God Forgives

Maybe you have done terrible things in your life. And maybe you think God could never forgive you. But God can forgive each of us, no matter what we have done.
The Bible tells us about many people who did wrong things. Jacob lied. King David committed adultery. Jonah tried to run away from God. Saul arrested and killed Christians. But God offered His forgiveness to all these people.
In our Bible Reading today, the young man left home. He did bad things and wasted his money. Later, the young man realized that he was wrong. He decided to go back home. Verse 20b says, ?While the son was still a long way off, his father saw him coming. The father felt sorry for his son. So the father ran to him. He hugged and kissed his son.?
When we sin, God wants to forgive us. He is waiting for us to admit we are wrong and decide to change. The father in our Bible Reading forgave his son. In the same way, God forgives us. Let God forgive you today.
