THE PRODIGAL’S FATHER

03242018 Saturday

“So he got up and came to his father.  But while he was still a long way off, his father saw him and felt compassion for him, and ran and embraced him and kissed him” (Luke 15:20).

While some read the saga of the prodigal as a tale of a rebellious child, I have long seen it as a story of a father’s love; his desire to be reconciled; to see the relationship with his son to be restored. It is the gospel story of redeeming love; an active love that welcomes the return of the most defiant sinner…even you and me.
