Protector & Provider-Thursday Thought

Sing to God, sing praises to his name; lift up a song to him who rides through the deserts; his name is the Lord; exult before him! Father of the fatherless and protector of widows is God in his holy habitation. -Psalm 68:4-5 esv

What makes a man a real man? This a question that I believe every generation and society has to grapple with to find the truth. There are many ideals about what constitutes a man, but God has the truth. A real man has concern for those under his care. He ensures that those under his care are taken care of because he loves them and is concerned about them.

God is the ultimate Leader, Father, Protector, and Provider. He has great concern for those who are under His care. His love is immensely selfless. God makes the needs of His children a priority. He will do anything to take care of them; even send His Son to give up His life. God is the ultimate Father. This is not displayed through power or intimidation, but through love, care, and concern!
