‘So he got up and went to his father.
But while he was still a long way off,
his father saw him and was filled with compassion for him;
he ran to his son, threw his arms around him and kissed him.’
Tax collectors, Pharisees, teachers of the law and sinners, all gathered to hear Jesus. He told them of a loving father, waiting and longing to forgive the son who had forsaken him. His story showed the great depth of an earthly father’s love but it also points to the immeasurable, enduring love of our Heavenly Father for us.
