And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, FATHER. Gal. 4:6
God's not a "Parent" nor "Mother", but a "Father". The word "father" is the Greek word "pater" which means:
"Generator or male ancestor; The originator and transmitter of anything; God, the Father."
The concept of fatherhood or patriarchy confirms that ALL comes from or originates in Him. Pater is the root of such words as "patriarch" and "family" (patria). When we turn in faith to God, we are receiving the heart of a Patriarch.
