So he got up and went to his father. “But while he was still a long way off, his father saw him and was filled with compassion for him; he ran to his son, threw his arms around him and kissed him.”
I find great comfort in how you tell us the father reacted to the lost son coming home. It reminds me that each time I turn back home to you and the father that you welcome me with open arms. There is nothing so warm as a forgiving hug. You are mine and I am yours. I have a place, a home with you. My soul is at peace knowing you forgive me of every single wrong. Help me show others they have the same home with you.

God is filled with compassion for us. What an incredible thought.
