In what is known as one of the greatest short stories ever told, Jesus gives us a picture of the love that God the Father has for His children. Whether through temptation, ignorance, or defiance, we have all rejected God at some point in our lives. We went our own way and tried to do life on our own. The amazing thing about our God is that He loves us through it all. We see this prodigal son return to open arms and a father full of love.
