Ridiculous fatherhood

So he returned home to his father. And while he was still a long way off, his father saw him coming. Filled with love and compassion, he ran to his son, embraced him, and kissed him. Luke 15:20

This father offers open arms, forgiveness, and restoration to a child who has been selfish and stupid. Instead of inflicting guilt and retribution he throws his child a party. The father is not gullible or blind to his child’s shortcomings, he’s just so faithful and unconditionally loving it’s ridiculous.

Lord, thank you for fathers who love their children so much it’s ridiculous.
