The Kitchen Table Devotions
And he said, “There was a man who had two sons. 12 And the younger of them said to his father, ‘Father, give me the share of property that is coming to me.’ And he divided his property between them. Luke 15:11-12
Be careful what you ask for! With one decision, one choice, the younger son found himself with only a portion of the ranch and wealth that was available to him. Living with his father he has access to the whole wealth of the ranch. Living under the covering of his father he enjoys the full care and consideration of his father. Sometimes we react to what we have before we recognize what we’re going to get. Our defiance will leave us with a divided inheritance and life. Whittling our relationships down to one may make us independent but leave us incomplete. Don’t forget your Father loves you!
