“But the father said to his servants, ‘Quick! Bring the best robe and put it on him. Put a ring on his finger and sandals on his feet.” Luke 15:22 (NIV)
The verse we use today is from one of the most familiar parables used by Jesus in his ministry – the story of the Prodigal Son. This verse tells us of the father’s reaction when his lost son returns home. We realize that Jesus wanted to teach how God, who is our Father, receives us when we come to Him in faith and ask His forgiveness. Let us think today of the words, “Bring the best robe and put it on him.” God wants to give us the very best that has. He covers us with His righteousness so we can fit into His heavenly family. This is the kind of Father we have in heaven. He sees our needs each day and when we come to Him He give us the very best. Let us be thankful that we have a heavenly Father who will always give us best and never give us second to best.
