The Fathers View.
From the Father's eyes, what do you see? I remember being in college and an unruly young punk. I thought I knew everything. Until I was kicked out of school. Something I deserved? Yes. Something I needed? Probably. Something I agreed with? Maybe not. But then months later I was working as a boys dean in Australia. Sitting on the other side of the table. Rather than being kicked out I had to be a part of the disciplinary process to remove an unruly boarding student. It wasn't easy, but again the change in perspective opened my eyes. To go from being disciplined to disciplining was very different from me. All of a sudden I had to understand the schools perspective.
Read: Luke 15:11-32 again. Read it slowly. Ask God to open your eyes to the different perspectives.
Journal: What did the father feel when his son left? What did he think when his son was gone? What would the normal reaction toward the son be from you or from an average father? What was different about the father in the Story?
Pray: Simply ask God today, to help you see life while understanding that Fathers love.
