Judges 2:11-12; Isaiah 5:1-7; Jonah 2:8; Malachi 1:2-5; Matthew 23:37; John 3:16-20; Acts 7:51-53; 2 Timothy 3:1-5
For although they knew God, they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking, and their foolish hearts were darkened.
The parable of the prodigal son shows the way we reject God’s love and the way He continues to love us steadfastly. Our sin is a rejection of God’s love and His care for us just like the prodigal son rejected his father’s love and care.
Everything was perfect in the world until we broke it. When humanity chose to sin, the world that was once perfect became messed up and broken. Sin is ultimately a rejection of God Himself. Because of sin bad things happen, we experience all types of pain, and death has come into the world. All of creation groans and wishes that the world be perfect and good like it was before.
