Lent day 18 reflection – 06 March 2021

My dear brothers and sisters in Christ Jesus,

Today we look at the story of the prodigal son. For years we have heard quotes from this story. We’ve heard examples, we’ve heard so many explanations about this story.

From whichever angle and as much as we read this story, it always takes us deeper in Christ Jesus.

The story of the prodigal son has two main people in it… the father and the son.

And the intimacy between the father and son is so apparent, even when the son goes away. It means that whatsoever the circumstance is, whatever the situation, God is always looking out for us. As the father looked for the son.

It is His love, God’s love, and His gaze looking out for us that gives us the direction to come back.

Just three things are required of us today:

1. To think of the Father’s house

2. To turn towards the Father’s house

3. To begin the journey to the Father and His house

The Father is waiting for us today. Let us be on our way.

Have a blessed and Jesus-filled day!

In Jesus’ Name.
