When the prodigal son came to his sense he was aware of 2 thoughts:
- There was plenty in his father’s house.
- He himself was famishing.
These 2 truths apply to us all:
- There is abundant grace with God.
- There is utter destruction on our own.
Mercy and forgiveness are found nowhere else.
For the son who was hungry, it was the super abundance of the father’s house that attracted him home.
