What Is A Millstone?

When you think of God’s Wrath, what do you think of? Is it something terrifying? How about a guy with a hammer? How about an exploding star? I’ve seen some and created a dramatic imagery of my own.

How about the love of the Father? For me, this proved to be challenging. I couldn’t come up with one. However, my Father did have an answer.
