How to encourage a Father's love...

"If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him. He that loveth me not keepeth not my sayings..." - Jesus (John 14:23-24a KJV)
My heart is particularly touched when someone loves my child.

I know, firsthand, that observing genuine love for my child from someone I hardly know instantly changes my feelings. I may not have liked that person before, but I do now! The opposite is also true; no one who mistreats my children is ever friends with me!

I think this is a small taste of what Jesus meant. He said if a person will love him his Father (GOD) will return that love.
