Read Luke 15:11-32 (

The parable of the lost son, or as one band sings ‘sometimes the prodigal, sometimes the other brother’.
Maybe you’re praying for a ‘prodigal’ amongst your family or friends. Someone who may be far from God at the moment – maybe you are the “prodigal”?

In this story we often only focus on the two sons – but what about their father?
He was looking out for his son and when He saw him returning, filled with love, he ran to him.
God looks out for us, waiting for us with open arms to run to Him.



We see divorce, heartbreak and betrayal in movies, books and hardest of all, in our families. Youngblood by 5 Seconds of Summer begins by painting a picture of an “ideal” relationship before explaining how it all ended sour.

Love me ’til the day I die and Surrender my everything ’cause you made me believe you’re mine. There is only one person whom we can truly have this type of relationship with. Jesus.

1 John 3:1 ( explores the idea of God loving us ’til the day we die, and that He is now our father! Let the knowledge of this love be the sound track of your life today.



Have you ever felt like your shame is a barrier stopping you from coming to God? The Heart of Man is that film which goes deep. I mean, really deep.

It’s a modern-day portrayal of the prodigal son – that famous parable Jesus told all those years ago of a father’s reckless love for his rebellious son. It’s talking about you. And this movie captures the ‘rawness’ of that story with brilliant honesty.

It asks the question: instead of the shame you’re feeling being a barrier to God’s love, what if you saw it rather as a bridge to forgiveness, freedom, and hope?

I told you it goes deep.

Read 1 John 3:1 here –



God loves us so much that He sent His Son Jesus to die for our sins wow. That’s love in action.
It’s always amazing when someone treats you lovingly, whether it be giving you a hug, making you a cup of tea or sending you a scripture.

Gary Chapman identified 5 love languages (i.e. how we feel loved): words of affirmation, acts of service, gifts, affection and quality time. This can be used as a tool on how to show love. However, Jesus shows us ultimate love and He is our ultimate guide.

How could you love like Jesus this week?
