Read Luke 15:20 (read all of 15:11-32 if you have the time)
And he arose and came to his father. But while he was still a long way off, his father saw him and felt compassion, and ran and embraced him and kissed him.
Prayer: Jesus told the story of the Prodigal Son to show us an example of the way that God loves us. And no matter how far off the path we’ve strayed, when we come back he’s not only waiting with open arms, he’s running out to meet us before we even get there. God seeks us out because he loves us so much. And that’s how he calls us to love. Thank God for the beautiful grace, forgiveness, and joy that he offers, and pray that he would fill you with the same run-out-to-meet-them love.
