“too late to apologize?” #sorrynotsorry
This series is continuing to change my life and my perspective and I’ve already seen such growth and fruit in my life from these truths we’ve been learning! Specifically in my relationship with my oldest daughter. We have had such opportunities to talk through our apologies and it’s been so rich and so good!
This week my husband preached from Luke 15, when Jesus taught the story of the prodigal son.
This is such a powerful text! The beautiful picture of God and His love for us overflows from this story. As well as the prodigal’s redemptive story and the tragic outcome of the older brother.
My husband’s message pointed to the fact that it’s never too late to apologize and it’s never too late to do the right thing.
“Sin will take you further than you wanted to go, keep you longer than you wanted to stay, and make you do what you never thought you would do.”
I love how he pointed out that when the prodigal came to himself and realized what he had done (in the middle of the pig sty) he didn’t just say, “I should go back to my father,” but he DID it. He arose from the life he had chosen, and he started the long walk back.
My husband mentioned how God has given us a choice. He doesn’t force us to love Him, but He loves us SO deeply.
One of my favorite points was “there might not be a tomorrow” so we must do the right thing straight away, no delay.
Catch the message here, and have a fantastic week!
