The story of the Prodigal Son is a beautiful illustration of God, the Father, anxiously waiting for us to come home to Him, no matter where we’ve been or what we’ve done. Nothing we do can ever keep Him from loving us and accepting us as His children. His love for us far exceeds our sin — and He longs for us to return to Him.
Just like in the story of the prodigal son, God is waiting for us to come back to Him. And often, He allows the pain in our lives to bring us back. No matter how many mistakes we’ve made, He’s promised to restore all that’s broken if we only return to Him!
The prodigal son parable gave Jesus the opportunity to show us a picture of God the Father anxiously waiting for us to come to Him, no matter where we’ve been or what we’ve done. There’s nothing that’ll ever keep Him from loving us and accepting us as His child!
