Lessons from the Prodigal Son (1)

Lessons from the Prodigal Son (1)


“I want my share…now.”                                                   Lk 15:12 NLT

The Prodigal Son made two mistakes: (1) He rejected his father’s authority. The first step that gets you into trouble is the one that takes you away from God. Like the Prodigal, you leave home saying, “Give me.” And if you’re fortunate enough to survive your own best thinking, you come back home saying, “Forgive me.” God loves you. Everything you need, He has already provided! (2) He left his father’s house. The Devil will do whatever it takes to get you out from under God’s influence and protection. He’ll put a restless spirit in you so that nothing makes you happy. Two areas he will work the hardest to generate discontent in are: (a) Your marriage. That’s why you constantly need to work on it. The reason there are weeds in your garden instead of roses is because you don’t spend enough time working there. Your marriage isn’t just a covenant before God, it’s a shelter for your passions and dysfunctions. Furthermore, that “other person” who looks so attractive to you has baggage too. And when they move in they’ll bring it with them! (b) Your church. Who feeds you spiritually? Who monitors your growth in God? Would you let your children stay home from school because they don’t like the teacher or don’t want to learn? Come on, be sensible! God says His Word is like “a hammer that breaks the rock in pieces” (Jer 23:29 NKJV). When the hammer of God’s Word falls in church next Sunday morning—you need to be under it. You should say, “I was glad when they said unto me, Let us go into the house of the Lord” (Ps 122:1).
