"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..." (Luke 15:20, ESV).
The story told by Jesus in Luke 15 of a son who came back home is one of the greatest stories of hope you will ever read. It magnifies within our hearts the amazing love, mercy, and grace of God. It takes us into the heart of God and helps us view through His eyes those among His children who wander away from Him. It illuminates the terrible consequences that sin brings to our lives. And it should stir the wandering child of God to "come to his/her senses" and to return back to their Father.
