God has mad parenting skills

God decided in advance to adopt us into His own family by bringing us to. Himself through Jesus Christ. This is what He wanted to do and it gave Him great pleasure. Eph. 1:5

Each of us is a wanted child.  The unique inclusion of each one of us in His family causes the Father pleasure. And he knew He was adopting kids, not already well-mannered, well groomed,appropriately motivated adults. He loves being a hands-on parent walking each of us through our uniquely messy growing-up process.

Lord, thank you for being a loving and wise parent to this child.
