Origami is the Japanese art of folding paper. Let’s say you are in an Origami class and the teacher brings in a crisply folded paper boat complete with sails and a flag—it really looks like you could take a ride in it! You try to replicate the same boat. If you end up with something that vaguely resembles a boat, you’re brilliant. Unless you go through the step-by-step process and listen carefully to the experts, you have little hope of success. Being a father can be like that. There are models and instructions on how best to do it, but many ignore the advice, some don’t even try, while others make a good go of it. What is a good father? The Bible talks about the absolute model father, someone worth copying!
