Grow up!

July 2, 2010: What I Am Reading This Week

What are we going to do when we get home?  When the two sons
of the parable of the prodigal son both have returned to
their father, what then?   The answer is simple:  they have
to become fathers themselves.  Sons have to become fathers;
daughters have to become mothers.  Being children of God
involves growing up and becoming like God.
