Luke 15: 11-24
11 To illustrate the point further, Jesus told them this story: "A man had two sons. 12 The younger son told his father, 'I want my share of your estate now, instead of waiting until you die.' So his father agreed to divide his wealth between his sons. 13 "A few days later this younger son packed all his belongings and took a trip to a distant land, and there he wasted all his money on wild living. 14 About the time his money ran out, a great famine swept over the land, and he began to starve. 15 He persuaded a local farmer to hire him to feed his pigs. 16 The boy became so hungry that even the pods he was feeding the pigs looked good to him. But no one gave him anything. 17 "When he finally came to his senses, he said to himself, 'At home even the hired men have food enough to spare, and here I am, dying of hunger! 18 I will go home to my father and say, "Father, I have sinned against both heaven and you, 19 and I am no longer worthy of being called your son. Please take me on as a hired man."' 20 "So he returned home to his father. And while he was still a long distance away, his father saw him coming. Filled with love and compassion, he RAN to his son, embraced him, and kissed him. 21 His son said to him, 'Father, I have sinned against both heaven and you, and I am no longer worthy of being called your son. ' 22 "But his father said to the servants, 'Quick! Bring the finest robe in the house and put it on him. Get a ring for his finger, and sandals for his feet. 23 And kill the calf we have been fattening in the pen. We must celebrate with a feast, 24 for this son of mine was dead and has now returned to life. He was lost, but now he is found.' So the party began.

For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, 39 nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
The Great Divorce by C. S. Lewis Having read all of C.S. Lewis books; this is his best book of all! As Lewis states in the preface, he is writing this book to counter Blake's book written declaring "The Marriage of Heaven and Hell". Lewis himself proclaims not all paths lead to heaven ...
33Miles by 33Miles This album was a pleasant surprise with 6 or 7 of the tracks being ones I considered very good. My initial review mistakenly confused 33 miles with the new Mercy Me album. 33 Miles shows good heart and spirit content while maintaining your attention ...
The Twenty-First Time by Monk & Neagle These talented young men remind us of the simplicity of loving Jesus. It's not about how much scripture we know, time spent prayer, reading His word or giving to His Kingdom.
Rather, "what you do to the least of these you do unto me". It is reminiscent ...
