain down fire and brimstone. Many people have difficulty viewing God as a loving father because their own fathers were emotionally or physically absent or abusive. Here are some bible verses for you to understand thoroughly your father.

“Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger, but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord.” Ephesians 6:4 ESV

“Fathers, don’t scold your children so much that they become discouraged and quit trying.”
Colossians 3:21 TLB

“The father of a righteous child has great joy; a man who fathers a wise son rejoices in him.”
Proverbs 23:24 NIV

“But while he was still a long way off, his father saw him and was filled with compassion for him; he ran to his son, threw his arms around him and kissed him.” Luke 15:20b NIV

“Listen to your father, who gave your life.” Proverbs 23:22 NIV

“Honor your father and your mother, so that you may live long in the land the LORD your God is giving you.” Exodus 20:12 NIV

“My son, do not reject the discipline of the Lord or loathe His reproof, for whom the Lord loves He reproves, even as a father corrects the son in whom he delights.”
Proverbs 3:11-12 NASB
