Dad, Why Do I Need Two Fathers, You And God?
We call God "our Father" because he created us, watches over us, and provides everything we need. He's like a human father, only perfect. God has given us human fathers and mothers to take care of us on earth. That's why God tells children to obey their parents and their heavenly Father - it's for their own good.
[Jesus is speaking] "You sinful men even know how to give good gifts to your children. So won't your Father in Heaven be sure to give good gifts to those who ask him for them?" (Matthew 7:11)
Exodus 20:12; Ephesians 6:1-3
