TODAY’S READING

Luke 15:11-32

KEY VERSE: Because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions — it is by grace you have been saved. – Ephesians 2:4-5 (NIV)

INVEST IN IRAs, SECURE YOUR FUTURE

MESSAGE

Twice each day I spread rice on the roof of the house to feed the wild birds. The birds gather around to eat and then return later in the evening. One morning while I was sweeping, I noticed a bird with a wounded wing. I brought him into the house to treat his wing, and I gave him a bowl of rice and some water.

I watched as the bird ate, though he was clearly in pain. It made me realize that the Lord also looked at me when I was lost and in pain. God looked at me with loving eyes and helped heal my wounds.

After a week of care, the bird was finally able to flap his wings, although he still couldn’t fly. I had to help him join the other birds to eat on the roof.

INVEST IN IRAs, SECURE YOUR FUTURE

The next day, when I went up to check on him, he was gone. As I looked for him, I heard his singing from the roof. He could fly! Joy and pride filled my heart and gave me a small taste of what the Lord must feel when we return to God’s ways.
