Adjusting to Promise

After following Moses out and being freed from such a prolonged miserable ordeal, Israel was willing to return to their former situation because they had now come up against unconventional circumstances. They resisted adjusting to the freedoms and responsibilities of promise. It takes courage to sail beyond the familiar harbor in order to possess and share the riches beyond the next horizon. Lk.15:17-18, Amp — “But when he [finally] came to his senses, he said, ‘How many of my father’s hired men have more than enough food, while I am dying here of hunger! 18 I will get up and go to my father, and I will say to him, “Father, I have sinned against heaven and in your sight.”
