Sunday’s sermon was on the prodigal son, and how there was much surrender to be found in that story. I took notes, to mostly pay attention (there were till doodles in the margins of my notebook) and towards the end I started writing my own thought process. As the sermon was closing and we were asked to stand for the closing song, I wrote down this thought:

“When telling people about Jesus, we tell about His great love. Once people become Christians we get too busy telling them about their sin we seem to forget about the love that we all started with.”

I still don’t know what to do with this thought. Because of course there needs to be a balance, right? People do need to be corrected when they are in the wrong. Do we spend more time concerning ourselves with people’s “sins” (no matter how great or small) than reminding them how loved they are? I know I do.
