Day 106: The Prodigal Son (1 Samuel 19-21, Luke 15:11-32)

Have you ever made a mistake for which you thought you could never be forgiven? In your head, your mistake seems so big and bad; how could anyone, let alone God, forgive you for what you’ve done?

I’ve definitely made my fair share of mistakes and I’ve always been able to walk through those mistakes with my faith intact. But it’s not the memories of my past mistakes that help me when things get difficult, it’s always the Word of God, particularly the parable of the Prodigal Son that helps me to remember that I am forgiven and saved by grace. In this parable, the son asks for his inheritance early and squanders it. When he returns to his father, he is ashamed of the mistakes he made, but his father rejoices and welcomes the son home.

So, remember, if you make a mistake, you are a daughter of the King and you are always welcome back to your Father’s house. You are never too far gone or too sinful. You are always worth saving – worth a second chance. God doesn’t give up easily, especially when it comes to saving your soul.
