Of Mongrels And Prodigals

"...your brother was dead and is alive again, and was lost and is found.' " (Luke 15:32)


We have all heard of the story of the Prodigal son in Luke's Gospel account.
 The younger brother who:
  • shamed his father by demanding his inheritance there and then;
  • flittered away this inheritance through sinful lust;
  • came to repentance while wallowing in a pig sty;
  • was restored by his father on his return home.
And - while the Pharisees listened to the story told by Jesus with grinding teeth, and murderous intentions - we all marvel at the unconditional love, forgiveness, and mercy poured out by the father.

But lurking all the while in the background was another prodigal...

Pruning Back The Weeds

"I am the true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser..." 

We are all guilty of it.
We do it without thinking.
We are so accustomed to it that it has become like second nature. Like breathing. 

But breathing supplies the oxygen to our lungs - oxygen that is transported to all the nether regions of our body via the blood network, to perform functions that our brain requires them to do. 

What I'm referring is not as life-sustaining like that...
