The story of the prodigal son is a powerful depiction of the Father’s extravagant forgiveness, compassion, and unimaginable grace. In this parable, we see that God does not always intervene or get in the way when we make sinful decisions. Instead, He gifts us with free will, allowing us to choose our own paths.
The prodigal son in the story abandoned everything he knew and had learned, squandering his wealth and living a life of excess. Despite his son’s foolishness and rebellion, the father watched eagerly for his return. This parable serves as a reminder that we are like the prodigal son - often making mistakes and straying away from God’s plan for us. Yet, no matter how far we may wander, God never gives up on the possibility of our return.
