Relating to God – 3 – God as Our Father
With this installment of the series, Relating to God, we next consider how God intervenes in our lives to promote connection with us. Are you aware of his efforts? Ever held the door for someone at the mall and they’re so busy they don’t notice? It’s never good to be oblivious to God.

We’re in the third on a series called Relating to God. And this third one is called God As Our Father.
Last week we did the second in our series on Relating to God. And we saw how our physical life, as children, affects our relationship with God, as adults. Today we’re going to talk about how God responds to us in that series – how God is our Father.
You’ll remember that we talked about the baby in the crib and how human babies have a need, and then when that need gets to a certain level, they start crying, and then the parents respond and take care of the needs, and then the baby re-regulates and gets satisfied, then, after a while, they have a need, and they cry, and the parents respond. So this cycle continues over and over and over again, day in and day out, week in and week out, month in and month out through the first year of life. Babies learn, if they’re taken care of consistently, that their parents love them, that they’re going to take care of them, and they develop a positive attitude about themselves and the world around them.
