FATHERHOOD

When the writer was searching in the old theology for a clearer and nearer sense of God, and the ability to realize more of the practical truth of Jesus' words as recorded in the gospels, she was greatly impressed one day by the behavior of a dear little girl of her acquaintance, the daughter of a minister of the town, who was known to many as cherishing a very strong affection for her father, almost to the exclusion of the other members of the family.

At one time the child's mother was obliged to go away for an indefinite length of time in order to care for a relative who needed her. On meeting this little girl during her mother's absence, the writer offered her sympathy, when the child lifted her eyes in wonder and quickly said, "But I have father!" The thought then came, How satisfying it would be if one could always know God as indeed our Father, and as the years passed, to grow more and more into the fulness of it.
