If you came here because of the title of this post to get some pointers on using God to your advantage, you’re going to be disappointed. And blessed.
Blessed like The Prodigal Son.
He wanted to use his father’s resources to honor his own selfish interests. And he found that it didn’t work. And on his way home to use his father as a source of employment, he met a father who’d been looking down the lane — awaiting his return.
I like to think that it was at that moment that the son realized what was really important in life — the love of a father and the response of a child.
Christians often talk about having a relationship with God. This is what we mean. You can’t used God as you would use any other resource. Instead, he offers you his heart of love and asks that you love him in return.
This podcast speaks of how this happens in our lives — the lives of prodigals.
