No yelling. No screaming. How the father teach his daughter how to handle a bad temper is so touching! This is the most important lesson he taught her, She has boundaries and HE respects them.
No matter how patient you are or how good you are, at some point in your life, you have felt anger. We, at many points in our lives, lose our tempers. We all got to a point where we lose control of our emotions. But this particular story actually tells us, how a father handled his infuriating child. How the father, strong as he is, handled his fuming child with such gentleness and love. This particular story is so heart-warming, opening our eyes to what a father’s love should be.
We live in a fatherless generation. Some are blessed to have a loving father, but most haven’t even experienced how it is to be loved by a father. Some grew up with an abusive father and some with an absentee father. And there are those who didn’t even have the chance to get to know their fathers. You see? This is how our world looks like. Fatherlessness plagues one family to another.
This is maybe the reason why this video went viral: Because many are longing to experience that kind of love from their fathers. Oh how we long to have someone who sits down with us, listens to us, and teaches us every time we came to that point of losing control. This fatherless generation longs for that protective, disciplining, yet gentle love of a father.
You cannot give what you do not have. Love begets love. But the biggest love already recorded in Romans 5:8 it says there:
“But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”
We may have different experiences with our earthly fathers but this is for sure: You are a child of God and He loves you with an everlasting love.
“See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him.” — 1 John 3:1
