Lost (3)

The third story that Jesus told is my favorite. This story is about a son who took his family money and went away. Then this son wasted all his money “living like a fool” (verse 13b). When all his money was gone, the only job he could find was feeding pigs. This son was so hungry that he wanted to eat the pigs’ food!
Finally the son decided to go home to his father and ask for forgiveness. “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” (verse 20). The son did not deserve his father’s forgiveness, but the father accepted him back as his son.
We have all sinned and disobeyed God. We don’t deserve God’s forgiveness. But God still offers us His love and mercy. No matter how bad you think your sins are, God can forgive you and make you part of His family.
Turn to God today — He loves you and will forgive all your sins.
