From the parable of the prodigal son, Jamie draws lessons on God’s forgiveness. God has a special place in His heart for those who have “thrown it all away.” He is ready and eagerly waiting for our return.
Good soil must be prepared. Soil isn’t ready for sowing until it has been thoroughly plowed under and turned over. Show me a Christian who has been plowed, crushed, and broken by the circumstances of life, who has learned to cling to Christ and trust the Holy Spirit in difficult times, and I will show you a person whose soil is prepared and fertile. When the seed falls upon it, it will take root, blossom, and grow.
