Today we will be looking at another parable on God’s love. This is a popular parable which can be found in Luke 15:11-32. It is also referred to as the parable of the prodigal son. Here is a quick summary of the parable. A man had two sons. One day, the younger son asked for his portion of his father’s inheritance to be given to him. His father did and the boy traveled to a far country where he squandered the money. Just like everything else, whatever is spent and not replaced, runs out. Left with no other option, he picked up a job to look after swine so he could eat off their food (yuck!). Soon he realized that he had hit rock bottom. He came back to his senses and decided to go back home; planned to tell his dad to make him his servant because he was no longer worthy to be called his son. His dad saw him down the road, ran to him, and made a huge feast to welcome him home.
