The Opposite of Love

The Lord Jesus Christ taught us to call Him Father (Luke 11:2; Matt. 6:9). Dora learned through biblical counseling that she matters to God and that she has the privilege of calling Him Father, Abba. God the Father values His children; He is kind and loving and will care for and nurture His children when an earthly father will not. He hears our cries in the night (Ps. 55:17). He answers our pleas for help (Ps. 34:17; 6:9). He is is our ever present help in time of need (Ps. 46:1).

Women in abusive relationships don’t want to believe the man they love is really the monster other people tell her he is.
