Luke 15: 20-24
“But while he was still a long way off, his father saw him and was filled with compassion for him; he ran to his son, threw his arms around him and kissed him.
“The son said to him, ‘Father, I have sinned against heaven and against you. I am no longer worthy to be called your son.’
“But the father said to his servants, ‘Quick! Bring the best robe and put it on him. Put a ring on his finger and sandals on his feet. Bring the fattened calf and kill it. Let’s have a feast and celebrate. For this son of mine was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found.’ So they began to celebrate.
Today's thought from Miranda Warner
How does it feel to receive this abundant love from God, who sees your shortcomings clearly, and responds not only with forgiveness but with an embrace, an insistence that you belong, and with joyful celebration?
(adapted from Ephesians 3: 7, 20)
