Lessons from Luke: Chapter 15
Lesson #1: God always gives us more than we deserve
Luke 15:21 TPT
“Then the son said, ‘Father, I was wrong. I have sinned against you. I could never deserve to be called your son. Just let me be—’ “The father interrupted and said, ‘Son, you’re home now!’
This hits very close to home for me because you know, sometimes you just don’t think you deserve somethings but thankfully God does not think the way we do. Indeed his thoughts are higher and better. The prodigal son thought he just deserved to be a slave and he probably did but God thought he was worthy to be a son again. That’s our God, rich in mercy, abundant in love. I daresay He loves you more than you love yourself, regardless of what you think you deserve. What a soothing thought. Even when you think the worst of you God thinks the best! Good God!
