Fatherhood Indicative of Personality
Matthew 6:9
After this manner therefore pray you: Our Father which are in heaven, Hallowed be your name.

You never say Father, to a force; Father, to a law; Father, to a mist; Father, to a mile, nor to infinite millions of miles in a line; "Father " is not the name for Thought apart from the Thinker, nor for Friendship apart from the Friend; nor for a Link, though the first link in a long chain of grand phenomena. If we mean more than a figurative father, we mean by that word a living Person.

(Dr. Stanford.)
