Prodigals will give you a thousand reasons why they left the Fathers’s house. But the truth is their heart had gone to a far country long before they got an excuse for their feet to take them there. ~Edward Whitmire
Looking and yearning happens early and when you give in to the heart, the feet naturally follow. Learn to control the heart and you will not waiver. Watch the direction of your eyes! Enticements are always there even when you know better! Keep your mind from wandering illicit paths.
You know all the words of the wise to the foolish, elder to younger, safe to the prodigal…never stop loving or sowing compassion. Seed produces fruit in due season.
