13 As a father shows compassion to his children,so the Lord shows compassion to those who fear him
14 For he knows our frame; he remembers that we are dust.
Luther said in the introduction to the Lord’s Prayer that “God tenderly invites us to believe that He is our true Father and that we are His true children, so that with all boldness and confidence we may ask Him as dear children ask their dear father.”
In what way does God want us to be encouraged when the word Father is applied to Him?
How does God remembering where we came from assure us that we can rely on Him to be compassionate to us?
