God’s kindness extends beyond His forgiveness. It is wonderful to have our slate of crimes against Him wiped clean, as He “canceled out the certificate of debt consisting of decrees against us . . . having nailed it to the cross” (Colossians 2:14). And even as He pardons, He also enriches His children with a lavish array of divine, eternal riches. Jesus delivered a profound picture of this reality in His parable of the prodigal son.
