Love Finds a Way

Genuine love seeps through the edges. It finds a way to be expressed, when it’s difficult & even unwelcome. I say this, having read Jesus’ Prodigal Son parable this morning. Despite the behavior of the riotous & righteous sons, the father’s actions were the same with each one – going out to reconcile & connect. Both sons had different reactions, but genuine love finds a way to express itself in ways that would be meaningful & transformational to the recipient.
So, will you let God love you today? Will you be available to experience God’s Love however God would choose to express this genuine love?
We are all prodigals in various ways, but genuine love seeps through the cracks & soaks into the hard spots because that’s what love does!

prodigal or orphan?

Being without parents can be challenging – sometimes we may feel like our parents have abandoned us, like an orphan.  Sometimes, we leave our parents for various reasons.  Thankfully with God as our Father, we are never orphans & our Heavenly Father is the epitome of acceptance & restoration (like the father in the Prodigal’s Son parable).  Let’s be careful that we don’t treat our Heavenly Father in the same context of our earthly parents – responding to Him as an orphan or prodigal.  God is the perfect Father & perhaps the various disappointments that we may have with our earthly parents are only to serve as reminders that the human experience is a flawed metaphor for the reality of the Genuine Love of our Heavenly Father 🙂

Saving Moses is an expression of the Father’s Genuine Love 🙂
