Some people mischaracterize God the Father as only judgment and righteousness. While these are true characteristics, there is much more to our gracious heavenly Father. Is it possible that far too often as Christians we mentally compartmentalize the Trinity? Perhaps we think of the Spirit as empowerment and knowledge, the Son as meekness and love, and the Father as judgment and righteousness. But is this how God is revealed in Scripture?

This view includes the concepts that God had purpose in what He created and that it originally was very good.
