Jesus deliberately chooses to keep company with sinners. He also uses the parable of the Prodigal Son to teach us about the immense and infinite love of God.
The good news of God’s love means the most to those most in need of it. By making friends of sinners, Jesus shocks everyone – His followers and critics alike.
O Jesus, may I have the ability to spend myself on others. Help me to be more like the Father who loves his son without condition or limit.
