Daily Devotion

“And he arose and came to his father. But while he was still a long way off, his father saw him and felt compassion, and ran and embraced him and kissed him.” (Luke 15:20, ESV)

The son had no money. He had no excuses. He had no idea how much his father had missed him. The boy had no idea the number of times his father had awakened from restless sleep, gone into the boy’s room, and sat on his bed. The son would never have believed the hours the father had sat on the porch next to the empty rocking chair, looking, longing to see that familiar figure, that stride, that face.

Prayer: Lord, your grace brings me to worship because you consistently wait for your children to return.
