The prodigal son went home because he was hungry. Christians might say we should only go home to God for the majesty of the glory of the anointing or whatever, but that dude went home because he was worn out and needed food. The father knew that was his motivation and loved and welcomed the son just the same.

A Super Catchy Pop Song About Injustice

(Warning: if you hit play on this song, you might sing this chorus for the rest of the day without really meaning to)

What can you do about injustice, really? You can’t go everywhere in the world and address or impact all of the wrong and evil, right? Sure, that’s right, but it’s not the end of the story because Jesus said every cup of cold water you give someone in need means a whole lot to Him. The answer to what you can do about injustice is that you can start somewhere. Right there in your town are people who need an advocate, people who need some help, a listening ear or a friend. Find someone hurting or lonely and help them. That’s what this song is all about. Spin it and get encouraged.

Jesus told the story of the prodigal son, and said that you are like this son, who comes crawling home, hoping to eat with the servants and sleep with the dogs. And Jesus said that He is like the father who puts a robe on your back, and a ring on your finger, and lays out a feast before you. …All that matters is that you come home.

If someone you don’t know that well is coming to your house, you might make sure things are extra clean to make a good impression. But if your best friend is coming over, you don’t do that. You know your friend doesn’t care about the mess, they just want to hang out with you. Jesus is not a stranger. You don’t need to clean up an area of your life before you ask Him to come be a part of it.

The Godly way to deal with huge news that threatens our narrative is to go to God and say ‘Lord, how do you want me to see reality?’ Not ‘how does this cable news network want me to see reality?’ or ‘How does this politician want me to see reality?’ Ask Him, through prayer and the word, what the righteous response to a situation is.
