A son from a wealthy family said to his father, “I demand that you give me my share of the inheritance now. His father graciously agreed, allowing the son to take his new wealth and head to Las Vegas. In just a few months of wild living and blackjack he lost it all. Growing hungry he took a job cleaning dishes, eat- ing table scraps until he thought, “The servants in my father’s house eat much better than this. I’ll go back and perhaps they’ll take me back as a servant. When he approached his home, his father saw him coming and passionately ran to embrace him and instead of treating him like a servant, covered him with a princely robe. This story from Luke 15 reminds us that when we are ready to come home spiritually, God will immediately cover our sins and welcome us back into his family!
“We had to celebrate and be glad, because this brother of yours was dead and is alive again. He was lost and is found.” Lk 15:32
