Lent Reflections 2013-4

Luke 15:1–3, 11b–32

But while he was still far off, his father saw him and was filled with compassion; he ran and put his arms around him and kissed him.

(Luke 15:20b)

Sometimes we can find ourselves lost and alone, feeling cut off from God’s love and from the goodness of life. Like the so-called prodigal son we may think that we can go crawling back, begging God’s forgiveness and hoping against hope that God might at least allow us a little something. What a joyous surprise, then, that God – like the parent in the parable – runs to greet us, and surrounds us with an embrace of love and compassion. Take a moment simply to revel in the greatness of God’s love for you, and for all people.
