"Father Knows Best" was a popular television series during the 1950s which portrayed ideal middle class family life in the Mid-west. Robert Young portrayed Jim Anderson as the husband to Margaret and the father of three children. He was a responsible man who loved his wife and children. And even though he owned the biggest insurance company in town, he never let his business get in the way of family life; he did what was best for his family. Whenever one or more of his children had a problem, he thoughtfully gave them wise advice.

The reason why children go to their parents for advice and help is because they often do not know what is best for themselves. However, because a parent has passed through that stage of life, they can understand what the child is going through, where he or she is headed and what they will face along the way.

In life, even beyond childhood, we still need someone to whom we can turn for advice and guidance. Often, we have difficult decisions to make about finances, education, relationships and work. But our most perplexing questions come when we face spiritual matters. Questions like: What happens after we die? Can I be sure about going to Heaven? Why am I even alive?

Fortunately, we can go to God with these questions and concerns. He has the answers we desire, and he definitely knows best. God not only wants to answer your questions, but He wants to have a relationship with you. He wants to become your Heavenly Father. As your Heavenly Father, God will comfort you, guide you, always be there with you, and provide you with the instructions you need to handle any situation you face if you just ask Him.

Do you want to begin a relationship with God as your Heavenly Father? Allow me to show you how.
