Two thousand years ago Jesus, telling a story to his friends, says that God, ‘seeing his son a long way off, was moved with pity.’ God is constantly on the lookout for his children.
If you feel close to God with his love and presence, or maybe like the son in the story you’re still a long way off, God is constantly loving you without any strings attached. Sometimes as parents or as children we mess up, or struggle with the love; but not God. You began with him, and will end with him; love at the beginning, throughout life, and at the end. Father Spicer, Priory Church and St Paul’s, Manton.
