The Bible tells of a prodigal son, who took his inheritance and left his father's house to pursue the things of this world. Realizing his mistake, he returned home and his father welcomed him with open arms!
Luke 15: 11, 13, 17-18, 20 - "... A certain man had two sons: 13 ... the younger son gathered all together, and took his journey into a far country, and there wasted his substance with riotous living. 17 And when he came to himself, he said, How many hired servants of my father's have bread enough and to spare, and I perish with hunger! 18 I will arise and go to my father, and will say unto him, Father, I have sinned against heaven, and before thee, 20 And he arose, and came to his father ... his father saw him, and had compassion, and ran, and fell on his neck, and kissed him."
It's easy to get caught up in the things of this world, but we soon learn it's not as good as it seems. Like the prodigal, when we go astray and are ready to come home, our Heavenly Father will be there to embrace us in His loving arms.
Ponder this: "If all we see is what we see, then we will never see all that there is to be seen." (author unknown)
