Reflection from David Chang
The prodigal son as he returned to the father, his mind was made up: “I am no longer worthy to be called your son” He knew the sins he committed, and he was ashamed to be called son. But the father was never ashamed to call this son his own. He ran to him, embraced his filthy son, and restored his sonship right there and then. God’s thoughts are higher than ours, all who look to him will never be ashamed. AMEN.
I sought the Lord, and he answered me and delivered me from all my fears. Those who look to him are radiant, and their faces shall never be ashamed. - Ps 34:4-5 (ESV)
