When God forgives, He always gives. God follows His forgiveness with giving every time. We humans do just the opposite. We forgive, then put the ones forgiven “on probation,” letting them linger just outside the warmth of fellowship until we’re certain they’ve suffered enough.
The father in the story of the prodigal son forgave like God forgives. When he welcomed his son home, he didn’t just say “you’re forgiven,” he gave gifts symbolic of son-ship and restoration. He even threw a party and celebrated. God bless you.
God bless you!
