Our most basic model of God toward us is the parent to their child. Ideally, the parent should be modelling love and mercy to their children. Teaching them total acceptance and total love within a framework of expected behaviour without the fear of punishment as the motivation to obedience. As a parent I can attest this is VERY HARD for the flesh to accomplish. We have been blessed that God sends His Holy Spirit to help us in all things.
