Imagine a dad tutoring his child, as any tutor will teach a student.

Imagine the child does well, and so Dad returns a smile of approval, as any good tutor would do.

But then, Dad can no longer restrain himself to his role as tutor. He laughs, he slaps his child affectionately on the back, they both laugh together, not as a teacher and student, but as only a father and child could do, Dad saying in his laugh,

“I always had this pride, this delight in you, that you are my child. I only needed this excuse to show it.”

Above, the One who is infinite and has created all things awaits His chance to laugh with us.
