Like a father

Great daily emunah lesson

H. commented on her Facebook page, "We pray and ask G-d to have mercy on us like a father has to a son.
Why the analogy with a father instead of a mother?
Our sages explain that the mercy a mother has on a child can be without restrictions. She might not have the heart to wake her son up to go and pray, but rather sympathizes with him and allows him to sleep longer etc. Or perhaps when she sees her child is trying to take a needless break from learning, she might accept it
...
A father has mercy and compassion for a child with the right amount of stringency. He does not let his emotions overpower the level of education and nurture he would like to instil .
That is the type of sympathy we want from the Almighty. Understanding, love and compassion with the right amount of limitations."
