This weekend at church, Pastor Krist threw down a great message on our personal calling, with reference to the prodigal son (Luke 15:11). Some of the things I took away from it:
-we all have a little prodigal, when we waste our lives on our own plans
-we sometimes would rather fail and get our own way than flourish in God's way
-God's love is so irrationally generous...He likes to waste His grace on sons that waste their destiny
-there are things that are loved because they are worthy, and things that are worthy because they are loved
-everyone has a calling, specific design, possibility, potential, destiny...
