The parable of the prodigal son is familiar to most of us. In Luke 15 Jesus tells of the son that went to his father, asked for and received his inheritance then squandered the money on drunkenness and prostitutes. He then came to his senses and realizing his father’s servants were better off than he was went crawling back only to be embraced by his father who threw a party for him. The brother then became angry and the father had to explain it all to him. It is a great passage and has many teachable aspects to it. But how did the son grow up thinking he needed to go off on his own and what were the consequences that led to the realization to come home?
