If God is our Father, what does he expect from us? Jesus teaches us how a child of God should relate to the Father - in unreserved obedience.
When we know God’s thoughts and character, we develop a greater sense of security and purpose – we know we are secure in His hand and that He always wants the best for us.
We are so busy and active, it is hard to just quiet down, and seek a moment alone with God. Yet it is exactly for the hustle and bustle of life, that we need to spend time in God's secret place - the place of intimacy with God.
If we want to live as children of God, we need to learn to love our enemies and be kind to the unthankful. Because this is what our Father in Heaven does - all the time.
