To get an even better picture, we could take the best aspects from each of the best parents we know and knit them together to produce the best picture of parenting that could possibly be seen on this planet.

Yes, God is the perfect parent in all ways, so will eventually bring us all into mature, responsible adulthood, ready to enjoy fellowship with him in eternity.
Some of us are more wayward than others, but the Perfect Parent’s love wins and restores all his children in the end and prepares them to live happily in harmony with him and with each other forever.

Personally, I find it much easier to love, worship and serve the One who is kind and forgiving and has my best interests at heart than someone who is presented as angry, vengeful and looking for reasons to exclude me from his amazing heaven.
