I have a website that is hosted in Moscow Russia. Pretty wild if you ask me; ten years ago I never would have thought it would be. But that's not important compared to the content there, or, a VERY touching analogy I almost missed. I have a series of pages there I call the Papa challenge. It's a friendly challenge to fathers to spend more time with their children. One of today's projects was finished enough to make into another page. Just as I was about to leave the site, I thought about the third picture down as the life of a poor kid left to himself. The last picture is the life of a kid whose dad tried to intervene in a positive way. To me, it's so graphic and almost sad, that I hope I never forget it. Not only that, is it possible that if your life has been a struggle, and you were one of the kids left to him / her self that God says: I know what you went through, you did the best a kid could do alone. I'll help from now on.
I have to be careful not to mislead; the Bible says that we're all separated from God by our sins, not anything else. He paid an incalculable price to get people back, but it's on His terms. Jesus took man's sins upon himself for those who would receive that substitution. Then he makes people new, or "born again".
