In the Bible God is called a father. Contrary to misogynistic belief there is a profound revelation in attributing this title to God. In the reproduction process the woman holds the life and the male gives it. Why does this apply to us? Well we know in God’s eyes there is no longer male or female, Jew nor Gentile, slave or free man. But the title still applies because much like God is the giver of life, we too are called to give life, not just physically, but spiritually as well. Having a better understanding of who God is gives us a better understand of who we are and what our role is.
