This past week I have continued to think about our “God Tweet” from Sunday, October 12th and the verse from Isaiah 30 which said, “And you will hear a voice behind you saying, ‘This is the way, walk ye in it. Do not err to the right or to the left.'”  This verse has caused me to think of Timothy Keller’s book entitled Prodigal God.
In this book Keller writes about the parable of the Prodigal Son and mentions that the term “prodigal” means extravagant. He then suggests that the most extravagent character in the story is the father, who is extravagant with his love and grace. He welcomes his younger son back who has “erred to the left” with his profligate living, and he invites his older son who has “erred to the right” with his harsh and condescending attitude to join the “welcome back’ party he is throwing for his younger son.
The father of course, represents God who with his extravagant love and grace invites all who have erred to the right or the left to come back to him.
Prodigal God is an inspiring book and I believe anyone who reads it wil be blessed.
