Lost and found

In Sunday’s Gospel, we have three parables that Jesus told to help the people understand God’s joy and the joy of all in heaven when someone who has lost or turned away from God (a sinner) has realised and come back to seek God’s forgiveness. The parables are all stories with a message, of God’s forgiveness, of God being so happy and full of joy when we or someone who has lost their way in life and realises and turns back to God.  Today we have looked closely at the Lost Son and the message is clear we need to remember if we get lost we can also be found – God will always be there for us ready when we are.
