Agape Love (2)

Our Bible Reading today is a great example of agape love. This is a story that Jesus told about a son who asked his father for his share of the family wealth. The father loved his son very much, so he gave his son what he asked for.
The son took the money and went away. He wasted the money, and soon he was poor and hungry. He decided to go home to his father.
Verse 20b says, “While the son was still a long way off, his father saw him coming and felt sorry for him. So he ran to him and hugged and kissed him.” At that time, it was not proper for older Jewish men to run. But the father did not care about that. He loved his son, and he ran to meet him.
This is the same kind of love that God has for us. God was willing to give up His only Son to help us have a closer relationship with Him. That is the perfect example of agape love.
