At that time, 1 the publi pipes and sinners approached Jesus to listen to him. 2 the Pharisees, however, and the masters of the law criticized Jesus: "this man welcomes sinners and makes meal with them". 3 then Jesus told them this parable: 11 "A man had two sons. 12 the younger son said to his father, ' father, give me the portion of the inheritance that my place '. And the father divided the property between them. 13 a few days later the younger son gathered what was your and left for a faraway place. And there squandered everything on a riotous life. 14 When he had spent everything he had, there was a great famine in that region, and he started spending need. 15 Then went to work for a man of the place, which sent to your field take care of pigs. 16 the boy want to kill the hunger with food the pigs ate, but not this gave him. 17 Then sobered up and said: ' how many of my father's employees have plenty of bread, and here I am starving '. 18 I'm going, I'm going back to my father and say to him, ' father, I have sinned against God and against you; 19 no longer deserve to be called your son. Treat me as one of your employees '. 20 Then he left and went back to your father. When he was still away, your father saw him and felt compassion. Ran to meet him, embraced him and covered him with kisses. 21 the son, then said to him, ' father, I have sinned against God and against you. I no longer deserve to be called your son. ' 22 But the father said to his servants: ' Bring quickly the best robe to put on my son. And put a ring on your finger and sandals on his feet. 23 Bring a fat calf and kill it. Let's make a feast. 24 Why this my son was dead and made live; He was lost and has been found '. And started the party. 25 the eldest son was in the field. On his return, already near the House, he heard music and noise. 26 Then called one of the servants and asked what was going on. 27 the servant replied: ' is your brother's back. Your father killed the beef fat, because the recovered health '. 28 But he was angry and didn't want to enter. The father, coming out, insisted to him. 29 but he answered his father, ' I work for you for so many years, I never disobeyed any order your. And you never gave me a goat for I celebrate with my friends. 30 when he got this your son, who has squandered your property with prostitutes, you kill the fatted calf for him. ' 31 So the father said, ' son, you are always with me, and all that is mine is yours. 32 But now we must celebrate and rejoice, because this brother of yours was dead and has to live; was lost, and found "'.
Notice in the picture, the scope of love to see if we're coming back? We need to have the humility of the father's heart, which is always open arms to welcome everyone who walked away from his home, to welcome you and me in our miseries, weaknesses, the difficulties we've been through, in the sins that we perish. He doesn't want us to prostrate, He not only welcomes us if we don't want to raise the situation in which we find ourselves, because any time that dad's back with open arms, and not only to welcome us, but to embrace, to take care of the wound, the brand of everything bad that SIN has done in us, especially not to let us return to the mud , not to drop again, to not let us prostrate. Sometimes, the world takes us so hard and in ruins, let us virtually dead. How many died in sin, because they never came back to the loving arms of his father. Today, the father is calling us for two things: first, to back him, that we may be welcomed in your loving arms, to be healed, revitalized, to be cured by the merciful love of the father who loves us so much. The parent who takes care of our wounds, that takes care of all the evil that the world has done to us, whether we are with open arms, healed by his mercy to welcome so many brothers wounded and hurt by the mark of sin. You don't have to be a big sin, but any and all sin must be upheld. It's not sin by sin, but the sinner marked for this sin, the sinner who is me and you that we need to get this sin that is within us to be healed by the merciful love of God. Jesus did meal and welcomed sinners, we can't have a heart less than him! We need to sit down, welcome, love and care for each and every sinner in the same way God cares, and loves our heart wounded by sin!
