Father and Son

Sometimes at work I do something that is really stupid. Then I think, “The boss will probably punish me and make me start over again at the bottom of the company.” But that has not happened yet!
In our Bible verses, we read about a son who did something really stupid. He took his share of his father’s money and wasted it all. He had nothing to eat, so he took a job feeding pigs. Finally, he decided to go back to his father.
When he saw his father, the son said, “Father, I have sinned against God and have done wrong to you. I am no longer worthy to be called your son” (verse 21b). The son knew that he had dishonored his father. He did not expect his father to treat him like a son again. But his father accepted him back and blessed him with many good things.
As Christians, we are God’s sons and daughters. Sometimes we become rebellious and disobey God. When we repent and come back to God, He accepts us as His son or daughter. Thank God today for His wonderful love!
