I will just leave this here for you to think about. Sadly, I am a lot like the elder son and need to spend some time before the Lord repenting for my own self-righteousness. I hope that each of you will take a good look at your hearts. Are you like the prodigal son, the one whose sin was so evident? Or maybe you are like the elder son, suffering from what Mark Hall calls “sinvy”? Blessings to each of you for a day filled with love, kindness and introspection.
On a side note, if you happen to be on Twitter, please go on the site of our gracious First Lady and read her post today. Without getting political, I just want to say that Melania Trump has been a shining example of what a First Lady should be. In spite of all of the constant criticism of her husband, she has maintained a calm and loving demeanor. I pray for her and Barron (and the President) as they leave the White House and pursue a private life. I wish them all the best that God has to offer because of all of their sacrifices and hardships for the last four years.
