The Prodigal Father
A.W. Tozer once wrote: “What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us.”
Our conception of God is what shapes who we are, how we see the world and how we live our lives. For many of us, what we think about God is largely determined by our earthly father. Some see God as loving, others as angry and controlling. Some see Him as supportive, others as a detached Deity whose disinterested and disengaged. In the parable most know as that of the Prodigal Son, we see the picture of a Father who is reckless in His forgiveness, extravagant in His love and lavish in His grace. This is the very definition of “prodigal.” No matter what you've done or who you feel you’ve become, it’s time to come home to your Prodigal Father!
