Giving of Ourselves

One of Jesus' best known lessons is what is commonly known as the parable of the prodigal son. It might well be called the parable of the constant father. The father, seeing the returning prodigal afar off, runs to meet him. The father does not wait at the gate or send a servant out; in wholehearted welcome he runs out himself.

When Christ Jesus commissioned his twelve closest disciples to preach and heal, he included in his charge: "Freely ye have received, freely give." Matt. 10:8; In their giving they were to hold nothing back; they were to give without measure. And Jesus himself set the example. Repeatedly the Gospels depict his deep compassion—for individuals, for the confused multitudes, for the people of Jerusalem.
