The Fatherhood of God

What do we think of a man who fathers children, then abandons them?  Maybe he never even stays long enough to see his child’s birth or to know its gender.  We don’t think much of such fathers.  Why, then, would any of us think God is a distant diety who initiated certain processes for life on earth and then left that life to fend for itself?  Do we think good, caring human fathers are better persons than God?
