Fathers beam when they look down into the face of their children. They do not need to pass out cigars to announce the arrival of a baby; their expression delivers the message to all the family and friends who have been counting the days. No longer must he wait but now nervously holds the bundle and peers into the face of flesh of his flesh.
The Lord also looks down upon His children. “The Lord make his face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee; The Lord lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace (Numbers 6:25-26 KJV).” A father’s love is essential to a child in their formative years. God, our Father expects us to mature in the faith and when he looks down into our faces, I want him to beam.
