I’m not good at expressing how I feel but last night’s message really touched me. It was a heart-opening understanding of what is God’s love. I’ve always said the my God is a loving and just God, but I’ve always wanted Him to “smite” those that hurt me and often get mad because they keep getting “rewarded” even though I think they’re awful people. After listening last night, I understand why that is and when I understood that, it seemed like a lot more of my relationship with God fell into place. Since we just finished up the Sunday School session about the Prodigal Son, I put what you taught last night in with that story and realized I’m the eldest son. I want to be rewarded for being good and faithful and I’m very upset when He welcomes and rewards those that abandoned Him. I realize that story is not only about forgiveness but about unconditional love.
Thank you for speaking to me last night."
