THE DISOBEDIENT SON

Luke 15:13
And not many days after the younger son gathered all together, and took his journey into a far country, and there wasted his substance with riotous living. [KJV]


Every child at some point has loved something his or her parents did not like. However, parents will correct their children when they are wrong, but will not disown them. As a matter of fact, parents consciously and unconsciously train their children to become like them. A child is therefore a product of the strength and weaknesses of his parents.

God, like our earthly parents will not disown us because we do wrong, however, he would correct us until we become like Him. The gravity of the correction may vary from light to heavy. For example, the prodigal son suffered hunger, lack and worked as a servant for a while, Jonah stayed three days in the belly of a fish; Jacob served twenty one years for what God would have given him for free.

Do you know that disobedience usually leads to a punishment? Many have achieved little, others lived a short life and so many are struggling without progress because they disobey God. Thankfully, God has kept you alive so you can repent and turn back to Him. If you will turn to God in repentance, He will welcome you with a feast.

Go into today knowing that God has not given up on you. You may have missed it, but when you turn back to Him, you will find Him ever ready to welcome you with a feast.

Prayer: make a prayer of repentance if you have missed it. Pray for your brothers and sisters who want to return to God. Not yet saved? Click: http://bit.ly/1iTOmol
