Awe-inspiring Views of the Father in the Parable of the Prodigal Son

We have had distorted views of the Father ever since the Fall, but the Parable of the Prodigal Son gives us a mind-boggling view of God. Here Jesus gives us the picture of His Father (Luke 15:11-32).

1.) The Father’s Generosity
-He gives grace and wealth to sinners who don’t deserve any good thing
-He showers blessings to His enemies

2.) The Father’s Joy
-Many times, we forget that God the Father finds joy in bringing prodigals home
-He is quick to accept and embrace those who return to Him

3.) The Father’s Pain
-He feels pain when His children are lost
-He is sorrowful for those who go astray
