The Parable of the Lost Son
Is it possible that even though the Father demonstrated in many varied ways his total acceptance of his son on his return home, that the son may have had difficulty in believing it? Is it possible the ending of this story was in fact just a new beginning between Father and son? Is it possible that the Father would have to continue to address issues in the son’s life?
Without a progressive awareness of His unchangeable and unconditional love, it would be easy for the son to believe that the Father was in fact picking on him.
Is it possible that some of these issues were in fact issues of the soul?
The Truth will either be my greatest friend or worst enemy.
Is it Truth you are seeking, then be prepared to have your soul shaken (sifted) to the core.
The proof of Father’s love for us is His continuing correction.
