The Prodigal

In his classic book “The return of the Prodigal Son” by Henri Nouwen, the author writes:
“He has no desire to punish (people). They have already been punished excessively by their own inner and outward waywardness. The Father wants simply to let them know that the love they have searched for in such distorted ways has been, is, and always will be there for them.”
Quoted in The Lost Message of Jesus by Steve Chalke
