Our church had a wonderful lesson about charity this week. Many told inspiring stories of times when they had seen someone in need and filled that need. Others talked about organizations to sign up with to help give to refugees or to the homeless. And there were also stories about helping those in our own church.
The story of the Prodigal Son is about all of us, because it doesn't matter what reasons took us away from God. It only matters that He is always waiting for us to return, with open arms, without questions or recrimination. And perhaps it is the story about all of us because there will always be those who tell themselves that they did nothing wrong, that it isn't fair that God still loves us, that it isn't fair that we came home and were treated kindly.
