"The title father is sacred and eternal. It is significant that of all the titles of respect and honor and admiration that are given to Deity, He has asked us to address Him as Father." -Quorum of the Twelve ApostlesThe Proclamation teaches us that "the family is central" to our Heavenly Father's plan. Our purpose here on earth is to become more like our Heavenly Father, and just as we have heavenly parents, we have the opportunity to be parents here on earth. Being parents gives us a small opportunity to understand better how Heavenly Father feels about us, his children. Not only should we take this responsibility seriously, but it is something we should appreciate and cherish.
I love this church video from Father's Day.
