Weekly devotional based on the sermon of Sun., Mar. 6, 2016
The parable of the prodigal son who leaves the comfort of his home for a road less travelled experience is a story of utter forgiveness and unconditional love. At the heart of the story is a father’s utmost joy of being reunited with his son who once was lost but then found. The reunion calls for a celebration like no other.
Where do we find ourselves in this story, and how can one love, forgive, and forget without holding on to the past? Though we cannot change the past, we can only learn from it, move on, and re-build our future. Taking accountability and responsibility, any relationship is a two-way street - one gives and receives. Gifts from a loving God help us maintain healthy and loving relationships.
