    More Sermon Details:   
    A recent picture that went viral depicts a father standing next to his son in a drenching rainstorm. Though the businessman is getting soaked, he holds his umbrella over his child to protect his little one from the weather. Such protection of a father for his son is surely heartwarming—and right.

    In today's passage God offers the same image for himself with his people: a parent holding a child's hand. It is a tender description, more so than we may at first realize.

    But is this passage for us? What right do we have to claim it for ourselves? Furthermore, what if we don't want to be treated like children? What if the notion of God as father is actually a threat?
