1 parable, 2 stories. The younger son went away and squandered all his wealth. The older son stayed and worked, reluctantly. Both had broken relationships. Both have one appropriate response. “Father, I’m unworthy. Have mercy on me.”
No matter what we’ve done, that’s our only appropriate response too. And the Father has mercy on you! And He continues to have mercy on you!
- Joshua 5:9-12
- 2 Corinthians 5:16-21
- Luke 15:1-3, 11b-32
What is faith? It’s more than just information. It’s life. It can be easy to go to Church on Sunday to check the box and then move on with the rest of your life. But Jesus calls us to live out our faith in all that we do. So, how do you take what you hear on Sunday and live it out in your family and in your community? Through reflection and practice. At PewTalk Podcast, we reflect on God’s word and give practical starting points to live out your faith in your family and in your community.
