The Prodigal Son:
It tells of the younger son in a family, who obtains his inheritance from his
father. (Compare 21:17.) This son leaves for a distant land,
where he squanders all in debauchery, has to take up the work of herding
swine, and is even reduced to hungering for the food of swine. He finally
comes to his senses and decides to return home, if only to work for his
father as a hired laborer. As he nears home, his father takes the positive
step of welcoming him, even holding a feast. The older brother, who had
at home working, resents the mercy shown. But the father says that they
should rejoice because the son who was dead now lives.—Luke 15:11-32.
like the father in the Prodigal Son parable, we forgive
because we are so happy to restore harmony! We
pray and ask the Father for help in restoring our
families and like the Father, forget the sin when
confessed and think of it no more.
