There are no simple three-step plans you can do keep your child from going down the prodigal road. However, there are things you can do that will open doors and paths for them to come home. There’s no way to guarantee they will never leave for that far country or any guarantee they will come to their senses, but as a parent there are some very important things you must do if you are the parent of a prodigal son or daughter.
Jesus told a story which is now known as the Prodigal Son. But it's really about two sons and their relationship with their father. Each child sets off in life seeking a life of fulfillment and happiness. They take very different routes and in up in the most unlikely places.
There were two sets of people listening, worst of the worst and the best of the best. Jesus was addressing all of them in this story. In this series we will be looking at what Jesus was saying to each of these two groups about where they are at with God. That after all is a question that everyone wonders at some point in their life... I wonder what God thinks of me?
