A Good Word For You Today…Part 2


Part 2 – Observations that I saw today from the story

  • The Younger brother response: admitting that he messed up first in the sight of God, then acknowledging his mess and rebelliousness to his father of what he had said and did to him and finally his turning from the pleasure of the world and turning back to his father’s house asking for a position in the house on his father’s terms NOT asking for his old room and stuff back
  • The Father’s response – allowing the son to leave, running to greet him upon returning home after he came to his senses and go out to greet him so others who may have seen him would not harm him.  Daddy welcomed him with happiness, having a celebration party and not reminding the son of his foolishness, dad was happy that the school of life had brought him to his senses to come home
  •  The Elder brother response to his return (The ‘mature’ saints in the house (church response)) – He does not deserve anything for what he did and WHAT ABOUT ME!  Why?  I have been here and what do I get out of it?  Displaying something that was deep within for a long time that allowed the enemy of God and man something to corrupt him. [Read John 14:30 NKJV warning to believers]
  •  And the THRID SON – the son of love (Jesus) who is telling us this story and how HE responds to lost people!

Question to consider today:

Which son have you been actively playing in this life towards others in this story?

Today intentionally: WIN in every area of your life.

Nelson Mandela once said, “I never lose. I either win or I learn.” I consider these among a select group of words I live by. Losing is not final; it represents the opportunity to try again with more knowledge than you had last time.
