Message by Pastor David Whitmore for June 17: What Does A Good Father Look Like?

This week I talk about a man God called to be a father of a great nation but what kind of father was he to his children. This is the story of Abraham but it is probably not the story you are thinking about. Our scripture verse this week is Genesis 21: 8-21. This is the Story of Sarah being so jealous over Ismael the son of Abraham from Hagar that she tells Abraham to send them away. Abraham the father did not want to do this but Abraham the husband felt like he had no choice. It was a difficult situation but God assured him he would take care of Ismael and Hagar and to do what his wife had said. This story is really not about how good a father Abraham is but how good our heavenly father is
