God is a gift-giving God. God showers us with gifts. All that we have and all that we are is the result of God’s abundant grace. If we fail to understand that, it will not only shape the way we view God, it will shape the way we respond to his gifts. It will lead us to take for granted the gifts we have received and wallow in disappointment when we don’t get what we ask for. We see that in the story that Jesus told about two sons. One son profoundly aware of the gifts his father had given him. The other son sadly unaware that all that the father had was his.
Key Text: Luke 15:17-32
