prodigal or orphan?

Being without parents can be challenging – sometimes we may feel like our parents have abandoned us, like an orphan.  Sometimes, we leave our parents for various reasons.  Thankfully with God as our Father, we are never orphans & our Heavenly Father is the epitome of acceptance & restoration (like the father in the Prodigal’s Son parable).  Let’s be careful that we don’t treat our Heavenly Father in the same context of our earthly parents – responding to Him as an orphan or prodigal.  God is the perfect Father & perhaps the various disappointments that we may have with our earthly parents are only to serve as reminders that the human experience is a flawed metaphor for the reality of the Genuine Love of our Heavenly Father 🙂

Saving Moses is an expression of the Father’s Genuine Love 🙂
