PUNISH THE PRODIGAL?

The real you is captured by

The One who never fails!

He has loved you forever

And finally prevails!

.

.

You had to try the world with

Its fantasy of joy,

No real joy!  It just ridiculed

And teased to annoy!

.

.

Insidious the tempter tried

Many times but failed!

To return you to swine husks

But each time Christ prevailed!

.

.

“I will return to my father”

Confess that I have sinned

Just take me as your servant.”

But the father only grinned!

.

.

Through his tears of joy, “My son has

Returned!  Kill the fatted calf.

We will celebrate with gladness

For it is in his behalf!”

.

.

“He has sinned but sins shackles

Are no more! Now he is clean!

We will rejoice!  We will not frown

Not slander nor demean!”

.

.

“Brand new suit!  Put him in it

For my son who was lost

Is not found!  He is alive

Penitent forget the cost!”

.

.

Jesus told this story.  Yes,

Those tears of joy are real!

The tears of God, The Father,

Believe it!  He does feel!

.

.

He feels our sins, He felt them on that cross!

.
